While some people fear growing older, some celebrates it. Dr. Frieda Birnbaum is one such woman who embraces ageing and she wishes to inspire everyone to be like her – to stay positive, active, and to simply make the most of the time you have.


Dr. Frieda’s memoir is a captivating read for all ages as she recounts her decision to become a mother at the age of sixty and how her twin boys reinvigorate her life with energy and excitement.


This book also explores Dr. Frieda’s negative perception of the term “middle-aged” and provides valuable advice on how people should embrace the fifty-plus time of their lives through reinventing themselves and deepening relationships with their loved ones.


After all, age is nothing but a number!
