Previously 'Passages For Men'.
Her stunning bestsellers 'Passages' and 'New Passages' brilliantly mapped the changes we live through from youth to maturity. Now Gail Sheehy specifically looks at the turbulent challenges and surprising pleasures that begin at midlife for men.
As a man crosses that threshold, troubling questions are bound to impose themselves: now what? Work anxieties, concerns over sexual potency, marital and family stress, issues of power, all take on new urgency as men contemplate the decades ahead.
But as Gail Sheehy reveals in this major new book, midlife is precisely the period when men are most likely to reinvent themselves and become masters of their fate. The book offers all men - and the women in their lives - an essential guide to self-discovery.
Hundreds of bold, imaginative men - celebrities as well as everyday heroes - share here their real desires, deepest fears, and fervent cravings for a new start. Decade by decade, Sheehy uncovers the issues facing men today: surviving job change, finding new passion and purpose to invigorate the second half of their lives, enjoying family life and fatherhood, defeating depression, dealing with male menopause and learning what keeps a man young.
Informative and inspiring, grounded in fact and full of fascinating life stories, this book is a landmark that contributes timeless insights into the complex issues facing modern men today.
