Throughout history, the image of "wisdom" is exclusively portrayed by men: God, Socrates, Confucius, Merlin, the aging college professor. Where are their female counterparts? The wisdom of older women is indisputable. Having lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, creating "nests" from which progeny fly out of to be productive members of society, and often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, older women have unique insights that help future generations not only to survive but also to thrive.

New York Times bestselling author of Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office, Dr. Lois Frankel, now honors and gives voice to the often marginalized and "invisible" older women in our society. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women over age seventy share wisdoms and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious, insightful and witty, and philosophical and practical. "When life gives you lemons," says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born 1941, "add vodka."

Beautifully photographed and illustrated, Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom is a precious record of our women's reflections and takeaways on lives well-lived that is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter.
