I’ve just read What’s Age Got to Do With It? by Robin McGraw.
I’d never heard of Robin McGraw before reading this book, though I gather that she’s a TV personality.
What kind of job is that? being a personality?
Anyway, this is a fun book. It’s a guide to health and beauty for older women, but it’s not a serious book that’s going to tell you to eat right, exercise, and learn about options for managing menopause. Oh, I mean, McGraw tells you that stuff, of course. It would be irresponsible not to include those things in a book on the subject. But she invites you in, gives you a glass of sweet tea, tells you your shoes are just adorable, asks you to sit down, tells you all about her grandma and how many calories are in a bagel — girl, you wouldn’t believe it! — and then tells you to eat right and exercise.
So it’s basically much more fun.
McGraw seems like a very nice, down-to-earth woman, and we should all have her positive attitude toward aging.

I think she’s Dr. Phil’s wife. Which is probably unfortunate for her.
I have to admit that I’m not real clear on who Dr. Phil is. A daytime talk show host? I have a mental picture of him, actually — I know I’ve never seen him on TV, but I can clearly see him in my mind’s eye. Feeling ignorant, here. But McGraw does mention him quite a bit. He rubs her feet, for example, and makes workout mix tapes for her. Does this make you like him better?
Having a positive attitude toward aging is an awful lot easier for people who haven’t started aging yet.
Good point, there.
It’s the kind of job I want: personality, role model, influence, inspiration. But I want to get PAID.
I bet she gets paid.
