Evening Standard||India Knight tackles aging with wit...[reads like] a funny, informative conversation...often made me laugh out loud.
The Observer||Knight's words feel like you're speaking with that friend who always gives you the best entertaining and informed read.
Stylist||Knight is tremendously opinionated, but there is something strangely comforting about her robust certainty. Reading her book is like having a conversation with a fearfully bossy but beloved old chum

The Times||Joyous advice on how to age wisely, happily and with grace.
