There’s no such thing being an inevitable midlife crisis, Barbara Bradley Hagerty writes with this provocative, hopeful book. It’s a myth, an illusion. New scientific research explodes the fable that midlife is often a time when things will go downhill for anyone. In fact, midlife could be a great new adventure, when you can actually embrace fresh possibilities, purposes, and pleasures.
In Life Reimagined, Hagerty explains that midlife is approximately renewal: It’s enough time to renegotiate your life purpose, refocus your relationships, and transform the method that you think about the world and yourself. Drawing from emerging information in neurology, psychology, biology, genetics, and sociology—as well as her very own story of midlife transformation—Hagerty redraws the map for folks in midlife and plots a different course forward understand our health, our relationships, even our futures.
