I had to buy her book because it was included in one of my Human Development courses.I appreciate her research work about how people are coping with longevity. I also appreciate that she included her own experiences. However her book is actually about a term that she boasts she has coined and is the first one to use it and the word is " second adulthood". She is a journalist ,she must admit that she was influenced by other people's researches and tried to rephrase their idea by giving it a new term.The second adulthood also does not make sense.If you have heard thE TED TALK ,"When do we really become an adult", you will not disagree with me.
Joan Erickson and Erick Erickson were working on this theory,he died in 1994 but she carried on his work about the ninth stage in human life,
There is a theory of gero transcendece by a Swedish gerontologist by the name of Lars Tornstam .He had been working on the theory for two decades and was awarded in 2006 for his services I enjoyed the real work by a person who actually conceived it.Don't waste your money on this one .Buy the original work ,Dr.Lars Tornstam's book. You will be amazed.

This update of Sheehy's ealier work is timely and well done. She reflects the fact that roles assigned to women and men are becoming more fluid, and that our improved health and vitality has made it possible to have meaningful and productive lives throughout our entire lives, that life is not over at 60.

A good book, particularly if readers enjoyed the first Passages publication and have some knowledge of Sheehy's career.
This was just what I needed to read after turning 50! She put words to my feelings that I couldn't explain or identify.
