July 11th, 2018

Title: Fast Track to Romance: An Exclusive Online Dating Guide for Mature Women Available in: Kindle and Paperback Author: Gail Karpus Reviewed for the NABBW by: Anne L. Holmes Few of us want to spend the last decades of our lives alone. That’s a given. But given that the Center for Disease Prevention (CDC), recently reported that the average 65-year-old woman can expect to live for 19.3 more years, and we’ve long known that women traditionally live longer than men, the odds are pretty good that we will find ourselves single at some time in our mature years. Beyond that, as Fast... Read More

The Chameleon

November 18th, 2016

I wish I’d had access to Merrick Rosenberg’s book, The Chameleon, Life-Changing Wisdom for Anyone with a Personality or Knows Someone Who Does, about 30 years ago, when I worked as a trainer for a personnel management firm. Back then, I worked for a company that provided HR services for businesses too small to afford an HR department. There was plenty of work for our organization, because whenever you get two or more people interacting together – or trying to – there is always opportunity for communication failure. Not because the parties don’t all speak the same language,... Read More

A Woman with (No) Strings Attached: A Memoir

June 10th, 2015

A Woman with (No) Strings Attached: A Memoir Author: Lucie Novak Reviewed by: Anne Holmes for the NABBW Another “slice of life” autobiographical tale, this one is an unusual and explicit memoir of one women’s journey to sexual enlightenment. Author Lucie Novak tells readers at the outset that for much of her life, she had found physical activities such as skiing (“… and I am a very good skiier.”) far more exciting than sex. In fact, she writes, at age 58, having lived with a lifetime of boring, conventional sex with her husband, she had actually convinced herself... Read More

Baby Boomer Love (A Guide to Finding New Love After 50) Author: Marion A. Eggleton Amazon Kindle Nook Reviewed for the NABBW by Anne L. Holmes As a Baby Boomer woman who has been twice married, currently for over 25 years, I have often said that should I ever become widowed, I cannot imagine that I would seek to marry again. Now don’t misunderstand me: My husband and I enjoy a very happy and supportive union. (That’s why the statement above does not entertain the options of separation or divorce. ) But now that I am in my 60s, my attitude is that should something happen to change my current... Read More

Don’t Ask And I Won’t Have to Lie: “50 is the new 30” and other tall tales Beverly Mahone www.beverlymahone.com Reviewed by:  Anne Holmes for the NABBW This is Mahone’s third book, and sort of like the old “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, it gives baby boomer women permission to say whatever we feel will benefit the listener. Mahone says this book is not for you if: You’ve never lied to your children – “I’m sure Billy sent you an invitation to his birthday party, honey. It must have gotten lost in the mail…” You’ve never lied to get out of a jam – “But officer,... Read More

Millerwww.lastfirstdate4boomers.com Reviewed By: Anne Holmes Miller\’s book is subtitled “For Boomers Only – Insider\’s Secrets for Finding Your Soul Mate in Cyber-Space.” Astoundingly, half of the 78 million Baby Boomers in the US are single and searching cyberspace for a mate.
