Publisher's Summary

In this inspiring and candid book, Jane Fonda, number-one best-selling author, actress, and workout pioneer, gives us a blueprint for living well and for making the most of life, especially the second half of it. Covering sex, love, food, fitness, self-understanding, spiritual and social growth, and your brain, Prime Time offers a vision for successful living and maturing, A to Z.

Highlighting new research and stories from her own life and from the lives of others, Fonda explores how the critical years from 45 and 50, and especially from 60 and beyond, can be times when we truly become the energetic, loving, fulfilled people we were meant to be. Covering the 11 key ingredients for vital living, Fonda invites you to consider with her how to live a more insightful, healthy, and fully integrated life, a life lived more profoundly in touch with ourselves, our bodies, minds, and spirits, and with our talents, friends, and communities.

In her research, Fonda discovered two metaphors, the arch and the staircase, that became for her two visions of life. She shows how to see your life the staircase way, as one of continual ascent. She explains how she came to understand the earlier decades of her life by performing a life review, and she shows how you can do a life review too. She reveals how her own life review enabled her to let go of old patterns, to see what means the most to her, and then to cultivate new goals and dreams, to make the most of the mature years.

There has been a longevity revolution, and average human life expectancy has jumped, often by many years. Fonda asks, what we are meant to do with this precious gift of time? She writes about how we can navigate the fertile voids that life periodically presents to us. She makes suggestions about exercise (including three key movements for optimal health), diet (how to eat by color), meditation, and how learning new things and creating fresh pathways in your brain can add quality to your life. Fonda writes of positivity, and why many people are happier in the second half of their lives than they have ever been before.

In her number-one New York Times best-selling memoir, My Life So Far, Jane Fonda focused on the first half of her extraordinary life, in what she called Acts I and II, with an eye toward preparing for a vibrant Act III. Now we have a thoughtfully articulated memoir and guide for how to make all of your life, and especially Act III, Prime Time.

    "Solid Jane Fonda Quality!"

    As a woman approaching my 2nd act (I turn 29 this year) this book offered up a dose of needed perspective and reassurance. Reassurance that with the RIGHT preparation, insight and introspection - things are just going to keep getting better.

    To be honest, I skipped about a third of this book - the chapter on senior sex and nutrition, but from what I did hear, I have a mental note to go back and read this in 30 years.

    I love that Jane Fonda herself narrates, at 72, with such passion and vivacity. She is a true tour de force, despite all her admitted and exposed flaws, plastic surgery and insecurities. Love her, and she has a LOT to teach.

    Bought this for my mom and my grandmother for mother's day.

    "Inspiring, with good sciene and philosophies."

    I found this book inspiring (I'm 53) and was fascinated with getting to know Jane Fonda. She is very open and personal, and it is especially imitate hearing her story from her own voice. She gives a lot of detailed science and has done her homework well. It is a good book for anyone at "crossroads" in life. I am looking the 3rd act right in the eye, and with retirement coming soon, I found a lot of motivation to jump into my new life in a meaningful way. She gave a spiritual perspective close to mine, and I was very surprised to hear it from her. I use to "jump with Jane" in the 80's, and now I am listening to her to learn life philosophies. Fascinating.

    Story
    "Excellent"
    Would you listen to Prime Time again? Why?

    Yes. This is the type of book that you pick up more and more each time you listen. Jane is the reader of her book and she reads with humor and animation and holds my attention. She describes the process of getting older as it happens to each of women, and men.


    What other book might you compare Prime Time to and why?

    Uncertain.


    What does Jane Fonda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings a lifetime of experience based on her determination to grow spiritually and with confidence on the next phase of life. I am also in the third act of my life and the vision I have obtained from doing my life's review has helped me to understand the "becomingness" of Me. Her voice is pleasing to listen to and she is animated and brings the reader into the room with her.


    What did you learn from Prime Time that you would use in your daily life?

    I have learned so much. Our thoughts and beliefs make us who we are and when we are optimistic and make sure that our thoughts are aligned with our actions, we will grow and be the best person we can be.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved every moment of listening!

    "Surprisingly insightful"

    I watched an interview with Jane Fonda recently and thought she has aged beautifully, is sensitive and articulate with the ability to laugh at herself. I’d like to age with such grace and since I am about to enter my “third act” as Jane Fonda calls 60+, I was open to the lessons Fonda had for me.

    I have come away with mixed reviews. I did learn things, I was also bored by some of the more elementary sections of information.

    What I liked and appreciated was being read aloud to by Jane Fonda. Her voice was faltering and slow but it felt personal and for the most part sincere. I learned about generativity which for me is a new concept. I want my “third act” to be based on this new concept. I learned about other books, doctors, and authors that Fonda quoted. I plan to look into reading these books, learning about the doctors. I enjoyed some of Fonda’s confessions, self disclosures, and anecdotes.

    What I didn’t like was that the book read too much like a very basic “how to” book. The part about what to eat, the lists of foods or amounts of foods was not necessary. For some of us this is far too elementary.

    I think Fonda is intelligent and witty. I think she is a great actor and did wonders for the fitness boom especially for women. I appreciate that she quoted lots of doctors. However I feel that some subjects should have been left for experts. These areas fell short of insights or credibility.

    I was able to find wisdom. I really like the concept of a “third act”. This appealed to me and I found myself feeling more hopeful as I shortly enter my “third act”.

    "yawn"

    It's painfully boring. I couldn't get through it. She seems to be just another has been trying to die rich and seem like she learned some greater lesson than the rest of us. Sorry Jane.
