I ordered this, received it and read it cover to cover within a day and a half. What a great book! Aimed at those ladies who have woken up one day and realised that they have entered the "twilight" zone of no longer being young and not yet being old but just starting to see those dreaded signs of ageing creeping in....

Helen Frith-Powell gives a very informative, witty and honest account of various anti-ageing products and treatments out there...some useful, some scary and some downright mad! In the name of journalism and for the greater good of woman-kind (yeah, right Helena!), she undergoes several treatments and procedures herself with varying degrees of success. I particularly enjoyed her account of those treatments where she knew her husband would kill her when he found out but went ahead and did them anyway!!

There were also some very insightful remarks made by Helena about attitudes to ageing, which I'm sure most women would relate to and a few cautionary tales about how easy it is to take things too far and when to stop.

Okay, so this book is aimed at middle/upper class ladies in their 40's who have money to spend but so what? In these dreary times of credit crunches, belt tightening and general doom and gloom, it was a most enjoyable, funny and refreshing read.

As a 43 lady myself, I take my hat off to Helena for not wanting to "give up" just because she's getting older. Let's make the best of ourselves every day, after all, you're a long time dead....

I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. It's a very well-researched guide to the full range of anti-ageing treatments on the market as the author travels the globe in her quest to bring the reader the best information in the fight against ageing. I found myself laughing out loud whilst reading this as it is highly amusing as well as being an uplifting read. The author's trademark warmth and humour run throughout this book and, like her earlier books, it is not to be missed.

As I read through the first few chapters of this book I became convinced that I had inadvertantly picked up a copy of the Daily Mail's Sunday magazine by mistake. This book is stuffed full of blatant advertising......product after product, beauty spa after beauty spa, cosmetic surgeon after cosmetic surgeon... and so on and so forth! Such advertising loses this book any credibility it might have had. A good piece of journalism could still have been made without naming names. Thank goodness mine was just a second hand copy or I would have felt a real fool for buying it.

Come on Helena - 'fess up! What did you really get for such shameless advertising including your own beauty/health website at the last page of the book??

I bought this book because I (still) enjoy dipping into Helen's Two Lipsticks and a Lover. I am a great fan of French-orientated beauty and fashion, and was secretly hoping that To Hell in High Heels would be a continuation of it.
This book follows Helen's journey into anti-ageing experiences across Europe, including painful massage, sheep foetal matter, and face creams. I feel it lacked the funny and interested vibe that Two Lipsticks had; probably because it was not as 'personal' a trawl through the author's life (yes, I am rather nosey in this respect!). This book was more of a series of reviews for anti-ageing techniques, and this type of writing sadly discounted the suthor's usual wit so present in her other books. If you are into the French side of women's health and beauty, get Two Lipsticks and a Lover and Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange, I found these more personable and informative.

If you're entering what I call 'the awkward years' (40 plus), this is the book for you. Helena Frith Powell relates her adventures in anti-ageing with great candor and humour. Guaranteed to make you feel better about your neck.
