Although actor-author (Free to Be . . . You and Me, plus five others) Thomas has discovered 60 women who have changed their lives thanks to Thomas’ HuffPost-linked website, each story is a joy to read but also an inspiration. Thomas edits tales ranging from a philanthropist’s to a dance-studio owner’s, including cutting-edge careers, such as running canine boardinghouses. Real names, real facts are de rigueur; meet Jamie James, inventor of the Cellfolio; Robina, who opens a Curves Peligrosas store for curvy bathers in a Mexican resort; and Lee Gale, who discovered acting late . . . and is doing so at 71 years of age in Los Angeles. All stories are written in a warm third-person voice, each finishing with a you go, girl inspiration. Pick it up; start any chapter. Thomas has captured a marvelous way to jump-start dreams, at any age. --Barbara Jacobs

themselves and their lives, many husbands were involved in the process. It is a hopeful book
which offers a positive spin on using opportunity and ingenuity to live up to ones dreams and potentials.
What was of particular value to me was that the accounts included people of all ages, and socio-economic backgrounds.
Basically the theme is one of creation and determination. The true message is to embrace, rather than fear change and growth.
Once again Marlo Thomas has shared something life enriching with her followers.
