Going Gray: What I Learned about Beauty, Sex, Work, Motherhood, Authenticity and Everything Else That Really Matters by Anne Kreamer
Ann Kreamer considered herself a youthful 49 until a photo of herself with her teenage daughter and a friend stopped her in her tracks. In one unguarded moment she saw herself as she really was—a middle-aged woman with hair dyed much too harshly. She set out on a plan to let her hair become its true color and along the way, discovered her true self. Through interviews, field experiments, and her everyday chronicle (with predictable ups and downs), she probes two issues aging women face: Can I be sexually attractive as a gray-haired, middle-aged woman? And will I be discriminated against in the work world? Her answers will surprise you.
