It may surprise many people to learn that most women age 50 and over are rediscovering themselves more than settling down. So writes Levine (Inventing the Rest of Our Lives), the first editor of Ms. magazine, who uses personal observations and case studies to encourage women to change what has not worked in their lives, develop connections with like-minded women, and take responsibility for their practical and emotional lives. Award-winning journalist Sammons (We Carry Each Other) covers some of the same territory but employs stories of both men and women to illustrate that it's never too late to reinvent one's life. The outcome is a manual of sorts to help readers dream, stay focused, and make the changes they want to see in the world. Both books are recommended for libraries seeking to augment an existing boomer collection.
