If you are over 50 or approaching it, this is a must read--candid and enlightening. These three women have pulled out all the stops and given us the opportunity to see how collaboration and friendship can create, heal, support all of us in this fascinating walk through the later part of our lives. You will recognize yourself or a loved one in any number of the topics discussed in 3-part harmony--each author giving her take on a given subject. This format, in and of itself, is a creative, interesting approach and enhances the reading experience. Get the book, read it, send it to friends! Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
As a blogger for women over fifty, I'm well aware that a woman's journey through the second half of life can be hugely liberating and richly rewarding. Shifting hormones and changes in life circumstances combine to create a greater sense of independence, a revitalized drive for achievement, and a bolder, more honest way of expressing one's needs and desires.

The authors of Saving the Best for Last are leading the charge as role models for "speaking your truth." Through the pages of this remarkable book, they speak their own truth with openness, honesty, and a big dose of humor along the way. The reader cannot help but be deeply touched by the intimacy with which these women share.

If you are looking for a great read with depth, insight, and more than a few belly laughs of self-recognition, you've got a winner with Saving the Best for Last.

Format: Paperback
Divided into clear chapters, each of which is followed by suggestions and activities prompting further reflections, this book will satisfy the solitary reader as well as the book club member. Of course the title alludes to Robert Browning's "Come, grow old along with me/The best is yet to be/The last of life/For which the first was made." And these authors convince us we can grow gracefully--not old--with a little planning, some honest assessments, and a sense of humor. Encouraging, non-judgmental, and blessed with experience and perspective, the authors exhort us to hitch our wagons to the stars, to learn from the past but to live in the present--the only way we can discover our own brave new worlds. A wonderful read.

Format: Paperback
In reading Joyce, Jean and Renee's "Saving the Best for Last," I laughed out loud, recognizing so many of my own myths about the aging process. What a relief to realize that there are so many gutsy and brave women over fifty who have turned life's challenges into grand opportunities through their amazing resourcefulness and creativity. These three passionate and daring women are a testimony to the possibilities of life after 50. I found myself identifying with each of these three wonderful women as I read all the fabulous chapters. This is a must read.

Reading this candid,honest,funny book is like being in a great conversation. You know how sometimes you meet someone new at a dinner party or go out for lunch and you find so much to talk about and so much commonality that by the time the meal is finished you feel you have found a true friend? Whom you've always known? Reading this book is like meeting three new good friends. You'll find much to identify with and much to admire. I just finished it and can't wait to get a group of my friends together to read it as a group.
