I was disappointed in this book. The material really isn't anything new.
The book's lay-out is poorly designed...huge quotes from professionals in the center of pages. I assume this is to make-up for lack of content. The author's personal stories and experiences are funny, but I wasn't expecting a mini-auto biography. If you absolutely know nothing about making healthy choices (don't smoke, avoid over-exposure to sun) and need the very basic tricks to look and remain feeling a bit younger, then this is the book for you. If you need something more substantial I think Christopher Hopkin's book, Staging Your Come Back, is far more "to the point" and better written. As for anti-aging health tips, you can easily find the ones listed in Aging Backwards on-line for free. Seriously, there are more informative books available.

As a licensed esthetician, teaching my clients how to take care of their skin & look their best at any age is an integral part of my business. I was thrilled when I received my copy of 'Aging Backwards' by Jackie Silver because she definitely knows her stuff! This book is a collection of THE BEST beauty & skin care tips around all in one place. Every woman should have a copy of this book and consider it to be their 'anti-aging' bible! Kudos to you Jackie!

I purchased this book because the topic interests me a lot and the reviews for it were so great. I was expecting to learn something but instead found a most pathetic book. In it it had so much information on the most boring topics. Things like road crash statistics, crossword puzzles and how she used to be obese and was on a 8 month icecream diet. I hated this book and found the info in it useless.

Very disappointed in this book. Like the other reviewers said, it is so light on content that big pull-quotes from so-called experts are used on every page to take up space. Much of this content appears like cut-and-paste material from other sources. The arrangement of the content seems very disjointed. Hard to follow. Not logical. Not an easy read.

Save your money or buy "How Not To Look Old." I really pity the women who paid $20 for this slim paperback on her Aging Backwards website.

I met Jackie Silver in Las Vegas last week over drinks, where we exchanged books and parted as friends forever. I kept trying to sneak peeks at the inside of the book while we were chatting, it's so compelling!

The next day I began reading, and breezed through the book in just a few hours, it's that easy to digest the information.

From the right supplements and foods for your body, to her personal experiences with products and procedures promising to reverse the effects of again, Jackie has tested it all. She provides information on how to "stop" biological, or genetic aging of your cells, mental aging so your brain and attitude stay young, and cosmetic aging... so you can look, think and feel young all at the same time.

I recommend picking up a copy of this delightful book to get an overview of hundreds of easy and actionable ideas to help you on your anti-aging quest.

Now I'm headed over to Jackie's blog ( [...] ), where I expect to be a frequent visitor for more tips on how to stay young.

I loved this book! Jackie Silver- a.k.a "Aging Backwards" shares tons of valuable tips, information and funny stories about her own quest to slow the aging process. She's learned, through trial and error as well as by consulting with leaders in the fields of health and beauty, what works...and what doesn't.

While reading the book, I felt like I was getting top secret information from a trusted friend- one who's been there, done that and wants to make sure you get all the information you need to make an informed decision for yourself.

I'd highly recommend this book if you're looking to find tried and true ways to look and feel your best- all while enjoying a good laugh...no matter what your age.

What I love most about this book is that you can pick it up, skip around, put it down, pick it back up and always find a useful snippet of anti-aging information.

We all read the news stories with helpful nutrition, exercise and supplement findings, but Jackie's put many of them in her book, in usable nuggets. Easy to read. Easy to understand. Helpful.

Plus, she's funny. It's a treat to read some of her humorous anecdotes and also to see her unapologetic references to cosmetic surgery.

If you're looking for a heavily footnoted, scientific tome, this is not for you. But if you want something you can carry with you, mark up useful info and find it again later when you're at the health food store or cosmetic counter, this is the book for you.
