9780452287211: Inventing the Rest of Our Lives: Women in Second Adulthood

New brain research is proving it: Women at midlife really do start to see the world differently. Some 37 million women now entering their fifties and sixties—a unique generation—are refashioning their lives, with dramatic results. They have fulfilled all the prescribed roles—daughter, wife, mother, employee, but they’re not ready to retire. They want to experience more. Suzanne Braun Levine gives us a fun, smart, and tremendously informative road map through the challenging and uncharted territory that lies ahead.

From the Back Cover:

"Levine takes us beyond the frontier of our own expectations and into a new and hope-filled stage of life."
—Gloria Steinem

"I found so many resonances with my own experiences in this book... It will have a huge impact and will clarify so many things for so many women."
—Carol Gilligan, Ph.D., author of In a Different Voice and The Birth of Pleasure

"Suzanne Braun Levine made me understand why I always envied older women . . . life just gets better—more outrageous, more radical, more passionate, less fraught, wiser, deeper, and kinder."
—Eve Ensler, creator of The Vagina Monologues

"A you-go-girl manual for the menopause crowd."
