"...the decided advantage of the audiobook is that it is read by a cast of stars as long as your arm - thanks to Nevins' considerable achievements in television and production...This is choice listening for the car, as the stories are short and thus lend themselves to erranding and other short hops." Fran Wood, NJ.com

"Thank you to Sheila Nevins for putting all this down for posterity. Women need this kind of honest excavation of the process of living." - Meryl Streep
An astonishingly frank, funny, poignant audiobook for any woman who wishes they had someone who would say to them, "This happened to me, learn from my mistakes and my successes. Because you don't get smarter as you get older, you get braver."
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 "been there, done that," your hysterical girlfriend whose stories about men will make you laugh until you cry. Sheila Nevins is the one person who always tells it like it is.
In You Don't 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 this program you will hear about the real life challenges of being a woman in a man's world, what it means to be a working mother, what it's 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 don't return your phone calls.
So come, sit down, make yourself comfortable, and slip on those headphones. You're in for a treat.

Young women and men should read something else. If that's who you are, just go away now while we readers for whom this book was intended laugh and nod about our hot flashes, grown-up children, frenemies, dental work, little blue pills, interrupted sleep, and smart tales of what it was like then when we were the first women in a male-dominated workplace…well, you get it.
Written by Emmy Award-winning documentary producer Sheila Nevins, this is a hilarious and wise collection of essays, short stories, and poetry depicting what it's like to be an older woman who still wants to be relevant in a world where she finds herself largely invisible.
So if you're a woman of a certain age, read it and know you are part of a bold and powerful sisterhood.
