Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
"The Best of Everything After 50" is a breezy read, even in the nitty-gritty chapters that deal with health issues, and money. Barbara Hannah Gufferman, with the help of many experts like fashion designer and entrepreneur Diane von Furstenberg, keeps you entertained while informing, and the book's layout, with its easy-on-the-eyes font size and use of bold print and inserts for the important things you want as a reference, adds to the accessibility of the information.
Favorite chapters include "You = What You Eat," with advice from Dr. Laura J. Lefkowitz and Dr. Stuart Fischer, "Face the Facts" on makeup, with beauty expert Laura Geller, and the delightful Carmindy from "What Not to Wear " fame, and is an area that can be a dangerous with women as they get older (no, adding more makeup doesn't do it!), and another potential minefield, fashion, with the sage advice of Ms. von Furstenberg. Great tips on hair too, which I have been using with great success, and which even though meant for long curly hair, works on my super short "do."
This is a book you can read through cover to cover, or use as needed, and refer to again and again. As we get older, the sharper and wiser we have to be, and Gufferman's book, which is not a list of "do's and don'ts," but rather "...guidelines, not rules," is a good one to have and learn from.
