100 Things I'm Not Going To Do Now That I'm 50
by Wendy Reid Crisp
ISBN 0-399-51936-X
Published April 2006 - Hardcover - 208 pages - $15.00

Rapidly approaching my own fiftieth birthday (August 2007), there are times when I think about both the brave and the dumb things I've done, and will continue to both do and not do.  This book offers some guidance as to things of this nature.  A few of the things author Wendy Reid Crisp won't be doing: showing cleavage - I agree; the sight of a saggy and wrinkly decolletage is frightning; Eat cheap ice cream; Drink "lite" beer.  Who are we kidding?  This is all-or-nothing territory, folks.  It's consoling to learn there are other "older" women out there who feel the same way you do.  It's greatly uplifting knowing you're not the only one rethinking your life.  This book would make a great bedside birthday gift to any lady approaching her fiftieth.
Conclusion - I smiled much and I enjoyed the book.
