Reviews

As one grows older and life's choices seem to diminish, it's easy to regret the roads not taken, which then lead to an inability to embrace your life as it is now. A remedy can be found in Johnson and Ruhl's wonderfully insightful, possibly even life-changing book. Jungian psychologists and the co-authors of Contentment, Johnson and Ruhl believe the roads-not-taken needn't be cast aside; they can-and must-be integrated into present-day life and used to find new opportunities for fulfillment and wholeness. How? By engaging in what the authors refer to as "active imagination"-a disciplined, spiritual form of inner dialogue. The book is intelligent, refreshingly free of psychobabble and best of all heralds the power of the imagination to transform and possibly keep you out of trouble. (Oct.)

These different guides for getting the most out of life target America's myriad aging baby boomers. Jungian expert Johnson (We: Understanding the Psychology of Romantic Love) and clinical psychologist Ruhl use case studies, Greek myths, and Jungian archetypes to assist readers in becoming more attuned to the movements of the subconscious world, then in harnessing the power of those movements and incorporating them into everyday life. Viewing midlife as an opportunity, the authors provide exercises for self-examination and interpretation. The first step toward wholeness is coming to grips with failed hopes, paths not taken, and bad habits so they may be understood and used to spur future growth. Geared toward college-educated readers with a psychology bent; recommended for larger libraries. Race You to the Fountain of Youth is, as might be expected, a humorous look at the everyday challenges of aging. Bolton, a former writer for Bob Hope, and Dickson, a past monolog writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, offer chapters like "How To Calculate Your Real Age" and "Why Exercise Sometimes Doesn't Work." The authors point out the upside of living to 100 (your number will finally be called at the DMV) and the signs of getting older (watching Grey's Anatomy just to jot down symptoms). Sure to be a big hit with the 50-plus crowd; highly recommended for all libraries. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
