I adore this book - I make a point of either giving copies (to friends) or recommending it (to acquaintances) as their "middle age" birthdays arrive. I'm so glad I read it right before 40 (and continue to review it) -- as I near 50, I see the wisdom in it more and more.

Practical and Empowering By Judy (Bennington, VT )
I just turned 40, so with this title I had to read this! I liked that the book focuses on what you can do rather than where you may have gone wrong. The author rightfully stresses that the decisions we make directly affect the quality of our lives, and encourages us to reevaluate our choices according to what we now know. Her advice is both useful and empowering. This is a great gift for anyone facing 40!
Fantastic book! By A Customer
This is a must-read book, especially if you're over 40 or dreading turning 40. Dr. Tessina helped me see that reaching this milestone age is actually an opportunity for a new beginning by viewing life from a new prospective. "The Ten Smartest Decisions a Woman Can Make after Forty" is a most intelligent guide and handbook for getting the most out of the second part of one's life because Tessina turns her attention to the special challenges and opportunities available to women over 40. She believes that by grabbing the reins and taking back control of you'll remove the fear that comes with passing forty and then on a new vista of freedom and opportunity for yourself. After reading this book over and over again, I can confirm that all women, whether you're just approaching 40, recently turned forty, or have been 39 for years, will find this practical and informative book filled with mapping options and outlining strategies for taking control of one's life. I can't wait to read her other books because this one is so terrific.
