Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Midlife coach Beaman maintains that the characteristics of youth are the ones those in and beyond midlife need to use to recapture their innate youthfulness. She draws on the concept of neotony (in science, the retention of juvenile traits by adults) to propose nine youthful traits to be regained as people age. "Do-overs" for each trait assist readers in developing such capacities as resilience, optimism, curiosity, humor, music, and play. Beaman tends to oversell her point about growing younger, but her guidelines and exercises will probably boost readers' spirits and help them find more pleasure in life.
