If I Knew Then: Finding Wisdom in Failure and Power in Aging – Jann Arden
Jann Arden – bestselling author, recording artist and late-blooming TV star is back with this funny, heartfelt and fierce memoir on becoming a woman of a certain age. The power, gravity and freedom she’s found at fifty-seven are superpowers she believes all of us can unleash.
Digging deep into her strengths, her failures and her losses, Jann Arden brings us an inspiring account of how she has surprised herself, in her fifties, by at last becoming completely her own person. Like many women, it took Jann a long time to realize that trying to be pleasing and likeable and beautiful in the eyes of others was a loser’s game. Letting it rip, and damning the consequences, is not only liberating, but it’s also a hell of a lot of fun: “Being the age I am–that so many women are–is just the best time of my life.”
