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.Read more ›
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!
