"Ellen Warner's photographs are deeply narrative, and in this book we are presented with a remarkable enhancement to those images: the real narratives."-- "Tim Gunn, author, actor, Project Runway mentor."
"The diverse and inspiring stories in Ellen Warner's The Second Half are as powerfully written as they are stunningly photographed, and superbly curated. Each face, each life, each page fills you with hope, and takes your breath away."-- "Nandana Sen, writer, actor, activist"
"Warner's book beautifully reflects the challenges and opportunities of growing older in an ageist culture. The depictions of older women's complexity, diversity and resiliency offer a wonderful resource for all of us - including younger people - in our age-segregated society."-- "Joan Ditzion, MSW, and Judy Norsigian, co-founders of Our Bodies Ourselves"
"Ellen Warner's powerful and moving portraits and interviews show us what we need to know: how extremely diverse women envision the second half of women's' lives, and the wide-ranging perspectives they offer to share with us, the fortunate readers."-- "Professor Elaine Pagels, historian"
"The faces of the women in this book, deeply etched by experience and by sorrow and yet alight with life and hope are an enduring tribute not only to Ellen's genius as a photographer skill but also to the personal qualities that give her subjects the freedom to reveal who they really are."-- "Pat Barker, novelist"
"We need to celebrate women for not wrinkles but laugh lines. We need to see ourselves changing and growing. If that means looking older - celebrate it. Experience is as beautiful as youth. These (words and) pictures are meant to teach us that every stage of life has its own enchantment." -- "Erica Mann Jong, from the Foreword"
