"Although I have yet to pee on a sofa...I could entirely relate to this wonderfully entertaining book...Suzanne captures the adventure of aging by showing all of us "mature" broads that although we might be growing older we don't have to necessarily grow up. It's fun, poignant and yes.....a dangerous stage of our life and this book shows us how to embrace these wonderful years."
