More About It Ain't Over . . . Till It's Over by Marlo Thomas
 
 
 
Overview
We've heard it all before: "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."
"Where there's a will, there's a way."
"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade."
But anyone who has ever tried to make a big life change knows it can be a bit more complicated-- and frightening--than that. How do you get up the nerve and confidence to actually take the leap? No one knows better than the women profiled in this powerful book by actress, activist, and bestselling author Marlo Thomas.
"It Ain't Over . . . Till It's Over "introduces us to sixty amazing women who are proving that it's never too late to live out a dream--to launch a business, travel the world, get a PhD, indulge a creative impulse, make a family recipe famous, escape danger, find love, or fill a void in life with a challenging new experience. Meet a graphic artist who fulfilled a childhood ambition by going to med school at age forty-two; a suburban mom whose innovative snack recipe for her daughter's lunchbox turned into a multimillion-dollar business; a private-practice psychiatrist who convinced her husband that they should quit their jobs and take off on an exciting, open-ended, cross-country adventure--in a giant bus, no less ; and a middle-aged English teacher who, devastated to discover that her husband was cheating on her, refused to be a victim, filed for divorce, and began the challenging journey of rebuilding her life.
Brimming with anecdotes that will inspire smiles, tears, and--most of all--hope, "It Ain't Over" speaks to women of all ages with an empowering message: The best is yet to come

From her eponymous web series for women, Thomas—actress, activist and author (Free to Be…You and Me)—handpicks 60 of her site's followers and weaves their true stories into a chatty magazine-style compilation about the joy of self-fulfillment. No hurdle is too daunting for this group of women, who Thomas defines as a part of the "Reinvention Generation," not even age—many of the women profiled are in their 60s and 70s. Thomas opens with five women who launched their own businesses, charting their successes in brief. Beyond their financial achievements lie personal goals: one follower from Panama City shrinks to a size 10 from a 32, and another finally found time to attend college at 54. This motivational compilation includes a tonic for every challenge with the seemingly ageless, Thomas leading by example. As one of her followers points out, Thomas has "been all the way up and all the way to the very bottom" yet she continues to soldier on, illustrating that the key to success is taking action. Certainly the level of accomplishment displayed by her fans is a testimony to the author's personal charisma, which is on full display here and will no doubt invite an even larger following. Photos.
