Instead of falling into cultural stereotypes of being old, says the now 61-year-old singer-turned-motivational-speaker, we can take control over how we age. Aimed at her fellow Boomers and women in particular, Judd's presentation is a slow-moving but enjoyable experience, a combination of winning personal anecdotes and stories about vibrant role models for healthy aging in our culture. To be sure, these are Naomi's anecdotes and conclusions, rather than a comprehensive guide to living well in late adulthood. Renee Raudman's innocent interpretation plays up the lessons' next-door-neighbor aspect and underplays the wisdom in the author's story. Raudman's girlish vocal style makes it difficult to connect with the serious intentions of the author and her suggestions. T.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
