Summary

“Be who you always wanted to be when you grew up. What if experience always trumped youth? or if there was more appreciation for the style and confidence that comes with age? Embrace your inner greatness, no matter what your vintage, and fell fabulous from the inside out by taking inspiration from the superstars and regular Jo(sepin)es who’ve nailed it. The Power Age is a celebration of growing older for women not willing to sit back and become invisible. Revel in your personal style, maximise your health and wellbeing, love what you do and find your favourite ways to connect and give back. Featuring dozens of interviews and words of wisdom from women working their power age, including former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clarke, designer Leona Edmiston and food legend Maggie Beer, as well as exquisite illustrations and photographs of the most outstanding of older icons. The Power Age is your guide to navigating midlife and beyond with power and panache.”--Back cover.
