A DELIGHTFUL LITTLE BOOK ON AGING

All around us older women flourish in industry, entertainment and politics. Do they know something that we don’t, or are they just, they’re trying to figure it out, too?  So many of us feel in our hearts and minds that we are still twenty-something young women who can take on the world. But every day, we have to rise above the creaky joints and achy knees just to move through the world with a modicum of grace.  Yet we do rise, because it’s a privilege to grow old, and every single day is a gift. This book is an invitation to celebrate whatever age you are with a sense of joy and purpose and a spirit of gratitude.

REVIEWS

FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS:

This well-designed book presents these lessons as a series of thoughts and vignettes from the author’s life, moments that stand out and memories that have come to signify key aspects of aging for her. “Aging invites us to grow into a deeper beauty,” she writes, “it’s no longer the smile on our face as much as it is the expression in our heart.” Raffelock’s book will be a much-needed boost to readers of all ages.  

FROM  KELLY BROGAN MD, AUTHOR OF THE NYT BESTSELLER A MIND OF YOUR OWN:

“Where are the elders? The wise women, the crones, the guardians of truth here to gently, lovingly, and playfully guide us towards the fulfillment of our collective destiny? It turns out that they are right here, in our midst, and Stephanie Raffelock is showcasing the reclamation of aging as a moment of becoming, no longer a dreaded withering into insignificance. A Delightful Little Book on Aging lays down new and beautiful tracks for the journey into our richest, deepest, and wildest years.”  

FROM FREDERIC LUSKIN, PH.D., CO-FOUNDER, THE STANFORD FORGIVENESS PROJECT:

“This little book by Stephanie Raffelock unfolds gently. Like aging, it is raw and funny and quirky.  It is not 5 easy steps but real stories and wisdom.  It is resilience in action, acknowledging losses and unwanted changes of aging with moxie, humor and grit.”  

FROM JONNY BOWDEN, BOARD-CERTIFIED NUTRITIONIST & BEST-SELLING AUTHOR
OF 
LIVING LOW CARB THE 150 HEALTHIEST FOODS ON EARTH:

“Deeply compassionate, eminently readable, and filled with timeless wisdom and unbridled joy. Stephanie Raffelock will be your favorite new discovery. You’re welcome.” 

FROM ANDREA F. POLARD, AUTHOR OF A UNIFIED THEORY OF HAPPINESS:

“Filled with authentic stories and abundant insights, “A Delightful Little Book on Aging” is a heart-warming companion for anybody who wishes to age without sugar-coating the losses while continuing to live life with an open spirit.  Stephanie Raffelock makes me look forward to my own golden years. Well done!”   

FROM CARPE DIEM CHRONICLES:

“Aptly titled, A Delightful Little Book on Aging lays out a joyful, thoughtful, easily applicable approach to handling the advancing years with dignity, grace, and gratitude. Ms. Raffelock wrote with so much wisdom, authority, and charm, I found myself highlighting numerous passages that resonated with me. By the time I finished reading, nearly the entire inside of the book was covered in light green color (I chose a highlighter that matched the cover) .”
