Frances Weaver is a regular enrichment lecturer on Crystal Cruises around the world and appears monthly as Seniors Editor on NBC's Today.From Library Journal:
Both of these titles put a positive spin on growing older and offer encouragement to the over-50 crowd. Psychotherapist Gerike presents good practical advice about health, exercise, sex, and more, and she offers a particularly helpful chapter on ten ways to combat age discrimination. However, the format of little text and many cartoon drawings and occasional humor?which some readers may feel talks down to its audience?might detract from the overall power of the message. NPR commentator Weaver (The Girls With the Grandmother Faces, Hyperion, 1996) takes a more personal approach. A few early chapters describe her battle with alcoholism and her path to sobriety. Then Weaver talks about how returning to school, traveling, and writing helped her adjust to widowhood and continue to grow in the second half of her life. A chapter-long poem relates her adventures on a whirlwind book tour. Although both books offer valuable information, Gerike's book is a little too slim to recommend for most library collections; Weaver's book will be popular especially where her earlier book is doing well.?Marguerite Mroz, Baltimore Cty.
