KIRKUS REVIEW

To keep herself looking and feeling vital, Linda Evans favors faith in self, in God, and in a pastiche of numerology, meditation, astrology, calisthenics, massage, artful make-up, jogging, hair rinses, and vitamins. As the accompanying photos attest, the forty-ish Evans (of TV's Dynasty) is the best advertisement for this catch-all regimen. Part I, ""Inner Beauty,"" is the story of how Evans put it all together (after two divorces) to find herself. The exhortation is to think positive: ""I believe that life is a learning experience. . . . Looking for the joy, rather than focusing on the sadness, has helped me in every area of life."" Part II, ""Outer Beauty,"" lists the steps of Evans' own beauty routine, which she has put together over the years with help from favored beauticians, hairdressers, and masseuses. (""To save yourself time and money, Nolan suggests investing in good quality taupe-colored pumps and matching bag."") The exercise component is based on spot-specific calisthenics (and offers no good advice); Evans also jogs. Sparse on actual guidelines, then; mostly the tale of how one very popular, much-admired lady pulls it off.
