From a New York Times–bestselling author comes this “book to share with every woman in your family” honoring the wisdom and spirit of older women (Evelyn “Champagne” King). These women have lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, and creating nests out of which children fly to be productive members of society. Often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, women have unique insights that can help future generations not merely survive, but thrive. In Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom, Dr. Lois Frankel gives center stage to these wise women. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women aged seventy and older share thoughts and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious; insightful and witty; philosophical and practical: “When life gives you lemons,” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born in 1941, “add vodka.” This book, with lovely illustrations by Lisa Graves, is an important record of women’s reflections on lives well lived. It is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter. “I love this book! Wisdom and wit worth remembering and sharing.” —Josh Berman, creator and executive producer, Drop Dead Diva and CSI “It would be a shame if the humor and inspiration from these wise women was lost. Dr. Lois captured their spirits . . . This is truly a good read.” —Evelyn “Champagne” King “It’s about time for a book like this. For too long the wisdom of older women has gone unnoticed, unappreciated, and undervalued . . . Sure to put a smile on your face and the faces of the women you share it with.” —Rita Coolidge

Throughout history, the image of “wisdom” is exclusively portrayed by men: God, Socrates, Confucius, Merlin, the aging college professor. Where are their female counterparts? The wisdom of older women is indisputable. Having lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, creating “nests” from which progeny fly out of to be productive members of society, and often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, older women have unique insights that help future generations not only to survive but also to thrive. New York Times–bestselling author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office, Dr. Lois Frankel, now honors and gives voice to the often marginalized and “invisible” older women in our society. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women over age seventy share wisdoms and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious, insightful and witty, and philosophical and practical. “When life gives you lemons,” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born 1941, “add vodka.” Beautifully photographed and illustrated, Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom is a precious record of our women’s reflections and takeaways on lives well-lived that is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter.
