"Cook, the author of eleven novels, has turned to nonfiction for Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way). It's a thought-provoking, inspiring book. If you've thought about changing your career and following your passion, Cook's book just might provide the needed push." -Lesa's Book Critiques
"Never Too Late is the perfect book for readers who love Claire Cook's books and wonder how she got to be such a successful author. But the real purpose and accomplishment of the book is the inspiration it provides and the fascinating and amazingly helpful strategies and methods she presents for any women ("and a few good men") who really want to achieve what they've only dreamed of. The book is about change and opportunity - and how to grab them." -Pamela Kramer, National Book Reviewer, Examiner.com
"I have been a big fan of Claire Cook and her fun books for a while now, so I was excited to grab my copy of her first nonfiction book. Claire has such a friendly and easy manner, and after reading this book I feel like I have been sitting in the kitchen chatting with a good friend and learning from her. I love the idea of reinvention and Claire does it better than anyone. If you need a personal cheerleader to help you along your road to reinvention, then I highly recommend this book." -Looking on the Sunnyside

Fortunately, I ignored this advice and found my own way, partially thanks to a paragraph I read by Sara Paretsky. But had I had Claire Cook's first nonfiction book IT''S NEVER TOO LATE, I would never have had to plunk down $15 at the Dartmouth Club. I would have been off and running.
Claire's book is exactly what every middle-aged woman who has yet to fulfill her life dream needs. It's a blueprint, a map with chatty, practical, useful tips on how to achieve what you've always wanted to achieve. And it's from someone who's done it herself in her 40s and 50s.
(It also has a lot of gossip about the business.)
I breezed through half of it last night and woke up inspired (2 pages a day/do not fall prey to "Shiny Object" syndrome.) I love Claire's voice, her optimism, her stories! Even though I've heard some of them before on panels, etc., they are classics. I cannot recommend this book enough. All of us deserve to live to our full potential - and we don't have to wait until our children are grown. If you've always wanted to write, to create, to be what you've wanted to be - GET THIS!!!!
Fans of Claire Cook's eleven novels will tell you what is just so great about her writing. Her books are funny, smart, sometimes feature a dog, and always make you think. Never Too Late, her first dive into the non-fiction world, is written with the same witty prose, while giving the reader a good, motivational kick in the butt. Subtitled "Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way)," the book serves as a guide to help readers push themselves into whatever that next stage in life is, providing insight and concrete next steps for getting there. Cook weaves in her own reinvention story--writing her first novel in a minivan at 45, walking the red carpet at 50 for the film premiere of Must Love Dogs--while encouraging readers to go after their own goals. She offers practical, tangible advice on topics like building your platform and making the most of social media, while also speaking to the heart, reminding us that dreams don't have expiration dates.
What perhaps resonates most of all is that from page one, we feel that we know Claire Cook. She's a sister, aunt, confidante or friend. She understands the roadblocks that might get in the way of our reinvention journeys--fear of failure, fear of success, not knowing where to begin--and acknowledges that these feelings are normal. Through her own stories and the stories of those she's met along the way, she reminds us that although these roadblocks may cause slight detours, they shouldn't stop us from reaching our destinations. Her writing exudes positivity, kindness and encouragement. She leaves us feeling motivated, and not wanting to say goodbye to our coach. (And thanks to Twitter, Facebook and clairecook.com, we don't have to!)
To fellow writers, I cannot recommend this book highly enough, as the advice will really hit home and be beyond beneficial. To anyone else, it is still an incredibly important read--the pointers and inspiration can be applied to any field, dream, or crossroads in life. It is the kind of book you will return to again and again, and Claire Cook is the kind of writer you will only want more from. If you can honestly say that you've never stopped and wondered if you're doing everything you want with your life, this book might not be for you, because unicorns and figments, as far as I know, can't read. Everyone else? Go out and enjoy Never Too Late.
:::::Putting down my megaphone::::
If you need a boost get that change you need in your life going I cannot recommend this book enough. Thank you, Claire, for being so generous with your words of wisdom. I will definitely refer to this book again and again when I feel like giving up and need that extra push.
