Many thanks to Dr. Romance -- Tina Tessina, Ph.D. -- for her review of my book, Better Than I Ever Expected: Straight Talk about Sex After Sixty. Tessina, Redbook's "Love Expert," is a licensed psychotherapist in S. California, with over 30 years experience in counseling individuals and couples and author of 11 books. Here's what she said:
This book was better than I ever expected. It's a wonderful balance of memoir, others' personal reflections, and fact. A very enjoyable, well-written, and useful read, especially encouraging and supportive for older women.
We live in a youth-obsessed culture, and too many people are afraid of growing older. Joan Price's book tells it like it is -- sex can be great after sixty, long-term relationships are worth keeping, and even senior dating can be great! This book looks at real life as we age, and sex as a reality of senior relationships. With lively interviews, expert commentary and lots of valuable information, it's a must read for anyone who is getting older -- and none of us is getting younger! Younger women will enjoy knowing that the future is positive. I will be recommending it to clients.
Tina Tessina's latest book is Money, Sex and Kids, a guide for handling marital conflict and arguments over these hot-button issues.
