3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable book with many topics that are relatable.
Furman's book was both captivating and interesting to read. She provided many examples of the personalities of younger women and older men that make them a great pair. Throughout the book, I believed, she showed that these relationships can survive, and it's okay to go to marriage counseling before you are married. Overall, how issues of power and control are...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile reading, Feb. 24 2000
This review is from: Younger Women-Older Men (Hardcover)
Beliza Ann Furman's book Younger Women/Older Men is a primer for living. It highlights problems that can occur specific to marriages where the husband is older by at least 8 years. She has delved into the subject beautifully. It is so interesting to read because of the real life situations and real people cited. You get the feeling that she knows her subject. Her life is so interesting, too. This book is a must for most Americans because of the high divorce rate and second marriages. She simplifies and assists you in unwinding the complexities of these relationships. Her openness and honesty are a breath of fresh air. ENJOY !

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable book with many topics that are relatable., Oct. 20 1999

Furman's book was both captivating and interesting to read. She provided many examples of the personalities of younger women and older men that make them a great pair. Throughout the book, I believed, she showed that these relationships can survive, and it's okay to go to marriage counseling before you are married. Overall, how issues of power and control are resolved are two of the big issues that can make or break this type of relationship. I rated this book with 3 stars because it provided enjoyment, however I cannot relate it to other books of this topic.

Lame, inane, she's trying to ride on the coat tails of How to Date Young Women for Men Over 35 and falls off in Act 1, scene one.

1.0 out of 5 stars READER FROM CHICAGO,IL, Aug. 23 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Younger Women-Older Men (Hardcover)
This book fell way short of my expectations. It was interesting to me that the author is in a relationship with a large age difference, however she mostly focuses on all of the negative aspects throughout the book. Only at the end does she acknowledge her success with her relationship. It just didn't flow. One would wonder how she ever ended up in a relationship like this. If she is going to make herself an example (having her picture on the front, and her husband's on the back), she should add some of her own experiences so that at least the ending would make a little more sense.

1.0 out of 5 stars It just enforces the stereotypes!, June 24 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Younger Women-Older Men (Hardcover)
This book *seemed* to have good intentions, but fell REALLY short. I think I was turned off right away by the full-page glamour shot of the author and her husband on the back cover.
This book seems to make the assumption that most younger women/older men relationships break up marriages, cause turmoil within families, etc. The author seems to use this book as some sort of pet project to tell the world about her sob story. I didn't learn a thing from reading this book, and was disappointed to see that it just re-enforces the stereotypes about younger women that date older men. We're not all homewreckers, for pete's sake! We're not all bimbos with no aspirations! I still am looking for a decent book on this subject.
