Is aging a disease? Is self-love a myth? Can youth be reclaimed after 55? Does happiness have an expiration date? These are just a few of the questions Baby Boomer advocate and Hollywood actress, Joanie “McGranny” Marx, boldly addresses in her #1 Amazon best-selling book, “Facelifts, Money and Prince Charming: Break Baby Boomer Myths & Live Your Best Life”.
With a rapidly aging population, the desire for living a lengthy and quality life is shattered by media stories that paint a grim picture of those over the age of 55 as slow, unsexy and obsolete. By addressing the myths behind these stories, Marx reveals the secret for undoing the fears of being discarded, unseen and abandoned as we age.
Showing where and how to break the seven myths that shaped the lives of Baby Boomers and all generations that follow, Marx passionately debunks mythical claims that there is not enough love, happiness and success to go around. Along the way she reveals the power of forgiveness and gratitude, as she poignantly weaves in the complex and emotionally charged relationship with her mother.
