A woman's 40th birthday comes on like a tsunami, especially when life's biggest excitement means finding a wad of fudge in a half gallon of ice cream.

This was a great read. I loved the light-hearted humor throughout the story, and wondered how the author had managed to get into my head and learn of all my disjointed thoughts!

This book takes a very positive look at aging, as we follow the life of a woman who just turned 40, and jumps on the fast track of crossing off every item on her bucket list.

It's wonderful to follow her through her mishaps and victories, and ultimately to a proper perspective; all while "hearing" everything going on insi

Oh I know, I'm a man, and being too old at 70 I couldn't possibly understand..
But are there really so many women out there that can't stand up for themselves in a conversation, that can't simply state their feelings without completely folding at the first hurdle?
Why is that so many people take it upon themselves to worry about, therefore to take responsibility for other peoples' feelings and reactions? How is it that so many people don't realise that the

Meh. I was looking for some lighthearted chick lit for a quick and easy read. Creeping up on 40 myself, I liked the concept, but the book got a little too serious (and a bit preachy) for me towards the end. Cut out the "maybe one of us is having an affair" parts, and just focusing on the madcap adventures surrounding the goals and I think it would have been better.

This book was so funny!! Seriously I loved this book. I hate to admit that I am in fact forty but this book hits the mark. I too have thought about becoming an aerobic instructor....OMG it's like you are reading my mind. Buy this book it's worth every penny.Bravo

Funny at times. I could relate to her in many ways! Loved Eddie!

I could relate to many of the themes, though I didn't take turning 40 as such a terrible thing as did Susanna. I loved the character of Eddy.

Not a rock your world. But a fun witty look into an ordinary life and growing older. Sweetly satisfying to the end.

This book sounds far better than it is. It was free. Some books should not be published.

She enjoys biking, hiking, and all manner of activity, as long as it's balanced by chocolate and Belgian beer--or a tasty combination thereof. She love ...more
