From New York Times–bestselling author: “A book to share with every woman in your family” honoring the wisdom and spirit of older women (Evelyn Champagne King). These women have lived decades raising children, caring for husbands, and creating nests out of which children fly to be productive members of society. Often being forced to observe more than participate in the events around them, they have unique insights that can help future generations not merely survive, but thrive. In Ageless Women, Timeless Wisdom, Dr. Lois Frankel gives center stage to these wise women. From Los Angeles, California, to Shanghai, China, women aged seventy and older share thoughts and stories that are heartwarming and hilarious; insightful and witty; philosophical and practical: “When life gives you lemons,” says Jo-Ann Mercurio, born in 1941, “add vodka.” This book, with lovely illustrations by Lisa Graves, is an important record of women’s reflections on lives well lived. It is sure to be passed from grandmother to daughter to granddaughter. “I love this book! Wisdom and wit worth remembering and sharing.” —Josh Berman, creator and executive producer, Drop Dead Diva and CSI “It would be a shame if the humor and inspiration from these wise women was lost. Dr. Lois captured their spirits . . . This is truly a good read.” —Evelyn Champagne King “It’s about time for a book like this. For too long the wisdom of older women has gone unnoticed, unappreciated, and undervalued . . . Sure to put a smile on your face and the faces of the women you share it with.” —Rita Coolidge

Discover your ability to be brave in times of adversity with Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously—from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain—where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to call on your inner strength to confront them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Having courage is more than just heroic acts in exceptional circumstances. It’s a necessity to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears—in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here. Courage also features meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people cope with their fears. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Who isn¿t seduced by the idea of an affinity between aging and aesthetics? Yet, when does aging truly begin? What attributes does the aesthetic embrace? Looking into startling photographic art of the past three decades, this book is prompted by such questions and turns them into a meditation on how aesthetics mediates our relation to time. The photographic approach of the corporeal is at the center of the book. Within a phenomenological framework, Cristofovici brings into focus the physical and the psychic body to read aging as a process of change and becoming over time. Her understanding of aging sees beyond difference into larger patterns of perceptions that we share. Offering valuable insights into aging as a process of subject construction, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of visual culture, photography, art history, age studies, and theories of knowledge. This cross-disciplinary study that puts theory to the test of life¿s and art¿s paradoxes in an evocative style will also appeal to a wider readership interested in how photography and aging illuminate each other.
