Synopsis

With characteristic humour, speaker and comedienne Joan Rivers reveals how to deal with the "lousy, crummy, disgusting, nauseating fact that sooner or later we all get older". Joan tells readers how to face reality, move on with their lives and be the best they can be at any age.

She can be heard nightly on her syndicated talk-radio show and appears regularly on shows such as Live with Regis & Kathy Lee, Politically Incorrect, and on QVC with her popular jewelry line. She lives in New York City. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Joan makes many of the same points she did in her last book, "Bouncing Back", but this one is not nearly as well done. In "Bouncing Back", Joan urged her readers to keep an optimistic attitude when disaster strikes. For instance, she said that it's okay for a woman to "wear a red dress to her husband's funeral as a sign of love". I could not agree more with that sentiment because grief is a highly personal process. What helps one person get thru a crisis may hurt another.
The book does make lots of valid points, such as the put-down of retirement communities. (How I wish my Dad had read this before he retired - he left the police force in 1993 because he was stressed - or so he thought. His health and life in general have declined since then.)
Unfortunately, Joan seems to have changed her mind to a certain extent in this book. Instead of advising older women to live life on their own terms, as she did with grieving people in Bouncing Back, she tells them that they can't wear a lot of styles of clothing any longer, because at their age, it will make them look silly. I say the hell with that attitude, an older person is entitled to be silly if he or she wants to. (BTW, I'll be 40 in Sept. I'm not looking forward to it, but I'm not going to give up things that I like either just because I've reached a certain age.)

Joan Rivers is a funny lady! If you are concerned about "aging", she makes you feel better about it! It's not the kind of book that you "cannot put down", but she comes right out and says the things that you know are happening when you reach a certain age and the way that she tells it, you have to smile and say "it's happening to her too!" I really think that you have to LIKE Joan Rivers--the book is her style. I wish I had her money to do some of the things that I cannot, but I enjoyed it. Made me laugh about age! I'm glad that I read it.

Reading "Don't Count the Candles. . ." is like having Joan Rivers talking directly to the reader--as an old (but fighting it every step of the way) friend. Her honest, shoot from the hip (liposuctioned, of course) game plan and advice is well-written and is done so with Joan's typical humor and wit. I'm buying a copy for all my friends and even my ex-mother-in-law! Go Joan! Keep up the great fight!
