Balanced somewhere between a memoir and a how-to, AMAZING greys is a uniquely refreshing and candid look at midlife for those unwilling to become feeble old women with boobs in their laps, dreams on the shelf, and Memory Lane their only destination.
As a leading edge boomer, Maggie uses her own journey through midlife to shatter stereotypes about ageing. At the core of her message, she exposes the fears and anxieties that often haunt maturing women and reveals how to mindfully navigate the turbulence with wisdom, perspective and practise. She encourages women to relish their roles as Amazing Greys and not waste time and energy trying to hang on to the past.
For women who are entertaining the possibility of life without hair dye, Maggie shares her story of going grey. She outlines several strategies to take you from coloured to natural and includes photos and stories of women who have taken the plunge.
Hers is not an anti-ageing message. This book is a little about going grey and a lot about ageing mindfully and joyously (with a healthy dose of kicking and screaming) from an everyday woman s perspective.
