Library Journal - Library Journal
Cramer had a traumatic upheaval at age 41 that led her to form the Cramer Institute to teach others to handle the stresses of change. Now she promises to help others help themselves by getting knowledge and courage on the journey to developing their inner self at midlife. This is not another feel-good quick read full of inspirational vignettes and pablum; this is work! Self-help junkies will find it a tough book to get through because it makes you think and plan ahead. First, you need a self-assessment and then you chart your Life Map. There are seven distinct, interrelated pathways to travel toward "new horizons of personal fulfillment." Completing the ten Self-Renewal Practices in any pathway takes at least one long evening. Only ten percent of the bibliography had studies from 1992 and newer, so the cover phrase "based on new findings" seems overstated. Still, this is a keeper; you'll want your own copy to refer to frequently. This will be popular in public libraries and college psychology courses.Susan Burdick, Lehigh Commurt, Data Arts, Seattle
