"I don't like work anymore. It's not time to retire, but I want to think about what I'll do then. I want to continue to contribute, to know that my life will still matter."

Whether you're like this woman and planning ahead for the next stage of life, or already there, SECOND BLOOMING is the book for you. Tumultuous events of the 1960s and 1970s -- development of The Pill, Civil Rights and Women's Movements, Title IX, and the Roe V. Wade decision -- mean women are living in a changed landscape, treading new ground as a "transitional generation" with few role models or guidelines.

SECOND BLOOMING provides the benefits of a personal coach, helping you maximize your opportunities while minimizing the pitfalls. An inspiring but practical process guides you to picture, plan, and grow a purposeful life. You'll embrace the second half of life with optimism, self understanding, and enthusiasm. Engaging, real-life stories throughout will connect you to the millions of other women who are also cultivating their life's garden. And your reward? No regrets. No "if only" wishes. Instead, you'll celebrate a life well-lived and be able to say, "My life matters."

From Publishers Weekly:

Logan and Smith know life's a series of new beginnings, and when a woman turns 50, she can either put her head in the sand or plant new seeds in better soil. The latter requires hard work, and these cheerful authors offer some sound suggestions in this no-nonsense guide. Using a refreshing, sometimes humorous gardening theme (e.g., Women's Growing Zones: Zone 1 Baby/Child, Selfish, "I want to"; Zone 2 Adult Woman, Responsible, "I have to"; and Zone 3 Women After 50, Purposeful, "I choose to") Smith and Logan offer advice, including online and print resources with additional information baby boomers will savor as they reach 50 and beyond. Among the practical tips: listen to music, keep a gratitude journal à la Oprah, speak positively, give and accept compliments graciously, and develop affirmations. Ideas for activities that most self-help fans will enjoy are included, most notably how to create an "action plan."
