"Sheehy’s advice, bolstered with demographic research, group interviews, medical commentary and personal testimony, is tough and wise."
–The New York Times Book Review
"SHEEHY HAS DONE IT AGAIN: engaged in a good deal of research, interviewed many of the right people, and then produced a beautifully readable, very useful guide to important aspects of adult human development. . . . The cumulative mass of her information, observations, and anecdotes is immensely impressive."
–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Her book will encourage and comfort many men, who–reluctant to confide in their friends or even in their wives–had imagined they were the only ones disheartened and confused by the thorny, arduous path from one stage of life to another."
