Book Review: Womens and Lemons By Janice Walker

About the book:

YOUR TIME IS NOW!! With this book, you will begin YOUR ADVENTURE to live YOUR DREAM... This book was specifically written for YOU, the Quintastic Woman. You are the fantastic woman in your 50s (although it may apply to women in their 40s as well) who has been a trailblazer on life's path up until now. Reading this book will lead you down a path to dig deep inside and bring to your consciousness those long-abandoned passions, ideas, and desires that you have voluntarily relinquished and sacrificed in order to be everything to everybody. You have lived for everyone else up until now. Perhaps for the first time in the 21st Century, this book encourages the Quintastic Woman to give herself permission to feel hope about her future and the unlimited possibilities; she can finally appreciate who she is now, which should motivate her to pursue her dream. As a Quintastic Woman, are you thinking: What's next for me? What am I going to do at this stage in my life? What do I want? What will fulfill me? What can I do now? If you want to enjoy life like you never thought possible at this mature stage, Womens & LemonsTM is for you. Reading this book will affirm you, show you how to appreciate you, and help you to realize how much potential you have at this Quintastic Stage to live your dream; IT'S NOT TOO LATE, YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE! You've made enough lemonade with the lemons that life has thrown at you. Now it's time for you to squeeze the life out of those lemons and enjoy all that life has to offer you, and you deserve that!! Strap on your seatbelt because with Womens & LemonsTM you are in for the ride of your life! (less)

My Review:

This book is an optimistic book. It talks to you. It is meant for the Quintastic woman. Telling you how even after crossing a particular age, you can still be who you want to be.
The book intends to bring in hope to your life. To help you embrace the real you, and to facilitate in a journey of self-exploration. Because, you know, age is just a number. You cannot be confined by the stereotypes. et cetera.
Well, here's the thing: the book scores so well in its intention that the execution is thoroughly unsatisfying in the way it has been presented. 
But, even so, the book serves as the perfect coffee-table companion.

Let me enumerate the good parts for you:

1) The interviews: The author has taken a few interviews of real women. Now, that doesn't seem like a feat, but those interviews do a great deal for the matter of the book.

2) The graphics: These ae what make it better as a coffee table book, rather than a non-fiction read. 

However, the nerdy injections in the form of explanations for using the gramatically wrong word 'womens' and the derivation of Quintastic were a major turn-off.
