"As a psychoanalyst I am very fond of this book because it describes the eternal struggle of the individual for self-value and significance. As we get older we tend to worry about being appreciated and hope that others are still eager to be with us. The whole story is written with sensitivity and humor and is well worth reading."

 — Yecheskiel Cohen
Psychoanalyst and Clinical Psychologist

"Plastic surgery – from reconstruction to cosmetic has made tremendous strides in techniques, technology and safety. The last decade has witnessed an explosion in non-surgical cosmetic medicine; lasers, fillers and injections. Gottlieb humorously weaves modern day plastic surgery trends into the fabric of her entertaining novel.”

"What do we do to stay young as our bodies age? Some women dance. Others
play tennis or golf or Bridge, maybe even visit museums. Whatever you choose, chances are
those who succeed in keeping good spirits laugh. A lot. Gottlieb¹s book pokes fun at this stage of life and provides some much-needed laughter.”

— Linda Goldstein, The Whitney Museum of American Art

 “The fields of cosmetic dermatology and laser surgery have seen incredibly innovations in the past 10 years.  New laser & energy based devices, fillers, and botulinum injections allow us to now turn back the clock non-invasively.  In her novel,  Gottlieb artfully reveals how these new innovations have permeated our society and daily lives.”
