5.0 out of 5 stars Grow Alive Instead of Old, January 24, 2005
By Artist Barbara Garro (Barbara Garro at in Saratoga Springs, NY) - See all my reviews
You can grow old in the darkness of night or grow alive in the light of your sun--your choice. Richard J. Leider and David A. Shapiro take you by the hand and help you see how to let go of the things that don't bring you alive and replace them with things that do. Can it really be that simple? You decide. 

CLAIMING YOUR PLACE AT THE FIRE lets you see how to believe that every second of human life is valuable. And, oh how our needy world needs the best of every single one of us. If you can answer a telephone and speak, you can volunteer for a prayer line where people call for comfort in times of turmoil and are so grateful when they get a live person.

When you are tempted to give in to your aches and pains, do remember Stephen Hawking, our modern day Einstein confined to a wheel chair, who had a body that was unable to respond to him. So, he used to the fullest what was able to respond to him, his mind, and blessed the entire universe with his wisdom. 

Best of all, CLAIMING YOUR PLACE AT THE FIRE makes you feel warm and comfortable about walking your path instead of so afraid of what will happen to you. 

5.0 out of 5 stars Step Up .. It's Time and Here's HOW, November 19, 2007

If you've 'tripped over the human 50-yard line' ... then this book is definitely for you. I personally wish I would have been wise enough to understand it's deeper meanings 20 years ago - but that would not have happened. The words and wisdom of this book are just not for the younger years. But as the book shows, it is our - those of us who now find ourselves, by age and experience, at the edge of the fire - responsibility to pass on - as mentors - to the younger generation the most important piece of advice they can get: "You will one day be here, prepare now."

A must read for every man and woman over 50 years of age. This is a guide book for
+ WHY you should look forward to living past 50,
+ What you should have been doing before you got here
+ How to make the most of your Life Learnings
+ Where you are now and in the remaining years of your life
+ Who your focus will be on from now on: giving of your Life Learnings to the younger generation 

This is what those 'hot-dog roasting fires' were meant to be! Go read the book. Then go build a fire and roast some hot-dogs, make some smoores and gather your friends to enjoy. The rest will come as the embers begin to glow. So will you.  

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking, February 11, 2008

To retire or refire? What does the future hold? "Claiming Your Place at the Fire" helps us ask the right questions as we try to make sense out of and find meaning in the second half of our lives. It is full of insight on how to do that in a way that makes sense for a variety of people in all sorts of situations. It was very helpful to me as I weigh the options in my life and work. Thought provoking and conversation starting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamite, Provokative, Fascinating, Pushes the Envalope, March 29, 2010
Sex for Grownups: Dr. Dorree Reveals the Truths, Lies, and Must-Tries for Great Sex After 50 These authors, Dr. Dorree Lynn and Cindy Spitzer, are in my 61 year old head (and body). How did they do it? They are funny, yet informative, though a bit way out for my taste. But,they are so permission giving, savvy and informative, they may yet convince me to open my mind about a number of issues I've never really thought about. They have a very different spin on sex and life. There's so much depth, almost too much to absorb, yet it's an easy read. I've never read anything quite like it. And that's saying a lot. Anyone else have reactions to this unusual book? 

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for seniors facing a sexual crisis, March 25, 2010
Doree Lynn and Cindy Spitzer really tell it like it is - the truths,lies, and must-tries for persons over
50 who may be experiencing dissatisfaction in their sex lives. Great chapter titles!

5.0 out of 5 stars Should We Tell the Kids?, April 8, 2010

Why should kids have all the fun? Should we TELL them it's still getting better, or let them grow up and find out for themselves?

Guess I'm inclined to be kind, so I leave Sex for Grownups lying around when my adult kids come to visit. Now that Dr. Dorree has put all her clinical experience and experience between the sheets between these covers, no one needs to miss out on what the second half of life has to offer. Happy, satisfying senior sex--one of the world's best kept secrets until now--is out in the open, and the world is a better place because of it.

Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk About Sex After Sixty by Joan Price (Paperback - Dec. 13, 2005) 

Reviews from: Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk About Sex After Sixty 
5.0 out of 5 stars Encouraging advice, and a great love story, too, February 24, 2006 ~ By T. Goldfarb (New Jersey) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME)

If you're trying to decide which of the new "sex over 60" books to buy, definitely choose this one. It is not a step-by-step "how to" book that might offend people, although it does cover every aspect of sexual activity--married, single, solo, gay, straight, young, old, one-night, long-term (50 years and even longer). Instead, the book provides practical, encouraging advice from experts and from ordinary women about the joys of loving relationships, dealing with sexual problems of menopause, loss of interest in sex (or your partner's loss of interest and/or ability), how to approach sex with a new partner, helpful exercises, and even a detailed discussion of sex toys and assistive devices. (I thought these were only for `adventurous' couples, but the book explains how they can make sex possible and more enjoyable for older people).

Plus, this book is also a beautiful love story which could stand on its own, even without all the excellent sex information. The writer chronicles her many relationships, from her first teenage romance (You'll be furious to learn how her father broke up what might have been a lasting relationship), to a succession of sexual affairs, including a short failed marriage. It's easy to see why she had given up on finding true love. But she never gave up on having an active, fulfilling life as a dance and exercise instructor, despite two devastating auto accidents that left her with many scars and lasting injuries.

And then, magic! In the form of a trim, gray-haired, older man she spots in one of her dance classes. These are true-to-life 60-plus people, not wrinkle-free, gorgeous-body super models, but the story of how their love and sexual relationship blossomed is a real page turner. And be prepared for a few tears when you come to a troubling revelation near the end of the story.

This is a thought-provoking, informative, encouraging book you'll definitely want to share with friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Sex Itself: Fascinating, Fun, and Educational, October 17, 2006

Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk About Sex After Sixty by Joan Price lives up to its title! Like sex itself, it is fascinating, fun, and educational: a how-to book for staying sexually active and enjoying it as we, men and women, mature. With stimulating anecdotes and clinical details, it leaves no sexual arena unexplored. It encourages us to move beyond age and sexual stereotypes and better understand ourselves and our bodies. It gives a variety of suggestions on how to surmount dryness, wrinkles, flaccidity, and the like, in order to continue exploring the frontiers of pleasure and intimacy. Wise and very respectful, Joan reminds us "Great sex is what's happening between two souls, two minds, two hearts--not just two bodies." This book is a testimony to love and creativity. EVERYONE will learn from it. It is what a book should be, enriching! I wholeheartedly recommend it. 

5.0 out of 5 stars Sassy Elders!, February 1, 2006

Dr. Bond of Rebeccasreads highly recommends BETTER THAN I EVER EXPECTED: Straight Talk about Sex after Sixty as a courageous & witty guide for young people on the verge of discovering the paradise of sexuality, for older couples who have been brain-washed into thinking sex is only for the young, & for those happy lovers of all ages who wish to believe that the bliss of lovemaking will continue as long as they live.

After Joan Price agreed to write BETTER THAN I EVER EXPECTED, she circulated the following: "Wanted: Interviews with sassy, sexy women, age 60+, who are willing to share feelings and experiences openly and anonymously in a candid, woman-to-woman book" (p. 6). To her surprise, women responded abundantly, & were hungry to share their experiences & reveal the most intimate details of their bodies, fantasies, & relationships. Price uses quotes from these women's responses to illustrate her findings throughout.

BETTER THAN I EVER EXPECTED is an original book that needed to be written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best instructional video, November 28, 2009
As a married couple, sometimes you hit a lull in your bedroom and you need a little help reinvigorating that sexual spark. When we ordered this DVD set, we didn't have high expectations, but this definitely delivered, especially when we compared it to other instructional DVDs that we've tried. There is no set order in viewing the DVDs but each DVD has content that builds on the techniques. The framework of the DVDs is kind of like a sex therapy session, where you have someone explaining the technique, practicing the technique, and then providing immediate feedback on the technique so it can be improved upon in real time as a couple attempts to explore Tantra. It was very easy to follow and because of the emphasis on communication, it definitely helped to build greater intimacy and intensified the sexual experience. There is a nice balance between information and exploration, so you don't get bored or lose interest. If you are looking for a video that is borderline porn, this is not it. These are real couples who are searching for deeper ways of connecting with each other. We loved watching it and putting it into practice--it really helped to develop greater intimacy. 

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic intimacy supplement to a loving relationship., April 2, 2010
This set is explicit and very informative. These dvd's take a couple to a much more sophisticated level of intimacy in a loving relationship. They are good fun, very informative and very sexy ~ it will take weeks to 'work' your way through them with your partner!
