Customer Reviews

Easy to read.

Is Ms. Gilman suggesting that if you don't "invest" your money in these procedures than you are less desireable?
Katherine A. Webster
It's an entertaining and honest, easy-read true story shared from the heart.

Self promoting, egotistical nonsense. I did this; I said that; my jeans are the best. Plastic surgery is the secret? Blech..

This book was such a disapointment to me that I have actually considered returning it to Amazon. But I guess that wouldn't be right. I paid my money and took my chances, this book was bought by me on presale.
To start, I have been buying Diane Gilman jeans for the last several years and although they are not perfect, (quality and fit can be inconsistent), overall they are not bad. They are exactly what you would expect from offshore manufactured garments. However, this is not a review about her jeans but rather, her book.
I don't read a great deal of fiction, novels and bestsellers, but I DO love a good biography and especially from women in business who have experience, success and some uplifting information to share. This book is not about that.

Pure and simple the book is trashy. Feeling great, staying sexy and aging agelessly, according to Ms. Gilman can be most easily achieved with the help of face lifts, lip injections, growth hormones, hormone replacement therapy, and the simple procedure of taking fat from your behind and injecting it into your face. Also, she reminds us several times, that women age five times as fast as men after menopause, meaning, of course, that we are not interesting or desireable without the wonder of modern science. (plastic surgery and injections are at the top of that list).

In Europe and Asia, there is a concept of "women of a certain age" that is beautiful and elegant. Diane Gilman either doesn't subscribe to that idea, can't understand it, or very simply can't let go of her "rocker chick" image.

This book was recommended in a women's magazine that I respect, so I ordered it without reading reviews, as I'm always curious about the experiences of successful women. I can't believe that I fell for the hype. This book isn't about aging gracefully at all. The "advice" dispensed boils down to 1) get a face lift, 2) take a younger lover and have lots of sex, and 3) dream of success and it will be yours. This is all dispensed in a breathy, "girlfriend" style, much like the women's magazines that focus on clinging to youth. Sorry Diane, you've led an interesting life and could have offered so much more.

First I have to say that I regularly watch Diane on HSN and as a smack in the center baby boomer I love the hype about jeans and clothes. I have bought several items, .Although there are a couple inspirational statements in the book. I was disappointed. The writing was choppy and it seemed like there were missed opportunities for more substance. I have been more inspired watching her than I was by the book..

Expected more of a motivational book. Seemed to be more of a "look at what I did, aren't I great" kind of book

If you are a woman over 40 you NEED to read this book. Even if you have never seen Diane on the Home Shopping Network chatting live with the hundreds of women who love her and her line of clothing, and you wouldn't dream of buying fashions on TV; get this book. It's fun and amazing and truly inspiring, not preachy or fanatical or silly. As an aging woman in America it is often difficult to still feel relevant. Read this and get over it. "Today is the youngest day of your life", it's NOT too late to feel and do something great.
