Excerpt from Book

Susan Goldfein holds a doctorate in Communication Disorders from Teachers College, Columbia University, which, while affording her success as a clinician, teacher, and consultant, has done absolutely nothing to prepare her for creating a blog or a book.

With topics ranging from marital “bliss” to wearing stiletto heels at an age when one should know better, Susan blends just the right amount of the absurd into her daily life to keep her readers laughing — and thinking.  After all, where else can you find reality TV with a senior slant, or organic food shopping with a side of wry? This sparkling collection will appeal to mothers and daughters alike, as well as the fathers and sons trying to figure out what the other side really thinks.

You can purchase “How Old Am I in Dog Years?” from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
