    I’ve really enjoyed this book. After reading it, I was left with a sense of power, purpose and adventure. It’s very informative and I particularly found the chapters on the Evolution of Ageing and of the Menopause, and the one on the Sense of Self interesting, putting individual experience in a wider context. The book discusses three main archetypes – the Hero, Wise Woman and Goddess, bringing them to life in an appealing and inspiring way. I like the way the book gives concrete examples throughout of how a myth or archetype might relate to everyday lives, as well as many exercises and visualisations for practical help. The chapters on the Dark Side of Ageing also give help and comfort for any fears around ageing and the book ends with some very useful and practical exercises and visualisations for how to move forward. It accepts and celebrates the adventure of ageing and very much gives me a sense of being the hero, not the victim, in that journey.

    I really liked this book. Speaking as a post-menopausal woman, I know how easy it is to feel vulnerable and to feel I've lost the spark and enjoyment of youth. This book reminded me that this is just an attitude of mind, and that women of my age not only have much to offer (grandmothers know that!) but also much to gain. Old age is an adventure. It may not go right - what adventures do? - but what a nice way to view it! Armed with this attitude, you can find lots of ideas and exercises in this book to help you think through where you are and where you're going, and for when it all feels too much there are a whole lot of emergency help ideas to help you through the difficult times. Plus which, this book is packed with interesting information and is really nice to read. It reminded me that so many women have done this before and that lots of them have been heroes, not victims. And I want to be a hero too!
