Midlife or any life transition is a very confusing time for some of us. This book is a must read for anyone going through change in their life. You have to buy the book because you won't want to give it back if you borrow it.
This is a great book for anyone going through a life transition. I'm not exaggerating when I say that this book saved my life. This book came into my life when I was severely depressed and unsure of what my future looked like. This book definitely 'revived my spirit' and helped me turn my life around.
