Shifting Gears: Planning a New Career for Midlife and After

Shifting Gears: Planning a New Career for Midlife and After

by Andrea Gross

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book enables restylers, or those persons 40 years old and older, to engage fully in the inevitable process of adult development, particularly as relating to work/lifestyle identity. Gross's work combines statistical facts, professional consultation, exercises, resources, and actual life stories of people who changed careers for something more meaningful. While Caroline Bird's Second Careers: New Ways To Work After 50 ( LJ 12/91) focuses more completely around 28 specific job clusters and how an individual finds his/her niche within these careers, Gross's work centers around an individual's interests and motivations while showing how to shift career gears over one's lifespan. This is recommended for career collections.-- Linda Malone, Univ. of Virginia Health Sciences Ctr., Charlottesville
