Publisher's Summary

This audiobook includes an exclusive interview with Annie Auerbach, author of FLEX, discussing how the culture of work has changed, why the old "normal" didn't work, and how we can learn to do things differently.

Do you find yourself fighting the urge to go to bed at 8pm? Do you look at your laughter lines and wonder what was ever so funny? Do you listen to the charts and not have a clue who’s singing? Do images of celebrities over 40 in swimsuits just make you want to drink more wine?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then this is the book for you.

Funny, honest, and packed with advice, this is a must-listen for any woman experiencing - and not particularly relishing - the effects of ageing. Anniki Sommerville shares her own experiences of ageing with those of other women as well as advice from experts to help you navigate this journey including: 

  • Demystifying the menopause and how to deal with fluctuating moods and hormones. 
  • Breaking the taboo of cosmetic surgery and why we need to start having honest conversations about ageing and beauty. 
  • Exploring the reality of fertility treatment and motherhood including what happens when you’re perimenopausal and parenting small kids.
  • How feeling bad about our bodies can often be a barrier to feeling good about sex and tips on how you can change that. 
  • Why ambition is not a dirty word in middle age and how to stop feeling invisible in the workplace. 
  • How to deal with grief and losing loved ones as we age. 

How to be a Boss at Ageing will show you how not to give up when ageing creeps up. It’s time to rip up the rule book on what it means to grow older as a woman and embrace midlife. There’s no need to retire into cardigans and comfy slacks just yet.

A must for any woman feeling wobbly about ageing

Such an important read for this generation of women leaving their 30’s and not wanting to just wear beige but also do wear beige if you really want as long you sometimes try a different shade of beige ! Funny, honest , vulnerable and good tips !

Playground mom chatting in covid age

First two chapters were brilliant, unfortunately than the book went down very fast. It is repetitive and in parts unrelatable (private fantasies in details) . However there are, briefly touched issues which are worthy discussions. I wish this book had more merit and less playground chat feel. Still worth listening fur fun.
