They portray men and women at midlife, and offer timeless wisdom for surviving â and growing â in this often turbulent time.

"These are tales of the surprising twists and turns of life that occur between the loss of youthful magic and the gaining of elder's wisdom â delightfully told by a wise and witty psychiatrist." June Singer, Ph.D., author of Boundaries of the Soul and Seeing through the Visible World.
"This book contains storytelling at its best. The tales can guide the reader through the trials and tribulations of this time by shining a light into the darkness." Robert A. Johnson, author of He and She.
