Overview

New York Times bestselling author Barbara Sher has transformed the lives of millions with her phenomenally successful books, workshops, and television appearances.  Now, in a work that explores and demystifies one of life's most challenging and bewildering passages, she shatters the myth that turns midlife into a crisis and offers a bold new strategy for creating a new life after forty.

Barbara Sher shows you how to rediscover the inspired, enthusiastic adventurer you wanted to be before you became the responsible adult you had to be.  According to Sher, it's never too late to start over.  In fact, midlife is the perfect time to do so, a time when dreams for the future and experiences of the past finally come together.  "The second life," as Sher calls it, can be even better than the first.  More important, it would have been impossible to make these crucial realizations until now.  Discover:

How to make life's built-in "time limit" work for you Which of your "regrets" can point the way to a more rewarding life How to identify--and overcome--the illusions that stop you from living your dreams Dozens of ways to recapture your freedom...  without succumbing to "road fever," trophy-mate collecting, or other midlife maladies.

Combining step-by-step strategies with provocative exercises and motivational techniques, this extraordinary book reminds you of the dreams you abandoned along the path to adulthood, providing all the tools you will need to weave those aspirations into a richly textured, meaningful life.  Beginning with the empowering notion that everyone has a future, Barbara Sher shows you how to turn each of midlife's challenges into a catalyst for dynamic change.  Indeed, no matter what your age, it's only too late--to reclaim your creativity, recapture your long-lost dreams, and embark on an exciting new life--if you don't start right now!

    Missed the mark

    May be more applicable to women than to men. I found little that was inspiring inside.

    An eye opener!

    I am enjoying this book thouroughly. It is much better than i expected and i see myself in it at each turn of the page. You do not have to be in your early 40s to catch the rewards of this book, you can be well past! Gives you lots of ways to think more positively and not get stuck in automatic pilot from words heard long ago!

    Yes

    Mostly slanted towards women, this book is an excellent read. You'll be surprised how Barbara nails your experiences and thoughts right on the money! Her other books are tools to help you figure out and then create the life you want. This book explains alot of the feelings that are underlying the unrest.

    Give this book to people you really like

    I never believed a single book could change my life in so many positive ways. Barbara Sher has a real gift in 'telling it like it is' and helping readers put their lives into perspective. Why do so many of us spend so many years and tears living an unfulfilling life? Ms. Sher tells us why and what we can do about it. I'm a better friend, sister, mother, daughter, wife, student, and teacher, now that I spend my time on the really important things with more efficiency and more joy of living. When mid-life hits, you can either panic or start to appreciate the gifts in your life which are just waiting for you to look for them. At 46, I really have created my second life and this book gave me the blueprint.
