    • I'm listening to Portishead "Dummy" as I write this. Coolness!I completely fell in love with this book when I read this quote within the book from Edith Wharton in regards to her relationship with the philandering Morton Fulleton, and how she handled it, "ere is a constant of thought that seems so much closer than a kiss." Hello!Harriet Rubin, my new hero of sorts, talks directly about the power of harvesting the effects of age! A most powerful statement to hearrticularly for women. The Machieva [...]


    • Okay, what can I say about this book. It blew me away. Rubin's style of writing fits my train of thought so well that it doesn't even feel like reading. It doesn't even feel like conversation. I actually understand the phrase "reading a book like drinking water" - except, in this case, it's like drinking sweet, tender sherry from a cup perpetually filled to the brim.This is my first feminist literature; my first book on power, even, and I adored it so much I think this genre will be coveted and [...]


    • Not a light read. Need to give full concentration to this one. The author compares the beauty in aging, which applies to both male and female, but particularly in the sense of woman, to the Mona Lisa painting. Fascinating read. Reading a second time to take it all in. A woman can be memorable and timeless if she uses all she has learned. Things she would have been scorned for as a younger woman, are now seen as her signature, her coming of being, her timelessness. She becomes more of a woman as [...]


    • This is essentially a college textbook for aging, empowered women. Pre-requisites include feminist literature, art, current affairs and history. If you're not well-versed in the above, you'll likely have some content go over your head. Even more likely if you get the audio version (as I did) because words are chosen very specifically to illustrate ideas and it's harder to understand the exact intent if you can't stop and re-read as needed. Regardless, the entire book was un-interesting to me. Ma [...]


    • It is true. Older women experience loss. Our culture is fixated on youth and physical beauty. The author uses DaVinci's Mona Lisa as an example of aging with power and grace. She presents examples of real women in the arts and history who achieved power in maturity. Georgia O'Keefe and Eleanor of Aquitane are two. She presents stratagems to achieve the power. I am not sure I can ever regain the power of my youth, yet I learned a great deal about how our culture works. The language of this book w [...]


    • A different way to view women as we age love how she draws parallels from the painting to the modern day woman very clever


    • This book provides lots of food for thought for women interested in theories of age, sex and power. The best quote: "A woman will need to administer an occasional dose of stiletto." Amen to that.
