In the last twenty years an historic revolution has occurred in the adult lifecycle. Young people are waiting until their 30s to leave home and get married, more women are having children at 40 or over, 50-year-old men are being forced into early retirement, 60-year-olds feel like 50, and 70-year-olds feel like 60. People are taking longer to grow up, and much longer to grow old.
This book takes the stories of hundreds of people, British and American, backed up with extensive research and social analysis, to explore the new stages of adult life. Inspiring and informative, its insights will not only help you make sense of your own life by understanding others, but will permanently alter the way you think about yourself.
