An upbeat yet realistic "road map" for older men and women eager to change their lives midcourse.
Nowadays, variations on "midlife is not the end of life" are trumpeted in scores of self-help books, televisions, and movies. Sociologist Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot's book distinguishes itself from those feel-good genres with its nuanced blend of insightful professional observations and real-life stories of older Americans who achieved "third-chapter" life transformations. To formulate her encouraging conclusions, the author draws on extended interviews with scores of men and women who dared to navigate a new way.
