Book Description

10 May 2007
Built loosely on her much-loved Guardian column - "Just 70" - "The View from Here" is Bakewell's discerning and heartwarming account of life at 70 and beyond. A household name and a popular radio and TV broadcaster, Bakewell is the ideal ambassador for challenging what being 70 can mean for women today. All of life, including the taboos of old age, are here - work, family, love, sex, body and death - written about with humour, warmth, and Bakewell's characteristic verve and intelligence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertainment 1 May 2009
By KWB
Format:Hardcover
I read Joan Bakewell`s book and was pleasantly surprised by the way it was written and the content of the book. Joan writes about her life in a down to earth, funny and entertaining way. I would recommend this book to anyone of her generation or a little younger. Great reminiscences and reminders of happenings in our younger days! Can`t wait for her next book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok. 16 Jan 2014
By Ardnas
Format:Audio Cassette|Verified Purchase
The quality of the cassette covers was not great in that it had labels stuck all over them and was obviously previously from a library. Not very impressed as I had to remove the labels and adhesive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too few ideas 1 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm afraid I don't think Joan Bakewell has a very good mind; overuse of the lazy journalistic "we" throughout and basically just the one idea re-stated again and again.
