The synopsis calls this book ‘Wise, funny, and practical’. After reading it, I would call it ‘One woman’s memoirs and ponderings on aging’.
I enjoyed reading about the author’s memories, family, and her good and bad experiences. Some of her anecdotes may provide readers with information they can apply to their own daily lives, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call this book a practical guide to aging.
Taken as a charming, light read about one woman’s relationship with her own aging process, it’s a little treasure, and I do recommend it.
My thanks to author Margareta Magnusson, Scribner, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
