Reviews

The author's previous blockbuster, Passages (LJ 5/15/76), introduced us all to the term "midlife crisis." In this sequel, Sheehy takes us beyond the midlife crisis to examine later life stages, with a short update on young adulthood in the 1990s. In a few ways, this is a better book than its predecessor. Sheehy pays closer attention to the influence of history on the life course of individuals. She also addresses the main criticism that social scientists have made of her work‘that large-scale studies have shown no evidence that most people go through the life stages that she describes‘by explaining that people should go through these "passages" and that everyone who doesn't is "walking dead." These improvements aside, her prose still sounds like that of a second-rate astrologer, her advice is often contradictory, and her adulation of famous personalities verges on embarrassing. Nevertheless, this is a "critic-proof" book‘if you haven't already done so, order multiple copies to satisfy reader demand. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 2/15/95.]‘Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, Wash.

'An optimistic analysis of adult development in pessimistic times... It is grounded in the economic and psychological realities that make adult life so complex today' New York Times Book Review
