About this title


"This is the book that every woman should read." Eleanor Lambert

"No woman enjoys life more than Jeanette Longoria and that joy comes through in every chapter of her sparkling book." Elsa Klensch

"The vision and myth of Aphrodite is a surefire replacement for feminine hormones." Mary McFadden

From Marie Brenner, author of "Great Dames: What I Learned from Older Women", is "a preview of Jeanette at the beginning of her journey to discover her inner Aphrodite. Now Jeanette Jaffe Longoria tells the secrets of her enduring sex appeal and joie de vivre. Here are her Aphrodite lessons, a case study of how a 76 year old mother of seven, grandmother of thirteen, world traveler, hostess and confidante of princes and potentates, has stayed in the game. Her zest inspires."

About the Author:

At just two years old, Jeanette Longoria decided that her passion in life was to dance, whirling and twirling in the midst of music and beauty. We can only dream of dancing at Julliard to the music that we hear in our hearts. However, that did not happen for Jeanette.

This time she would follow her passion. In her book, Aphrodite And Me: Discover Beauty And Romance At Any Age, Jeanette Longoria passes on some of the secrets that she learned from this famous mythical character. These are secrets that she feels comfortable sharing because she believes, as do many others, that Aphrodite was not a myth at all, but a wonderful, loving person. Empires have a way of reducing intelligent, beautiful women to nothing more than art figures or mythical characters, Jeanette claims, but the beauty of love is ethereal and timeless. Inspired by the free spirit and mystery of the exquisite Aphrodite, as well as by the passion of many great women before her, Jeanette Lo
