Very happy I bought this for the 50yr ma
on December 28, 2010
So I'm 26... I read about half the book the night before I gave this to my mother for her 50th. I really liked it and wished that I had more time to finish it. Even though I'm only :) halfway to 50 I was feeling like it applied a lot to my life as well. My mother was struggling with the idea of turning 50. The three best things (in this order)that we did to help her get over this feeling was 1) overwhelm her with "little" surprises... 2) let all her friends, family, and coworkers know (They added to the little surprises way more than what we could have done)and 3) we gave her this book (Fifty Things to Do When You Turn Fifty: Fifty Experts on the Subject of Turning Fifty)to read on the down time after everything was all said and done. She positivity commented on the book a few times on how it really gave her a different outlook than what she had.
