This older-man/younger-woman couple attempts to dispel myths about such "May-December" pairs but mostly repeats standard, even banal, advice. Cliches like "playing old tapes" and "I needed to be me" occur, as do more serious flaws: Prenuptial agreements are seen as predicting failure while honesty without limits is touted until the chapter on sex, where there is a (welcome) caveat on sharing too much about fantasies, former partners, and negative feelings. People cited in examples often have histories of poor judgment, detracting from the reader's confidence in their celebration of an "age different" relationship. The upbeat tone and some examples help the authors' worthy cause, but the bulk of the book will, at best, confirm the beliefs of the already converted. Not recommended.E.
