⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A Must Read for Anyone over 50 or Loves Someone over 50

June 1, 2023

A MUST READ! After a few hours of working in my yard, I was exhausted. That really frustrated me because I should have been able to do a LOT more. After all, I used to do 8 hours a day of yard work. I was complaining about it to a friend, and she recommended that I read Roden’s book. At first, I was taken aback by a book about women and aging written by a man. My friend said, “Just read it. And look at his credentials.” So I did. I was so impressed by Roden’s methods and extent of research, his beautiful and straight-forward writing, and his obvious care and understanding. I strongly recommend this to everyone. It truly changed the way I look at how my body and mind have changed over the years and to appreciate this new stage in my life.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It’s an incredible resource….preparing future stages of aging.

February 18, 2023

The information in Roden’s book offers important and necessary preparations for the future. My husband and I have carefully addressed the importance of maintaining our health and well-being but have neglected preparing our home to accommodate an aging couple . It’s easy to deny that our good health may not last forever.
I am honored to be mentioned in this book and grateful for Roden’s interest in my story.
