I fortunately live in a social community where change is constant along with related growth and hoped the book would deal with the challenges of the 'third chapter' as opposed to telling stories of bravery and discovery by people who have had narrow lives, like the author, and then branch out.
I am sorry I bought this book and when I went to resell it at Green Apple they said they did not even want it.
Interesting look at the transition to retirement portion of ones life. A good portion of the text delt with individuals prior to retirement.
Many of the subjects interviewed for the book were either quite neurotic, had under developed personalities, or were stuck in the past making the book "not helpful" in balance.
I am near retirement and my sister just retired. I had hoped to read this book (recommended to me by a friend) and share it with my sister. I was disappointed.
