New York Times bestselling author Claire Cook (Must Love Dogs, which became a movie starring Diane Lane and John Cusack) has reinvented herself once again with her first nonfiction book—Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way).
Wondering how to get to that life you really thought you'd be living by now? Finally ready to dig up that buried dream? Still trying to figure out what you want to be when you grow up? Then Never Too Late is the book you’ve been looking for.
Claire Cook speaks to real women—our fears and obstacles and hopes and desires—and gives us cutting edge tools to get where we want to go. Bursting with inspiration, insider stories, and practical strategies. Filled with humor, heart, encouragement, and great quotes.
You'll hop on a plane with Claire as you figure out the road to your own reinvention. She’ll share her own stories, successes, and failures, as well as those of other reinventors, plus tips for getting a plan, staying on track, pulling together a support system, building your platform in the age of social networking, dealing with the inevitable ups and downs, overcoming perfectionism, and tuning in to your authentic self to propel you toward your goals.
A little bit memoir, a lot inspiration, Never Too Late: Your Roadmap to Reinvention (without getting lost along the way) is real, grounded, and just the book you need to start reinventing your life.
I've read several of Claire's books and have enjoyed them. This non-fiction piece of work came at a good time for me. I turned 50 in February. I was a few chapters in and was inspired to attend the 2015 We Move Forward conference. I'm registered and looking forward to the event and the beautiful location. I recommend "Never Too Late" if you're wondering what to do with your 3rd act. Thanks Claire!
Never Too Late
LOVED this book. Claire's easy-going style made me feel like we were two girlfriends having a chat. I came across this book @ the perfect time in my life as I'm in the throws of reinventing myself. The advice was inspiring & spot on. I loved the Isla setting as it's one of my favorite places. Thanks Claire for a great book & I hope our paths cross one day.

So for those of you looking for the standard review, I suppose it would go something like this. Claire Cook’s Never Too Late is exploration of reinvention. The book holds true to the author’s voice that we have all come to love. However, instead of weaving together a fictional story with plots and characters, she manages to combine advice, the stories she has collected, and her own personal experiences in a way that goes far beyond the cookie cutter self-improvement books.
However, if you want my from the heart review, it would go something like this. Claire Cook’s Never Too Late is inspiring, real, and filled with advice that you can actually use. She puts it all into perspective and gives you real-life ways of approaching your own reinvention. Without gushing or being to melodramatic, this is the exact book I needed to read at this exact moment in my life.
