Although it was written by a woman, it is clear that she really understands her subject matter. The book is filled with understanding, compassion and practical advice. She talks about being a seeker, not a dropout.

You go on a crash diet, and dream about starting over, being free. Does any of this sound familiar to you? All of these quick fixes are ways in which some men deal with coming face to face with their own mortality, more commonly known as midlife crisis. It’s not easy to realize that we are all mortal. We start to panic, thinking there is little time left to finish out all the things that we wanted to do in our lives.

my husband said it was very good...

I'm having a mid life crisis now and been reading up a lot of related researches and books on this subject. There are not that many good books on this topic and this is one of the best I can find. What's even more amazing is it was written in 1978 and its prognosis and solutions are still relevant in 2009. The main points in this book:
- mid life crisis happens to everyone, from successful CEOs to blue collar people. It even happens to university presidents and ministers!
- it has many recommendations, from personal re-examinations of our priorities to explorations of future possibilities.
- our society needs to change our values in terms of how we live and define success, and our government should offer concrete help: e.g. portable pension plan, life-long free educations, mid-life career switch, etc. Because the crisis happens to everyone and affect everyone in our increasingly aging society.

This is a very good and well-researched book. Although it was written by a woman, it is clear that she really understands her subject matter. The book is filled with understanding, compassion and practical advice. It explains why men start acting like adolescents again, what they are really seeking and how to find it. It is an informative and entertaining read and maintains a freshness because it addresses a life stage that is universal and part of the human condition no matter how things have changed since it was written. I got a lot of useful information and comfort from it.

I've found that most 'self help' books are full of quite a bit of fluff, but this one has a considerable amount of good advice in it. It seems that the author, a woman, is a very good researcher and that despite the fact that it was written two decades ago, the subject itself is really timeless. She talks about the ways that men commonly handle midlife changes and - though she seems to understand and feel for the plight of middle age men - offers suggestions on how to deal with the root problems that can make men behave like kids again. She talks about being a seeker, not a dropout. She talks about attitudes being more important than actions. She talks about how a midlife journey can be taken in the mind, not necessary requiring geographical or even career changes. I'm forty one this year, and this book contained a lot of stuff that made sense.
