In this inspiring and candid book, Jane Fonda shares her wisdom on making the most of your life
Jane Fonda is an Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress and highly successful producer. She revolutionised the fitness industry with the Jane Fonda Workout in 1982 and has sold more than 17 million copies of her fitness-focused books, videos and recordings. She is an active advocate on environmental issues, human rights and the empowerment of women, and is the founder of both the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention and the Jane Fonda Center at Emory University. She is the author of the bestselling My Life So Far.
Fonda's (My Life So Far) latest book on aging is a pleasant departure from the usual celebrity publications. She candidly talks about turning 70 and offers readers a step-by-step guide to create a "life review" to help plan for the road ahead. Her advice for successfully aging in "Act III" of life doesn't differ from the usual stuff seen on TV shows and in magazines: get enough sleep, don't abuse alcohol, exercise regularly, etc. Her most insightful contribution is to challenge women to break stereotypes of aging, to contribute to society financially, and to share the kinds of experiences that only seniors can give. It's an upbeat, informative book that any female boomer would enjoy reading. [See Prepub Alert, 3/7/11.] (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
