A dynamic and inspiring exploration of the new science that is redrawing the future for people in their forties, fifties, and sixties for the better—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 sociology—as well as her own story of midlife transformation—Hagerty redraws the map for people in midlife and plots a new course forward in understanding our health, our relationships, even our futures.

Professional reviews

"The author's conversational performance makes it easy to engage with the research and personal vignettes she's assembled for this informative audio. The friendly accessibility of her voice brings warmth and humanity to the scientific findings she summarizes. She says unhappiness during the middle years is part of our evolutionary wiring--a time when almost all of us adjust our ambitions, reconcile our disappointments, and take a fresh look at what's important. If we look for the opportunities within us and around us, she says, we can find ways to use our accumulated knowledge, improve our fluid intelligence, and enjoy the riches to be had in loving, supportive relationships. Her poignant stories, in particular, and the heartfelt wisdom they illustrate, make this a relevant and inspirational audio. T.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
