Praise For Love Your Age: The Small-Step Solution to a Better, Longer, Happier Life

“In her new book, published by AARP and National Geographic, [Hannah Grufferman] takes a holistic approach to aging well. She devotes chapters of the book to everything from fitness, food and dental hygiene to menopause, sexuality and social connections.” –NJ.com

"[Hannah Grufferman's] narrative voice directs the fun, upbeat tone, but it is the value-packed research on numerous themes and her encouraging advice to take small steps to create healthier habits that make you want to go back to it again, knowing that you will not be preached at, or chastised, like some other self-help books." –Irish Examiner

“This is a thorough guide. No part of your body or midlife experience has been overlooked…It’s a well-researched encyclopedia that reads like caring post-it notes from your smart big sister.”
–NextTribe

"Important message!" –Diane von Furstenberg

“That positive feeling led to [Barbara Hannah Grufferman] completing five marathons, writing three anti-aging books, including her latest, Love Your Age, becoming an AARP ambassador and staying medication-free.” –CBN News

"Barbara Hannah Grufferman's new book will motivate women of all ages to take much better care of themselves by exercising, eating for good health and making an effort to value self-care.  She includes key information on health checks with inspirational advice on how to potentially lengthen your healthspan. I particularly enjoyed the important chapters on brain health.  She offers great tips on how to keep your brain sharp, and how happiness is essential to overall health and wellbeing. The other chapters focus on style, sex, and relationships are also delightful. I loved this book and will recommend it so that others can add healthy habits to their wellness tool box."
- Margaret Nachtigall, M.D., Reproductive Endocrinologist
