    Maked Sense

    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 book saved my life

    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.
