An inspirational and genuinely useful book about how yesterday's Baby Boomers are becoming today's adventurous midlife pioneers, discovering exciting new opportunities for growth in work, play, family, and happiness, by the founding editor of MORE Magazine
About the Author
An editor and writer for 30 years, Susan Crandell has worked on diverse magazines and was a founding editor of MORE and reported on the social revolution this book documents. She's a member of the group she's writing about and introduces the book with her own reinvention story.

Susan's heart is in the right place, but this book does not deliver. I'm really not interested in what she and her rich friends do to amuse themselves. And how many times can the woman manage to mention that she dyes her hair?! As if that was daring! It's truly absurd. I think if the book was titled Crazy Stuff my Rich Friends Have Done During Their Mid-life Crisises, then I might have found it amusing. But my expectation was that I would feel inspired, and I'm definitely not. I strongly recommend that you take a pass on this one.
Don't waste your money on this.
Book is not worth the money.
Hopefully when Obama is fired jobs will reapear.
Some of her heroes are offbeat (a man who found the courage to become a woman, a fitness instructor who turned into a professional Celine Dion impersonator), some predictable (the couple who had a baby in their 50s, the businessman who dropped out to start another business), and some are just plain passionate (like the hair colorist who has turned himself into a true Iron Man). But in each story, Crandell really nails the essence of what makes some of us ripe for reinvention, and how to smooth away the bumps on life's new path. After reading this, I'll never call those turning points anything as dreary as "midlife crises" again.
