“Every once in a while a book comes across your desk, and you just have to pick it up. This is one of them!”
Ann Curry (The Today Show)
“Barbara talked with nutritionists, physicians, skin and hair experts, fashion and fitness gurus, all to look at some of the best things women who are moving into their fifties can think about to make their lives better. What an opportunity!”
“Barbara writes (in a recent article), "fear will stop you from pursuing your dreams, and could cause you to give up and give in, keeping you a prisoner in your comfort zone." I completely agree. What are you afraid of? Let's be fearless together!”
“The definitive guide to living your best life after 50. The Best of Everything After 50 proves that hitting the half-century mark is not the end of life as you know it’s the beginning of a new adventure and Barbara is definitely the guide you want on your journey.”
“ . . . should be wrapped in brightly colored wrapping paper, tied up with a fashionable bow and handed to every woman on her fiftieth birthday (or even later!). BRAVO Barbara! No wonder you’re getting so much press!”
Feisty Side of Fifty

FeedTheBeauty.com (The Art of Aging)
“. . . savvy, smart perspectives on aging . . . a book that offers both practical and stylish information for all of us.
“…there isn’t one page in this book that you can afford to miss.”
"Barbara Hannah Grufferman created this go-to reference…each part helps set you on the right path, and doesn’t waste time in getting to the point. That’s one of the beauties of the book: no wasted words. It’s all about practical tips for style, make-up, sex, health, finance, and myriad other topics, and as it’s written by and for women over 50, it all makes sense.”
“The Best of Everything After 50, a handy tome to help fine-tune your heart, head, health, hair and more ..."
National Association of Baby Boomer Women
“Just over 300 pages, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AFTER 50 contains, Grufferman says, everything you need to know to be the best you can be. But just in case her manual misses one of your top questions, each chapter ends with a handy list of websites you can reference to get more information. I'd call this a ‘must read!’”
"After-50 Operating Instructions . . . a manual for getting through this decade with ease, grace, forethought and, of course, style."

One of the best parts of the book for me was Barbara's walk/run program, and I began that program a couple of months after I turned 50. I ran my first 5K eight days after I started her program, and I was hooked. I even ran a half marathon in December! I still run 4 -5 days a week, and while my runs are not 100% running, I've learned that just moving our bodies is so important....I wouldn't be where I am today without Barbara's advice and support!
One of the reasons I'm so surprised that I am still running is that I have severe fibromyalgia, and have had it for over 10 years. The first years I was basically bed-ridden, and couldn't do much of anything. Reading Barbara's book made me realize that I still had a lot of living left to do, and I slowly began to implement her workout program. The first day I ran, I couldn't go more than 10 seconds...and I'll never forget the day I ran for 60 minutes straight! I'm now hooked on running and look forward to my run days....getting the fresh air, sunshine and exercise ~ what could be better!
An additional bonus from this is that I have lost 30 pounds since I started running....without really changing my diet. I am more aware of what I eat, and how much I eat, but I have slowly lost the pounds. I feel so much better, love the compliments I'm getting, and don't feel like I'm 50! I still have to take medication for my fibromyalgia, and have days where I don't get much done, but Barbara's encouragement is contagious, and I just do the best I can.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to improve their life, their routine, learn beauty tips and workout advice ~ plus more. No one is going to do it for you ~ you still have to do the work. But the structure, the common sense, the wonderful advice that Barbara provides makes it easy....she truly walks her walk!!!
I can't thank Barbara enough for writing this book...it has changed my life. I refer back to it often, I have sticky notes everywhere, and I've either purchased or recommended it to many of my friends, who share my enthusiasm for the book. I even bought it on my Kindle so I could take it with me when I travel! I encourage everyone to buy this book and "friend" Barbara on Facebook ~ she is constantly writing new articles to empower women, and is a wonderful person. I am so grateful to have found her and her wonderful book. Thank you Barbara!!!
