The Breaking Point
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'[The Breaking Point] suggests that the national conversation is about to have a hot flash. The passage through middle age of so large a clump of women . . . guarantees that some rules may have to be rewritten and boundaries moved to accommodate them.' -Time magazine From the cover of Time to Desperate Housewives, the phenomenon of women in midlife experiencing a period of tumultuous personal upheaval-a breaking point-has reached a peak in our culture. Today, more than 15 million baby boomer women report having a midlife crisis compared to 14 million men. In The Breaking Point, Wall Street Journal columnist Sue Shellenbarger looks beyond the numbers to discover the root of all this angst and examine the ways, both successful and not, that women are navigating this crucial transition period. Drawing on original research data and interviews with more than fifty women, The Breaking Point uses real-life stories to illustrate the different archetypes and modes the course of reinvention follows. The book also shows women how to avoid the pitfalls of a midlife meltdown-ruined relationships and jettisoned careers-and instead transform this turbulent time into a period of personal growth that will enrich the rest of their lives. Once every decade or so a book comes along that defines the collective experience of an entire generation. Provocative, insightful, and resonant, The Breaking Point is just such a book. 'Every once in a while you read a book that transforms you. Like the shift of a kaleidoscope, it reconfigures your view of life's journey. This is such a book. It may stimulate you to change directions, perhaps even enable you to find life's greatest joy: fulfillment. An invigorating read.' -Helen Fisher, author of Why We Love 'This catchy work is tailor-made for the 36 percent of women who will eventually have what they regard as midlife crises' . . . an illuminating guide.' -Publishers Weekly

Midlife Experiences: Not Necessarily a Crisis
11,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The works of poetry created in this book by Darryl Leslie is the collection of his expressions and his life's journey as an ordinary man doing extraordinary things. We all may have the creative capability to impact the lives of others in our surroundings in a good way or bad, from time to time, whether knowingly or not. Midlife Experiences takes you on a journey through the life of this Author, during his childhood, marriage, divorce, crisis, and fulfillment. Midlife Experiences (Not necessarily a Crisis), is a brief flash fire of some crisis and some inspiring moments, particularly over the past few years of his life and just some of the everyday joys of life that were right in his face, that we all sometimes took for granted. This book shares some of these experiences to dissect what he went through, how he handled them, and how God can use those situations to inspire others to keep on pushing through their adversities.
