~Why Fifty is the New Fifty
By Tracey Jackson
Much is written on young women, young mothers, and it is wonderful because it didn’t used to be that way. Women muddled through it all on their own, afraid to speak of their struggles.
Then it was about turning forty, and “The Change”. It was almost a shame or a curse, and again, women carried it on their own.
Now there is a book about and for women 50 and over. Tracey Jackson takes on aging with candid humour. She is both brave and honest in facing the realities of aging.
Tracey shows no fear in discussing health and sex as a woman enters her fifties. She talks about age in the workplace, and the effects of how that is perceived.
The proverbial empty nest, and the pros and cons of that stage of life are discussed with humour, candor and insight.
Tracey recalls how we got here, to age fifty, but also what to do now that we are here. She lays out fearless plans for a productive, full life going forward.
Both realistic and funny, Tracey gives thought to what it means to be fifty and the perceptions of aging.
Reading this book is like chatting with a girlfriend who totally gets what you are going through, at fifty and beyond.
