From Misery to Meaning in Midlife
Why do so many go through so much disruption in their middle years? Why then? Why do we consider it a crisis?
The Middle Passage presents us with an opportunity to reexamine our lives and to ask: "Who am I apart from my history and the roles I have played?" It is an occasion for redefining and reorienting the personality, a necessary rite of passage between the extended adolescence of the first adulthood and our inevitable appointment with old age and mortality.
This book shows how we many travel the Middle Passage consciously, thereby rendering our lives more meaningful and the second half of life immeasurably richer.
