Queen of Your Own Life: The Grown-up Woman's Guide to Claiming Happiness and Getting the Life You Deserve

Queen of Your Own Life: The Grown-Up Woman's Guide to Claiming Happiness and Getting the Life You Deserve - Kathy Kinney, Cindy Ratzlaff Publicist Cindy Ratzlaff and actor Kathy Kinney (Mimi, from "The Drew Carey Show") have put together an entertaining little book that is more than just a self-help title. Drawing on their 30-year friendship, the two present advice on reclaiming one's life and wrap it in anecdotes from their own history to show how they reached their conclusions.This book is aimed at women over the age of 40. Kinney and Ratzlaff maintain (and accurately so) that this is the age group that is invisible in our society today. Instead of lamenting the changes of body and spirit that aging bring to all of us, Kinney and Ratzlaff provide suggestions for celebration. The book is peppered with inspiring aphorisms from the likes of Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Anais Nin and other female authors.This is a quick read, and quite entertaining. The advice for women "of a certain age" will help elevate the self-esteem of any reader. Highly recommended.
