Exceptionally well written, impressively informative, exceptionally well organized and presented, "Midlife Maze: A Map to Recovery and Rediscovery after Loss" is as thoughtful and thought-provoking as it is inspired and inspiring. Thoroughly accessible for the non-specialist general reader, and having extraordinary value for academia as well, "Midlife Maze" is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library collections. * Midwest Book Review * Janis Clark Johnston's professional life as a psychologist and therapist as well as her personal experiences of loss have prepared her well to guide the reader through the depths, challenges, and ultimate opportunities that accompany loss in midlife. Combining scholarship with practical advice at every turn (a key inspiring concept), Johnston offers the reader a needed helping hand through life's inescapable losses. -- Thelma Reese, EdD, author, with Barbara Fleisher, of The New Senior Woman: Reinventing the Years Beyond Mid-Life; blogsite: In Midlife Maze, Dr. Johnston identifies the inevitable losses which accumulate in the course of our lives, and reframes this potential victimage as a challenge to replenishment, renewal, and redefinition. Moving from a recipient position to one who constructs a new life, and develops new resources, recovers one's autonomy in the presence of loss. -- James Hollis, PhD, Jungian analyst, Washington, D. C.; author, Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life
