I searched on-line for Gloria Steinem's Doing 60 and 70 book however it is not listed in the OPL catalogue. Thanks to luvgoodreads for the suggestion anyway!

There's nothing that qualifies this woman to write this book except for her age and her name. It is so poorly written that it made my skin crawl with its triteness. She name drops - how hot she and Ted Kennedy were for each other at a state dinner and how Pierre was none too pleased (gosh!), and if I was one of her children or grandchildren, I'd be cringing. She actually thanks her editor (in her acknowledgments) for "diligently editing my seemingly endless stream of words and researching the themes in the book with insight and respect". To me, that means she didn't even do her own research! As another reader commented, there is only one reason this woman has kept the surname "Trudeau" - exploitation. After all, she remarried - and stayed married - for over twice as long as she was to the PM and had more children with him, so why else remain a Trudeau? If you want a good read about growing older, get Gloria Steinem's "Doing Sixty & Seventy".

Margaret Trudeau's previous book "Changing my mind," was a bestseller; this one may not be because it talks specifically about and to one group of people and that is those in their third age. This is a down-to-earth account of her own and her friends' experiences as Seniors. She has talked to experts in the fields and gives good pointers that will be of use to other seniors and their families. The fact that she was a First Lady of Canada may not add credibility to the views but certainly makes for interesting reading. A book well worth reading.

If you are a woman over 50, then this is a very refreshing read - it breaks the silence of us older women, who are now invisible and subject to ageism. She is very down to earth, and celebrates life very realistically at age 65. Though at times the book was a bit tedious, she certainly is still a person of interest. I don't agree with her use of pot, but she is still part flower child - which is not an altogether bad thing. You won't find too much discussion about her past relationships or mental problems which is a relief in many ways.
