More About the Author

Christine Webber wrote her 12th book, Too Young to Get Old, for female baby boomers, like herself, who want their remaining decades to be packed with incident.

Christine initially trained as a singer, but quickly realized she was no Maria Callas! Fortunately, she found she was better at television presenting and worked for Anglia TV for 12 years.

She left to become an agony aunt and health writer - and subsequently added to her 'portfolio' by training as a psychotherapist.

Her ambition is for life to go on pretty much as it is currently, for as long as possible!

Product Description

Review

A lively, honest, entertaining guide for today's mid to later life woman. Do you wish to enjoy life and face the passing years with style? Then the answers are here to inspire and help keep you on the "as young as you feel" bandwagon (CIVIL SERVICE PENSIONERS ALLIANCE, Mar 10)

Book Description

Baby Boomers were at the forefront of change in the Sixties and Seventies and will be a force to be reckoned with as they reach the age when, in the past, older people seemed to fade from view. Redefining ageing is the Baby Boomer's next big challenge!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for my mum but she raved about it so much that i read it afterwards, just to see what all the fuss was about. It's one of those books that I'm surprised no one had thought of writing before - My mum and her friends have no intention of having the kind of old age where they do quietly into some nursing home and sit staring at the TV and this is exactly what this book addresses. This book is mainly aimed at women aged 50+ and is teeming with advice about everything to do with getting older for people who want to maintain a healthy, active and exciting life . it's a really empowering read and incredibly well researched. Throughly recommend it.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. M. J. Leslie on 9 Feb 2010
Format: Paperback
For most ladies, once past the forty-year old mark, each decade and milestone bring with them a new angst: "Another Year Older Ha! Ha!"; "Another Wrinkle? Ha! HA! HA!" scream the birthday cards! Don't you just hate them! Are you overwhelmed by pessimistic thoughts of melting unnoticed into the grey, invisible mass of the silver brigade? Have you stopped bothering about your figure? Your hair? Your nails? Your clothes? Your underwear? That dratted whisker on your chin? Those blasted pelvic floor exercises? Because noone will notice? Do you feel a nobody now that you are not in full-time work, juggling six careers with running a house, as well as looking after a partner, grandchildren and elderly parents? Do you feel as if you have lost the plot and direction in life?
Are your posture and what is left of your self-esteem racing to see which will reach rock bottom first?
It doesn't have to be like that! Help is at hand!

Christine Webber is an experienced psychotherapist. This, her latest book is a riot of positive joy! A veritable mayhem of jubilation! Baby Boomers have always been at the forefront of change: they are not going to deviate now!
This is a sunny, exuberant, continuing revolution against all of the above - and more!

Meticulously researched, there is loads of really useful information, practical suggestions, ideas and tips from staying working to being healthy and feeling good about ourselves, keeping our marbles, relationships and, of course, a happy sex life.
Beautifully written in an upbeat, chatty, down-to-earth and gently humorous style, this well laid-out book is for all of us who feel we might be approaching the scrap heap.

If life begins at 40, then, with Christine Webber's help, 60 is certainly "the new 40"! We can plan to live our future as well as we lived our past - perhaps even better!
Now .. when will she write one for the chaps?

I love this book even though I am a little older than the babyboomers. A book to keep by the bed so you go to sleep feeling great.Joan Phillips

Like Janet and John-simplistic, waffling and boring.A disappointment because so much of the writing simply regurgitates the past in order to get the reader onside.

Even though I am in the target audience, being 56, I found this book a tad condescending and rather obvious. Anyone to whom the title appeals to will have already considered most of the issues raised. The book starts interestingly enough with the historical context, but I know all that, I was there! Then it just becomes like a series of pamphlets you may read at the library or waiting at the doctor's. Do voluntary work, eat healthily, keep regular.

I'm afraid I gave up reading it half-way through. I thought it was a bit of lazy magazine article journalism cobbled into a boring book. Disappointing.
