There's no such thing as an inevitable midlife crisis, Barbara Bradley Hagerty writes in this provocative, hopeful book. It's a myth, an illusion. New scientific research explodes the fable that midlife is a time when things start to go downhill for everybody. In fact, midlife can be a great new adventure, when you can embrace fresh possibilities, purposes, and pleasures.
In Life Reimagined, Hagerty explains that midlife is about renewal: It's the time to renegotiate your purpose, refocus your relationships, and transform the way you think about the world and yourself. Drawing from emerging information in neurology, psychology, biology, genetics, and sociology - as well as her own story of midlife transformation - Hagerty redraws the map for people in midlife and plots a new course forward in understanding our health, our relationships, even our futures.

Ms. Hagerty's book is a study in science and art and get to it-ness. Best phrase of the book is "auto-pilot equals death" and I see evidence of it in my fellow middle aged travelers- myself included. Grateful for her sharing the research and personal stories that make this book a must listen.

Easy listen that has helped me grow
Barbra Bradley Hagerty does a great job of clearly explaining the complex issues facing those of us in the middle of life. She made it clear she is a religious person, but didn't push that on the listener at all. I was most impressed by how many sources she used to make her points, it was much more than just "this is what I did," but a real report of insightful information she studied. She backed up some of the concepts with her own experiences. She identifies her sources making it easier to do further investigation on topics that were interesting to you. I've already started listening to books written by her sources.
Her voice and reading style made it very easy to listen to.
I cannot think of one person who would not benefit from listening to this enjoyable book!
