Win one of 10 copies of The Second Half of Your Life

We have 10 copies of the new ground breaking book, The Second Half of Your Life, written by Jill Shaw Ruddock.

The Second Half of Your Life inspires women to rethink what it means to grow older. The book has been heralded as ‘one of the most important women’s books for a decade’, ‘ground breaking’, ‘inspirational’ and ‘the manual for women in the second half of their life’.

Based on the science of hormones, her extensive research and interviews, Jill Shaw Ruddock provides prescriptive advice on how to use the biological changes that occur around menopause to help make the second half of life the best half. Providing practical hands-on advice on how to harness the power of the oestrogen-free mind to make the most of new opportunities, Ruddock covers everything from money to the mind, dating to divorce, exercise to eating, and the libido to looking your best.

The results are in!

Congratulations to our winner
Nethi Sette, Louise Middleton, Julie Haden, Lynn Brown, Wendy Culham, Jane Morton, Rebecca Bertenshaw, Sandra Merrick, Sara Gallie & Lynn Neal
We will contact you via email to assist in claiming your prize!

Thank you to all who entered, and good luck with our other competitions!
