If you are interested in the cougar phenomenon, the NY Times ran a very interesting article that includes authorities from many research studies around the country. The article, entitled “Rethinking the older woman-younger man relationship” is lengthy and filled with surprising statistics about this new trend that began with the stars and is now part of real life.
At the very end, the author mentions the new book with my chapter – Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am, by Linda Franklin. How exciting! Her book does take a fresh look at women over 40, not as preying on younger men, but as being smart, sexy, independent women proud to be over 40. That’s hard to argue with if you ask me! What over 40 women doesn’t want to be described this way?
Linda Franklin encourages women to live full, rich lives and to go for their dreams. This is a positive and empowering message. Since her background is financial, the final chapters are devoted to managing your money and she offers lots of great advice.
