Boomer Babes
A Woman's Guide to the New Middle Ages
Linda Stasi, Rosemary Rogers

As its title suggests, this "guidebook to staying hip and hot without flipping out" at almost 50 is not politically correct. Stasi is a journalist; Rogers, a music producer (and coauthor of Saints Preserve Us! 1993). Their strength is snappy patter, opening with "Fifty Good Reasons to Turn Fifty" and "Commandments" --10 "for Preserving Babedom"; 10 "for Preventing Old Fartdom." Four chapters focus on finding a man; two on menopause (hers and his); others on work issues, diet, exercise, hair, makeup, cosmetic surgery, children, parents, "Fallen Idols," money, AARP, and celebrating one's fiftieth birthday.
