This book is a great guide to life after 40! I highly recommend it, and I know that other women will share my enthusiasm. It will leave readers feeling optimistic that their lives in their 40's, 50's, and beyond can be healthy, active, and fulfilling. Although the book is written particularly for women, there are many principles discussed which could apply to men as well. It is easy to read, but comprehensive - an ideal combination. I'm looking forward to sharing copies of the book with daughters, sisters, and other women in my life. ~ Hazel
This book is not just for women over 40; women under 40 would also benefit. I am a woman in my 30s and found the advice on nutrition and exercise to be very helpful in understanding my own body and the changes that are coming. I have read nutrition and health books in the past and get overwhelmed with all the information. This book lays out the information in a clear and concise manner that makes it easy to follow and understand. I would recommend this book to a woman in her 20s, 30s, 40s and so on. It's never too early or late to take control of your health! ~ Christine
I feel this very informative book was written for me. It answers questions about why my body is behaving the way it does and gives me solutions that are manageable and realistic. It was all a mystery to me. Now it isn't. ~ Laurie
I just finished reading this book and the information shared is extremely valuable. I really love the layout, it's easy to read and a great book to pack around in my purse for quick reference. Carla has included personal stories of individuals who have shared their experiences. It brings life to this book that helps with connecting. She's encouraging and real. ~ Donna
An abundance of great wellness information, suggestions, exercises, recipes and relatable stories. And best of all, even though it's geared for women over 40, we can all learn from & follow these guidelines. It will definitely stay on my bookshelf to use as a guide. ~ Sherry
As a health care professional and a woman nearing 50 I found this to be an excellent holistic approach to health and wellness for women , which could easily apply to men as well. In fact my husband enjoyed it as well! It covers the importance of nutrition and exercise, the effects of stress and the havoc of hormones on our bodies. It is told with truly inspiring anecdotes. I would highly recommend this book! ~Prem
