Finding Meaning, Facing Fears: Living Fully Twixt Midlife and Retirement, by Jerrold Lee Shapiro, is an evocative, inspiring guide to living your best life during your midlife. If you think that reaching middle age, between the ages of 40-65, means that you have to throw in the towel and plop down into your rocking chair, this book is for you. Middle age has its concerns, but this book is about acknowledging those concerns and still moving ahead with new possibilities. This can be the time of your life. Even if you think you know the ropes about this milestone and your retirement, you may just start discovering new things about yourself and heading for a bright future.

This author uses his experience and expertise in clinical psychology to bring you good, solid advice on what to do with this special time in your life. You can face old fears and then face new opportunities. Dr. Shapiro homes in on your relationships, your career, your personal and medical wellbeing, including spiritual growth. If you find yourself at a crossroads in your life, this is the perfect guide to help you decide how to move forward. I love the positive attitude, and the way lots of possibilities are presented, but especially the words of wisdom and advice from those already living in their forties, fifties, and sixties. The variety of views is truly inspiring, especially the ones on socializing and relationships. We all know there are developmental stages in life, and this author helps prepare you for it. Finding Meaning, Facing Fears: Living Fully Twixt Midlife and Retirement by Jerrold Lee Shapiro is your blueprint to growing old gracefully.
