This book was my introduction to Barbara Johnson. Wow, am I ever gonna have to make up for lost time! She's great! I literally laughed until I cried. What a mind! What a sense of humor. I could relate to everything she said. The Bible says that a merry heart doeth good like a medicine. Boy, did I ever get a large dose! I'm buying some extra copies for my "over 50" friends! What better gift than the gift of laughter?

I loved this book for its insightful use of humor and understanding of what we as women go thru as we age.
Laughing at oneself frees you to move on and Mrs. Johnson demostrates in her book this with aplomb.
I would recommend this book to even young women so that they will not dread the aging process as much but be able to accept the conditions as they come as a part of life.

This is one of Barbara's BEST books. Very encouraging and full of insights, not to mention the laughs. I have read all her books and this is especially encouraging to women in this transition time in their lives. This book is a must for woman in their prime years! I have purchased copies for my friends and they thought it was a hilarious book, Try it.

This book is "For Women Only" as the seal on the front cover shows. She is somewhere between Erma Bombeck and Fanny Flagg with her type of humor and sayings. This volume was written for those with a sense of humor but, if you've heard all that homespun advice, it's not so funny anymore.

None of the stuff women must live through during midlife crisis would be relevant to men, unless they are married to such creatures; they too have their own type of menopause. Chapter 7 is all about the causes of men, as she makes fun of the male personality. One I liked: "Youth looks ahead, Old age looks back, Middle age looks tired."

While the younger years may be the most fun, many grandmothers enjoy a more meaningful relationship with their adolescent grandchildren during the teenage years. These are times the rebels in the family show their true selves. They tend to turn for solace to loving grandparents during these turbulent times. Teens trust those who have given them unconditional love during their growing-up years and who are nonjudgemental.

Memory is a mental bank account for elders. In it, we deposit the treasures of our lives so that, in time of need, we can withdraw hope and courage. Remembering good memories can make us feel like mental millionaires. One of my heroes, General Douglas MacArthur once said, "Whatever your years, there is in every being's heart the love of wonder, the undaunted challenges of events, the unfailing childlike appetite for what comes next, and the joy of the game. You are as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

Barbara Johnson is a joy! Her sense of humor and writing style make this an exjoyable book. Unlike most humor writers, her style is clean and wholesome...no vulgarities. Recommended to every woman who is approaching or is in middle age or older, and is looking at peri-menopause and beyond with dread instead of anticipation. This book is uplifting.! There is some humor that is a bit "corny", but it's a laughable kind of corny. Definitely "thumbs up" for this work!

I read this book years ago and had given it away to a friend. I had forgotten until recently, found this and bought it again. She is (was) a marvelous writer. Highly recommend for women of all ages (perhaps over 40 best).

I found this book to be hilarious!! It is intended to be humorous and light-hearted, not a novel, so it will certainly be corny in places, as others described it. I was very disappointed to find out that Barbara Johnson passed away. Her gift of humor to lighten our hearts in difficult times will be truly missed. I would not even consider comparing her with other authors, as she has a unique style, all her own. When reading this book, I laughed so hard at times that my husband had to read the parts I wanted to share with him. At the time I read it, I was nowhere near menopause, just having some difficult female problems. A wonderful book for any female with any type of hormonal issues, and I highly recommend it. Laughter works like medicine.
