Older, Wiser, Fiercer

Featuring wonderful affirmations and wisdom from brilliant women from all over the world, this funny and wise book will strike a chord with many women. It is a true celebration of the benefits that come with age.
True wisdom comes with age, the saying goes. Of course it does — and this book proves it.
Older, Wiser, Fiercer is a celebration of something that only women in their later decades know: how glorious, satisfying and FUN getting older can be. We’ve travelled a way down the path of life and we have picked up much experience along the way. Whatever it is, we’ve been there, rolled our eyes and moved on. We know who we are and we’ve realized that we like ourselves, for all our faults (hell, because of all our faults!).
Full of funny affirmations, tongue-in-cheek mantras and sage advice from trailblazing older women, from film stars to musicians, writers to politicians, this book will make you laugh out loud and nod in recognition. You’ll find reflections such as:
‘Never let anyone waste your time twice.’
‘If it involves fake smiling, then I’m not going.’
‘Tact means the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the journey.’
‘It’s OK if someone doesn’t like you. Many people have terrible taste.’
The young can keep their collagen and their self-doubt. Being older, wiser and fiercer is where it’s at.

    Don’t make the same mistake twice. Make it six or seven times just to be sure.

    When you have dealt with enough recalcitrant toddlers, stroppy teenagers and difficult bosses (oddly similar); when you have chosen partners, sofas and wedding guest outfits; when you have lived through family crises, plumbing emergencies and realizing the price sticker is still on the sole of your shoe, nothing really fazes you anymore
