It Ain't Over...Till It's Over: Reinventing Your Life - and Realizing Your Dreams - Anytime, at Any Age

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Right Words at the Right Time comes a one-of-a-kind collection of inspiring stories about ordinary women who have reinvented themselves in extraordinary ways. "You can be anything you want to be." "Reach for the moon." "It's never too late to make a change." We've heard it all. But anyone who has ever tried to make a big life change knows that it can be a bit more complicated - and scary - than that. How do you get up the nerve (and confidence) to actually take the leap?

Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Right Words at the Right Time comes a one-of-a-kind collection of inspiring stories about ordinary women who have reinvented themselves in extraordinary ways.

"You can be anything you want to be." "Reach for the moon." "It's never too late to make a change." We've heard it all. But anyone who has ever tried to make a big life change knows that it can be a bit more complicated - and scary - 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 audiobook by actress, activist, and best-selling author Marlo Thomas.

Using the same kinds of personal stories that made Thomas's landmark collection The Right Words at the Right Time a blockbuster success, It Ain't Over…Till It's Over introduces us to more than 50 amazing women who are proving that it's never too late to live out a dream - to get a PhD, travel the world, launch a business, indulge a creative impulse, make a family recipe famous, or fill a void in life with a challenging new experience. Meet a homemaker who fulfilled a childhood ambition by going to med school at age 43; a widow with three young kids who turned a jewelry-making hobby into a successful business on Etsy; a woman who lived out a childhood dream by taking a cross-country trip (on horseback, no less!); and a sister and mother who channeled their immense grief from losing a brother and son in 9/11 into creating a global foundation to care for the emotionally wounded.

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.

    "Narrations the ruined book for me"
    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Great stories but I wish that I had read and not listened to this book. There were different narrators, most of whom just seemed a bit overly dramatic which was tiring.
