Reviews:
The extremely attractive, hard cover book features the stories and full sized photographs of 100 personalities, all over age fifty, from around the globe, most of whom are oblivious to the “Over the Hill Syndrome” that some people succumb to after reaching age 50. Most the personalities featured, including Ms. Hart have contended with and overcame various challenges, including serious illnesses, divorce, financial downfall, and other major obstacles, but today, are extremely successful, positive and excited about the next phase of their lives. The articles feature individuals who are business professionals, entrepreneurs, doctors, philanthropists, pastors, media representatives and more. 

It was Ms. Hart’s objective to feature individuals with motivational stories with the aim of encouraging and inspiring the 50+ population, especially those who think that because of their age life has passed, or is passing, them by. The articles prove that this is a wrong assessment; instead being over fifty is the perfect time to tap into one’s experience, find yet undiscovered talent and shine brighter than in the former years. 

Some of the other individuals featured in the book include former Jamaica first lady, Beverly Manley, entrepreneur Bill Bartman, and renown motivational speaker Les Brown. From South Florida’s Caribbean community the personalities featured include, community TV host and president of the Caribbean Media Association, Maxine Tulloch, chiropractor Dr. Fidel Goldson, pastor Dr. Dennis Grant, realtor Marie Kong, radio personality and CEO of Riddims Marketing, Eddie Edwards, the founders/owners of Jerk Machine Restaurant, Desmond and Kathleen Malcolm, tax accountant Colin Robinson, herbalist Dianne Galloway of Herbal Gardens, and National Weekly editor, Dr. Garth Rose.- Review by Caribbean National Weekly
