When a friend highly recommended this book to me, I was a bit surprised (After all it’s all about how women over 60 can learn how to get a new lease of life, to completely change their view of the rest of their life for the better – but I am a man). But as my personal mission is fundamentally about doing the same thing for older men, maybe I could get some hints for my own project?

What I found: The book is beautifully presented and divided into short readable and amusingly titled chapters. It quickly became apparent that Victoria’s book is not only a fantastic step by step guide to a new life for women over 60, but would be an equally useful tool for women of any age (let’s face it, we all need a step by step guide to help us through life, and it seems to me the earlier we get hold of it and start to use it, the better our lives will be.), and best of all, it has lots of valuable tips and advice that are equally useful for men (me included).

My only problem was that once I started reading it, I could not put it down. Victoria has a really clever writing style, amusing, easy to read and infectious, and the knowledge she has gained from her lifetime of training people (including how to use firearms in the Australian army!) and many years more recently helping older women to see their lives in a different perspective, has given her vast knowledge and insight into the human psyche, and that has been shared in this book in a way that is easy to read and absorb.

We've all heard, that "When the student is ready the teacher appears." Well I didn't know how ready I was. This book is amazing. I was introduced to Victoria Rose, the author of 'How to make the Rest of Your Life The Best of Your Life' at a beachside Cafe in Melbourne while on holidays in 2014. Immediately I felt comfortable, she has that knack of making others feel relaxed around her. I thumbed through the book and chatted away about how it all came about etc. After coffee I purchased the book and when I went home I started reading it immediately. All I can say, is WOW! I must admit, I did find it hard to put down. I kept repeating to the little small voice within, 'The housework can wait' as this book is more important, life-changing. Everything fitted for me as if Victoria was speaking to me only. I was a magnet to this feast of information that was in black and white in front of me.Victoria has a wonderful way of imparting her knowledge on the pages. It is easy to read and follow and her vibrant personality shines through. All I can say is 'What a woman.' This book will help and inspire any woman. There is no need to wait until you are 60 years of age. I wish I had read this in my late 20's or early 30's. I loved the content and the way I felt after I finished reading it. The only way for me is up. Life is different now. I fill my days with meaning and live in the moment. The present moment is all there is. I hadn't met Victoria before but today I salute her for getting this book out there.

If it were possible to read this book in one sitting, I would but it's not like that with this book. I take it with me everywhere I go and read a little more each time so that the information has time to integrate. It's full of amazing wisdom which comes to you in a firm but loving way. This is Victoria's style of writing, to teach, and I love it! The lessons are invaluable for women of all ages really and most importantly for us baby boomers who lack the self love we are so entitled to. If you didn't have the steps to fully make the rest of your life the best of your life, you have now! Grab a copy for yourself and all the other beautiful women in your life who could do with some 'tough love' and let Victoria lead them and you, in a way that is considerate, self respecting and valuable, especially in today's world where we can be made to feel so alienated, alone and invisible. Say YES! to YOU....we can all use some direction in this stage of life. This book has that and more.

I read about Victoria's book one day in the internet. I visited her website and decided to contact her to ask if she was interested in recording a show for my podcast 'Downsize with Style'. I am an author myself and we exchanged our books. I found it very interesting that there are many similarities in our approaches. Being a very organised person I loved the way how she structured the book in 5 parts and added action steps at the end of each part. It is an easy-to-follow process similar to my 5-step process to downsizing your home with style. Without action nothing will change. One of my favourite quotes is on page 215: "Many did not realise, until the end, that happiness is a choice..." Great bedside read for a daily dose of encouragement.

I bought Victoria Rose book ‘How to Make The Rest of Your Life The Best of Your Life’ for my mother.
As you do with books I started to flick thought it, then started to read it. Victoria’s book was well written, interesting and informative on many levels:
I started to see my mother in a different light, with a lot less judgement and a better understanding of her.
For me chapter 9 was a winner, Victoria talks about peoples changing attitudes towards us, and the feeling this change has to do with us, this hit home with me. Victoria then goes on to point out that not everything is ‘about me’ that we all have things going on in our lives and often change in behaviour may be more to do with themselves, and ‘the reason we don’t know why, is we don’t actually ask’. For me this realisation was very liberating, as I now know I'm perfect (only jokey). I now view situations with an open mind, stop taking things
personally, and start up conversations.
I must give mum her book!
Thanks Victoria
