Are you a smart, single woman over 60 who still feels fabulous? Or do you feel well past your use-by-date? Are you a quitter, or do you deserve to live a life full of energy, inspiration and fulfilment? It's never too late to smell the roses. This book is a celebration of smart, single women over 60 and the many roles they play over their lifetime. But wait, by what criteria can you be deemed smart? That's easy ... you deem yourself as smart, no outside authority is needed, is it? Actually, for many baby boomers, outside authority is needed. Someone else's approval is necessary. That's a major reason for writing this book. I think we're grown up now; I believe we can grant approval to ourselves, to choose how to live our own lives, can't we? People often make harsh statements about older people, but if we are past our use-by-date, who sets that date; who pulls those strings? It turns out that control starts at the very beginning: a baby girl is born into a pink world with the roadmap of her life's journey already in place. This road map has been determined by her parents and by society and if she doesn't follow the route marked within she may pay a high and sometimes extremely harsh price. Isn't it time we broke free? After a long life of habitual behaviour and ingrained responses, can women over 60 make those necessary changes? I absolutely believe they can, but only if they want to, only if they believe they can. How to Make The Rest of Your Life The Best of Your Life gives smart, single women over 60 a roadmap to a destination of their own choosing. If you are sick of living on the Island of Lack: Lack of Courage, Lack of Confidence and Lack of Celebration, then this book is for you. As you work through the five-part formula 'From NOW to WOW', you'll see how you can live a happier, healthier life. Over 60 STILL Fabulous? Yes! What we now hold in our head and our heart is more valuable than youth.

It was very easy to digest, the author Victoria broke down the main principles in a way that I could understand and visualise for myself in my own life therefore implement.
This is a not a book to be read only to be put back on the shelf, you need to absorb, take notes and implement. As with everything that has to do with self improvement and enhancing our quality of life, it requires a certain amount of organised dedication, Victoria reflects into her own experiences well and shares in a manner we can enjoy.
Victoria offers the reward as: once you follow through on that dedication, it will work for you too. You will start creating for yourself, the opportunities that will allow you to grow in the direction of your choosing, through deliberate actions.
This book took me another step towards my own personal goals, it helped me reflect on my own ways, mistakes and choices.
Again, this book gave some invaluable tools with which I can move forward.
I tip my hat to you, Victoria – this book really struck a chord with me. Thank you.
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.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is thinking seriously about how to make the rest of their life, the best of their life, or anyone who feels that they are “over the hill”, “a burden to society” “just waiting to die” whatever-- any of the other predominant misconceptions so common in most developed Nations, or to anyone who just wants a good read, and to laugh at themselves and the human condition in general.
Our world is in the process of major changes which will lead ultimately to a better world, as humanity passes out of this current state of crisis in which we seem hell-bent on destroying our planet and anyone or anything that gets in the way of our personal or collective interests. Our world is dominated by big business and its ruthless self interests, but it is changing and a better world is in sight.
There are people all around the world with integrity, vision, belief in humanity and the drive and determination to do something about it - to support and promote the changes humanity needs to make to get back on track, to realise that we are all one, that we all share the same fundamental vision for our lives. I believe that Victoria is one of those people and that her book will provide a ray of enlightenment in the lives of all who read it.
