New York Times–bestselling author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office, Dr. Lois Frankel, now honors and gives voice to the often marginalized and “invisible” older women in our society. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women over age seventy share wisdoms and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious, insightful and witty, and philosophical and practical. “When life gives you lemons,” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born 1941, “add vodka.”
Beautifully photographed and illustrated, Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom is a precious record of our women’s reflections and takeaways on lives well-lived that is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter.

"It would be a 'Shame' if the humor and inspiration from these wise women was lost. Dr. Lois captured their spirits in a book to share with every woman in your family. This is truly a good read." Evelyn Champagne King, award winning R&B and disco singer,
