SAM DAWSON DID NOT LIKE TURNING SIXTY. Body parts started heading south, and in the Down Dog yoga pose she could count the wrinkles around her ankles like the age rings of a tree. Curious to learn whether others her age felt the same, she interviewed seventy women.

Broad Appeal is a culmination of her candid conversations with these mature women and reveals that “over-the-hill” is actually a new and exciting frontier. Sam discovered that most women feel like she does: they don’t think, feel, or act old. They may see their reflection in the mirror and wonder “Who is that old lady?” but on the inside they feel the same as when they were young. Turns out, these women who burned their bras in the 1960s are not rocking chair grannies. Instead, they are revolutionizing old age. These everyday women share their wit and wisdom on such subjects as:

• What is great about being older than sixty

• Why physical changes are a laughing matter

• How to love large and ditch toxic people

• When to employ the “give-a-shit” factor and live life your way.

This entertaining compilation of quotes smashes the older-woman stereotype and provides evidence that there is a full, rich adventure yet to come. Get ready for a surprising and uplifting read that will inspire you to live a fun-filled, outrageous, and joyful life.
