Turning 50 is an interesting milestone for most people. We all have different reactions when we reach this new decade. When I hit 50, I was confused, overwhelmed and a bit nervous about what it meant, mostly because it happened so quickly. Realizing that I needed some guidance, I went to some of the best experts in the world, to get their advice, much of which is included in "The Best of Everything After 50."
While writing the book, I did a little a research about the "after-50" market. I had a lot of questions, but I also wanted to know more about the demographic I was about to enter. Turns out, I'm part of a pretty big club, and it's growing every year. A few facts:
Even more entertaining, though, was the list of American icons who are in the club with me. (We're getting George Clooney's membership card ready; he'll be inducted next May.)

Who are some of your favorite 'after 50' icons?
