Synopsis: I've had my face revised from time to time. In fact, Darwin would be happy to know that my face is in a constant state of evolution.
Leave it to the inimitable Joan Rivers to tell the whole truth about how women feel when it comes to getting older. But while you can't stop time, you don't have to speed it up or let it determine the way you look and feel. Now, in this funny, charming, and practical new book, she shows every woman how to be the best she can be and stay youthful, healthy, and mellow at anyand everyage.
Filled with the latest information on anti-aging breakthroughs as well as entertaining personal anecdotes and stories told with Joan Rivers's incomparable verve and wit, Don't Count the Candles...offers down-to-earth, sensible advice on wardrobe, makeup, fitness, diet, surgery, sex (well, did you think she wouldn't? Grow up!), lifestyle, relationships, and everything in between that every woman old enough to remember the Beatles needs. In her own personable style, Joan Rivers offers a unique, enlightening, and ultimately uplifting take on every aspect of staying young:
IQ does not decrease with age. If you were a moron at twenty, you will be a moron at seventy-five.
They say that when you get older, your sex life diminishes. That would mean I'd owe.
At fifty, confine your piercing to sardine cans and keep your hair short.
Eat all you want, just don't swallow it.
A roll in the hay keeps the doctor awayunless he happens to be in the hay with you.
Getting older doesn't have to mean the end; these days there's no such thing as over the hill, because the hill has been movedwhether you're hitting your forties, or well into your fifties, or sixty and beyond. "The stock of where you are chronologically, to realize all the baggage that comes with agingand then not to accept it. Yes, refuse to pay the COD. I believe infighting aging all the way, but fighting it constructively and with intelligence. Doing what we can do to look the best that we can look. Being the best we can possibly be."
As she so vividly emphasizes, it's all about attitude. Life is a gift, and what's the alternative? Take it from Joan Riversthe fight against time has only just begun. You've got a lot of living left to do!
