A self-help book which advises readers not to follow too much advice is by necessity a messy enterprise. Join a group, writes Levine, or quit a group. Take risks; alternatively "dare to be conservative." Travel, don't travel. Change jobs, or not. Don't be afraid to say no. Or yes. Above all, "go for it!" All those perky activities deemed suitable for people over a certain age – tango lessons, researching a family tree, outward bound courses – are listed with what I suppose is a helpful lack of scorn, or endorse-ment; meanwhile those with more ambition might consider becoming a movie star. If further evidence were needed of the paucity of "templates" for older women, there it is: the inevitable reference to Helen Mirren, three pages in.Add to cart
For years I was your basic dating nightmare. And then, under the influence of one magical woman my readers came to know as Orange Blossoms, I changed. Now I’m here to blow the lid off what you think you know about the way guys think. Because here’s the big secret I learned from being slayed by Blossoms: Women already have what it takes to get what they want from men; they just need to know how to use that power.Add to cart
With the assistance of Fox (co-author: Sexual Fitness, 2000), California-based therapist Brokaw proposes that embracing five core values—grace, connectedness, accomplishment, adventure and spirituality—gives women the strength (the “fortytude”) they need to succeed at this stage of life. To reach this conclusion, she interviewed a wide variety of women across the United States, ranging in age from late 30s to early 50s. After an upbeat introduction in which the author urges women to think of life’s challenges not as problems but as “sparkling moments,” she explains what is meant by each of the five core values and introduces women who personify them.Add to cart

Even if you don’t care for the Kardashian clan, there’s no denying that they aren’t everywhere you look. (As I write this, Kim is hosting a special on ABC. See? They’re everywhere.) Konfidential – part memoir, part self-help –has the sisters reflecting on their childhoods, talking about their relationships, and sharing their beauty and style tips. A seemingly ridiculous concept for a group of people who are basically famous for being famous. Yet it’s all relatively endearing coming from this bunch, and a must-read for any true Kardashian fan. ”We’re not actresses or performers. We are business women, sisters, a mother, a wife, entrepreneurs, fashion designers … And we didn’t set ou to be celebrities. We’re just living our lives, and our claim to recognizability is that we do it in front of the cameras, and people like watching it.” Well said, ladies.Add to cart
When Menopause: Bridging the Gap Between Natural and Conventional Medicine officially hit stores, a first printing of 5000 copies had already sold out and a second printing is going fast. Those figures are good news for the three Vermonters who collaborated on the 132-page project: Winooski resident Lorilee Schoenbeck, a naturopathic physician, Burlington OB-GYN Dr. Cheryl A. Gibson and Hinesburg psychiatrist M. Brooke Barss. They attribute their instant-bestseller status to last month’s abrupt halt of the Women’s Health Initiative, a major national study of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), after researchers detected an increased risk of breast cancer with long-term use. “The timing is unbelievable,” muses Gibson, a clinical associate professor at the University of Vermont’s College of Medicine. “What we address in the book is actually reflected in that study. So the results are a confirmation of our work, with real science behind it.”Add to cart
