The book is full of excellent tips for staying up to date instead of looking "dated." I found I was doing some things right, but others I hadn't thought about. It's a quick, easy read and an esteem builder.

Looking Better Already
This book is full of truly helpful hints for looking as young as possible. It cannot dissolve your wrinkles or slim your waist, but it will steer you to potions and tricks that may help. The book is well organized so you can quickly find an answer to a question that has been bugging you and it has sections that other books in the physical self improvement genre ignore. For example, it has a chapter on eyewear (glasses) that is as valuable as any part of the book if you wish to avoid looking old. I had intended to get new lenses and use my old frames, but after reading the chapter, sprang for new frames, as well. You may not want to spend any money to keep from looking old, but face it, you have to. I hope the book will be updated at least every other year, so look for the newest edition.

This book is full of little secrets to help the middle-aged woman look more like her younger and hipper counterparts. I have many young co-workers and constantly feel the pressure not to be the old lady in the group, even though I am old enough to be their mother! I bought this book and started using the author's recommendations.The compliments I have been getting all center around how much younger and cuter I look. Needless to say, I LOVE IT! Full of fantastic beauty secrets that do not cost a fortune, I have already recommended this book to several of my friends.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-11-19 Krupp, style expert for the Today Show and former beauty director for Glamour, offers easy-to-follow, tried-and-true fashion advice for women well beyond their 20s. Presented in eye-catching, highly skimmable, fashion-magazine style, here's how to trade in the things that scream old lady (simply "OL" in the book) for a look that's younger and hipper ("Y&H"). Krupp is straightforward about the physical shortcomings of older age. Aptly (and sometimes rather brutally) she steers readers away from these OL pitfalls. She is quick to point out that fashion that works on 20-somethings looks ridiculous on older women (i.e., bare midriffs, go-go boots and tattoos). As much about what to do as what not to do, some of the tips are as easy as wearing pink lipstick, a bra that fits properly and hair with bangs. Others take more thought, time and money-like Botox shots, chemical peels and hair extensions. Whether high or low maintenance about their beauty routine, women of a certain age who want to compete in our youth-obsessed culture will treat this easy read with interest. (Jan.)
