SYNOPSIS : A dynamic and inspiring exploration of the new science that is redrawing the future for people in their forties, fifties, and sixties for the betterβ€”and for good. There’s no such thing as an inevitable midlife crisis, Barbara Bradley Hagerty writes in this provocative, hopeful book. It’s a myth, an illusion. New scientific research explodes the fable that midlife is a time when things start to go downhill for everybody. In fact, midlife can be a great new adventure, when you can embrace fresh possibilities, purposes, and pleasures. In Life Reimagined, Hagerty explains that midlife is about renewal: It’s the time to renegotiate your purpose, refocus your relationships, and transform the way you think about the world and yourself. Drawing from emerging information in neurology, psychology, biology, genetics, and sociologyβ€”as well as her own story of midlife transformationβ€”Hagerty redraws the map for people in midlife and plots a new course forward in understanding our health, our relationships, even our futures. From the Hardcover edition.

SYNOPSIS : β€œRelax! The horror stories you have heard about adolescence are false.” This is Dr. Laurence Steinberg’s reassuring message to parents in this newly revised edition of his classic book You and Your Adolescent, which Publishers Weekly says is β€œfilled with solid advice for the parents of adolescents.” Among the new topics in this updated edition: * An expanded definition of adolescence to age 25, recognizing that college graduates often remain dependent on their parents for an extended period, creating a new parent-child dynamic * A discussion of social media that addresses whether parents of preteens and young teens should monitor use of these new communication tools * What new research into the adolescent brain tells us about teenage behavior As Dr. Steinberg writes, β€œMost books written for parents of teenagers were survival guides (many still are). Nowadays, adolescence is too longβ€”15 years in some familiesβ€”for mere survival. Knowledge, not fortitude, is what today’s parents need. That’s where this book comes in.”
