An astonishingly frank, funny, poignant book for any woman
who wishes they had someone who would say to them, ďThis
happened to me, learn from my mistakes and my successes.
Because you donít get smarter as you get older, you get braver.Ē
Sheila Nevins is the best friend you never knew you had. She
is your discreet confidante you can tell any secret to, your
sage mentor at work who helps you navigate the often uneven
playing field, your wise sister who has ďbeen there, done
that,Ē your hysterical girlfriend whose stories about men
will make laugh until you cry. Sheila Nevins is the one
person who always tells it like it is.
In You Donít Look Your Age, the famed documentary producer
(as President of HBO Documentary Films for over 30 years,
Nevins has rightfully been credited with creating the
documentary rebirth) finally steps out from behind the
camera and takes her place front and center.
In these pages you will read about the real life challenges
of being a woman in a man's world, what it means to be a
working mother, what itís like to be an older woman in a
youth-obsessed culture, the sometimes changing, often sweet
truth about marriages, what being a feminist really means,
and that you are in good company if your adult children
donít return your phone calls.
So come, sit down, make yourself comfortable, (and for some
of you, donít forget the damn reading glasses). Youíre in
for a treat.
