It’s Never Too Late To Date with Shirley and Howard
SHIRLEY FRIEDENTHAL could have inspired the song, “Matchmaker, Matchmaker.” For 27 years, in her late husband’s internal medicine practice, she counseled patients with sexual, marital, and assorted other family problems, occasionally matchmaking on the side. She strengthened her skills with courses in human sexuality, group therapy, and psychology at The New School and New York University, and studied Rational Therapy with Albert Ellis. “That was all about making people happier,” Shirley explains. “So is this book.”
HOWARD EISENBERG has written for TV, radio, national magazines, and the theatre.
