Colette Dowling offers a gift to every woman edging up to, at, or just beyond age fifty - the gift of meeting the "Red Hot Mamas," women who have arrived at midlife to find that they're getting another chance. Listen to their stories - of moving beyond fears of aging and changing, of learning to steer their own course and discovering a new sense of freedom and power.Funny and poignant, savvy and intimately personal, Red Hot Mamas doesn't skirt the issues. Colette Dowling's account of her own midlife transition is bracingly honest about the challenges of growing older as a woman in our society - from the politics of appearance to the need to come to grips, once and for all, with money issues, and the family pressures created by older parents and departing children. But whether she's discussing the latest scientific debates over hormone replacement, the risks of career change at fifty, or strategies for midlife sexual satisfaction, she gives readers the information they need to make life-changing decisions - and to comfort the really big questions: What is the most exciting and fruitful way I can make use of the next thirty or forty years? Where, how, and in whose company shall I spend them? and How can I best protect my options and harness my energy?show more
