If you're a woman over 40, you are undergoing physical and emotional changes, declining metabolism, fat deposits at your waistline, decreased energy, mood swings, food cravings--do we need to continue this list?

Book description
Turtle slips and slides and finally ends upside-down, certain he will die. But while on his back, he learns valuable lessons about how to manage his life. He learns that things really CAN be different. These lessons come in the form of gifts - from the clouds, the trees, the mountain and even a butterfly. Steve Goodier, author of numerous inspirational and persoanl growth books, shows us that "personal" is not a dirty word. LESSONS OF THE TURTLE is informative as well as entertaining. A must read for anyone interested in making needed changes.

This is a wonderful book to read and to give as a gift. It is thoughtful at a real life level; not like books you read where people did incredible things and you think that's nice but you could never do that. This is a book you can take in small steps, a moment at a time, and be touched in your own way. I keep it at work and read one each day before hitting traffic -- one moment may SAVE a life! And I like the humor.
