About this title


Bemoans the freneticism of everyday life and details how to move away from this lifestyle into a more fulfilling one, outlining inner conflicts that foster this way of life

From Library Journal:

Going nowhere in your career? In your marriage (or your single life)? With your children? On a treadmill financially, sexually, physically? Always striving, never satisfied? As we approach middle age, many of us baby-boom yuppies are finding ourselves in at least one of the above predicaments. Psychotherapist Kinder (co-author of Smart Women, Foolish Choices ) has the solution to this maladie du moment: slow down; accept yourself as you are, not as you think you should be; reclaim your "forgotten" inner self; listen to your inner voice; and shape your life on your own terms. Pop psychology? Indeed. But this is also a wise and compassionate approach to a problem that is becoming all too common. Recommended for public libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90.
