Entering the Age of Elegance
Reviewed By: Georgia Richardson
There are plenty of books on aging, but Entering the Age of Elegance stands alone in its completeness. The author doesn\’t just tell you what to do, she tells you how, and offers resources galore for more exploration of this rite of passage; this age of elegance. It shouldn\’t be called a self-help book, but a book for SELF.
The reader is first encouraged to re-discover who they are right now, at this moment in time. Then identify the qualities they already possess, polish them, or remove those attributes that would prevent them from living a life of elegance. And then finally, affirm the choices they have made.
Written like a midlife travel guide, each chapter is clear, concise, and full of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual guidance. The subtitles are as entertaining as the information inside is valuable. There are topics like, Change Your Oil Filter, The Will and Grace Scenario, Beyond Support Pantyhose, and Just Heard It through the Grapevine.
While some readers have labeled it a midlife road map, and some have called it a manual for living midlife, I believe that after reading Entering the Age of Elegance, everyone will agree that transitioning into midlife and beyond can now definitely be made with style and grace. Whatever the stage of your journey, you\’ll definitely want to read this book and probably more than once; and then return to it often for the many resources inside.
