Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Country music star Judd (Naomi's Breakthrough Guide) offers a mix of salty advice and inspirational suggestions to baby boomers as they age. Based on her own experience, interviews with contemporaries and reliable medical tips, Judd provides a sprightly and engaging perspective on the goal of healthily sustaining oneself physically and emotionally. Judd debunks the youth-obsessed media, which relentlessly stereotype and ridicule seniors. The author strongly believes in honing a positive attitude that includes practicing five daily acts of kindness, such as extending oneself to neighbors. Judd also affirms the importance of building a strong network of friends and family as well as relationships that may include a long-term love and satisfying sexual involvement. Judd's strong faith leads her to offer evidence for the value of spirituality as one ages, and she devotes a chapter to the often touchy subject of getting along with children and grandchildren. Nicely juxtaposed with her intellectual and psychological musings are the author's down-to-earth recommendations on nutrition, exercise and the role of both traditional and complementary medicine. Uplifting and informative, this should be popular with both fans and middle-aged readers looking for advice on how to move gracefully, and gratefully, into middle and old age. Photos not seen by PW.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Glenda York on December 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover
What I like best about this book is Naomi's advice for combating age-related stereotypes in our youth-obsessed culture. She says that practicing gratitude is important, that everyday acts of generosity can add years to your life. She also addresses the challenges facing boomers, from caring for parents to nurturing friendships and romantic love, and sprinkles her advice with funny anecdotes in keeping with her belief that laughter is a life enhancer. While there are physical losses that come with age, there are far more benefits--benefits of the heart and spirit that only come with experience and wisdom.
