Shine On!: How To Grow Awesome Instead of Old by Claire Cook

About The Book:

"Claire Cook just gets it." -Meg Cabot

If you're a forty-to-forever woman who's interested in aging well, don't miss this motivating and inspiring book.

Join New York Times bestselling author Claire Cook on an inspirational journey that will help you shake off all those worries about getting older and embrace what can be the most vibrant, creative and empowering chapter of your life.
Claire wrote her first book in her minivan at 45. At 50, she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the adaptation of her novel, Must Love Dogs, starring Diane Lane and John Cusack. With another milestone birthday on the horizon, she was old enough to know the signs: "It was time to get my act together. Again."
Shine On: How To Grow Awesome Instead of Old speaks to midlife women everywhere and is filled with Claire's trademark humor, heart, honesty and encouragement.
"Cook's penchant for hitting the emotional sore spot and combining it with humor hits the mark." -New York Journal of Books

My Thoughts:

Here's a new year - generally a time when everyone thinks about starting over, starting new, starting ... well, something!  So it is the perfect time for author Claire Cook to debut her latest book, "Shine On!: How To Grow Awesome Instead of Old."

In her bubbly and optimistic style, Claire shares both personal stories and other's stories on how to take charge of your life, kick off the duldrums and become the fabulous, happy person who is somewhere inside you!  Following your dreams is an important part of Claire's outlook, and reinvention of your dreams, your hopes, and your life is made to look possible through her witty but wise advice.

Not only does Claire have success stories, she also includes diet and nutrition tips, as well as beauty and grooming tip. Personal appearance plays a big role in being happy, and Claire happily offers her personal experience as a role model for developing a new chapter in the reader's life. 

If you are looking for a spark to lit your new year's resolutions, then Claire Cook is the match you are looking for.  I highly recommend this new book. You're never too old to get started!
