Fifty Is the New Fifty
Ten Life Lessons From Women in Second AdulthoodBook - 2009
Ten lessons to maximize creativity and happiness in the second half of life. Author Levine provides fresh insights, research, and practical advice on the challenges and unexpected rewards for women in their fifties and beyond. Rich with anecdotes from the front lines of self-reinvention, this book captures the voices of women who are confronting change, renegotiating their relationships, and discovering who they are now that they are finally grown up. Among the lessons are: the energizing power of standing up for what you mean and what you want; a new way of getting yourself to the top of the to-do list; and reassurance that changing your outlook doesn't have to mean walking away from your marriage. Shaped by Levine's empathetic and lively voice, this book is about wisdom, survival, joy, and camaraderie.--From publisher description.
