The Best of Everything After 50

The Best of Everything After 50: The Experts’ Guide to Style, Sex, Health, Money and More is the essential handbook to being a healthy and strong woman over 50. It combines practical girlfriend-to-girlfriend advice from me, with professional expertise from leading authorities in women’s health, nutrition, exercise, makeup, hair, fashion, finance, organization and sex, such as:

  • Diane von Furstenberg on smart fashion choices
  • Frederic Fekkai on fabulous hair at any age
  • Dr. Patricia Wexler on the most effective skin program
  • David Kirsch on exercise that really works
  • Julie Morgenstern on organizing your life to get ready for what’s next
  • Jane Bryant Quinn on financial concerns
  • Laura Geller on fast and easy makeup tips
  • Top Doctors from New York University on key health checks

. . . and many others.

I got their advice and directions on what to eat, how to work out, what to wear, how to apply makeup, what the key health checks are, and much more. I adopted their programs and prescriptions, and got life-changing results. With a handy format and “checklist” style, The Best of Everything After 50 makes high-priced advice accessible to any woman, no matter where she lives.

From The Best of Everything After 50: The Experts’ Guide to Style, Sex, Health, Money and More:


Knowledge is power, right? So, I went on a quest to find the answers. I searched the internet, bookstores, and magazines, but it soon turned into information overload. Everybody had an opinion—and most of them conflicted with each other. Then, one day, I realized that I didn’t want lots of information; I wanted the best information—bottom line—about what I needed to know now about my skin, hair, makeup, health, sex, clothes, money, and working out.

So I decided to search out the top experts in all of these fields—and more—and ask them my questions, put myself in their hands, do their programs (to make sure they really worked), and then share everything I learned with all my women friends.

The result is this book.
