A funny, fearless, no-holds-barred look at aging--hormone replacement therapy, online dating, eye lifts, and all. As she approached her fiftieth birthday, Tracey Jackson found herself bombarded--at the gym, at parties, in conversations with friends--by a catchphrase on everyone's lips: "Fifty is the new thirty." The new aphorism had apparently bloomed out of a collective sense of denial, masking the true fears of a generation unwilling to relinquish their youth. With a comedy writer's training and a screenwriter's eye for detail, Jackson skewers the myth in a hilarious and ultimately practical appraisal of what middle age really means today. Turning fifty is a wake-up call--but one that can be greeted with a plan.--From publisher description.

...starkly honest, with enough humour to give one HOPE of being a fifty-something survivor :)
