Good, juicy, inspiring words and ways to live as a gloriously aging soul.” SARK, author and artist of Fabulous Friendship Festival
50 Ways to Leave Your 40s is a joyful, irreverent (and at the same time, very reverent), enthusiastic, and incredibly informative book. The authors present their suggestions for zestful and meaningful living in wonderfully inviting ways. I loved it!” Sue Patton Thoele, author of The Courage to Be Yourself and The Mindful Woman
So far, the statistics are convincing: everyone ages. How we age, however, is largely a choice. Sheila Key and Dr. Peggy Spencer serve up a delectable recipe for healthy aging that is both delicious and joyful.” Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
Top Customer Reviews
"Fifty Ways to Leave Your Forties" is one of those fun books that you can dip into a little bit here, a little bit there, and come away refreshed with some new ideas, thoughts, and motivation for the day. But then again, once you pick it up, you may not want to put it down. Sheila Key writes with a breezy, upbeat style that sparkles. And like most guys my age who shun medical advice, let alone treatment, I found the contributions to the book by Dr. Peggy Spencer to be not only valuable and reassuring, but delivered in an entertaining and non-preachy style ... almost makes me want to bump up the date of my next colonoscopy (almost).
I hope we'll see more from these two authors in the future; at least in another ten years, when the big six zero rolls around (now THAT's old!).

I highly recommend you buy this book and enjoy!
Well, that's not the case with this book. If you are lucky enough to hang out with Sheila Key sometime and you're like me, you will come away thinking, "geez, not only has she actually LIVED this book, but she is a heck of a lot of fun, too."
I know, because I've known Sheila for 20 years, and even though we haven't seen each other in about 10 years, I've looked forward every New Year's to receiving her cleverly homespun newsletters. Through them, I've watched her beautiful children grow and seen how Sheila's smiling face has somehow retained that youthful look of mischief mixed with excitement--no doubt related to some new and interesting pursuit.
Sheila knows a thing or two about nurturing wonder, mental and physical health, creative stimulation, and a juicy existence. So I for one was thrilled when she told me about her book project. Having been her editor when she wrote for a newspaper, I grew accustomed to Sheila always exceeding my expectations (which are exceedingly high). And, since I was just entering my 50s and really needing such a book, I knew Sheila would not let me down.
I've just started reading, and if I wait until I finish it to write a review, that could take some time. As I figured out after the first chapter, this isn't a book you skim through. It's one you dip into on a regular basis, drink in inspiration, and, thus recharged, go try something new--or remember that long-forgotten thing that brings you joy and lightens your step.
I'll be back when I have more to report.Read more ›
