At 30... Former vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro was a stay-at-home mother. Founder and CEO of Oxygen Media Geraldine Laybourne was working at a public interest think tank for teachers. Political strategist Mary Matalin was a first-year law student--and about to drop out. And months prior to her thirtieth birthday, financial strategist and best-selling author Suze Orman was working as a waitress, making $400 a month. Decades later, these Boomer women and many others have reached the pinnacles of their professions. So why do Gen-X/Y women feel such pressure to have the perfect career, body, husband, and kids by the time they are at or around 30? Why has 30 become such a make-or-break moment? As the generation that came of age after the most visible glass ceilings had been broken, Gen-X/Y women were raised to believe in futures without limitations. Yet, as journalists Lia Macko and Kerry Rubin reveal in their fascinating investigation, many women have distorted the well-intentioned empowerment messages of their youth and are quietly blaming themselves when they fail to overcome the very real obstacles that still exist in our society. Though many Gen-X/Y women are hitting the same roadblocks at the same time, instead of questioning what's wrong with the system--as Boomer women did in their twenties--they're questioning their own "choices." Searching for solutions, Macko and Rubin have enlisted the aid of the New Girls' Club, a group of successful, satisfied women who've lived through their own crossroads moments, earned their battle scars, and now share their stories and strategies. While today's young women may indeed be a generation in the middle of a Midlife Crisis at 30, they now have a dream team of mentors to help guide them through it.

An einem verschlafenen Sommertag des Jahres 1984 begegnet die junge Holly Sykes einer alten Frau, die ihr im Tausch für «Asyl» einen kleinen Gefallen tut. Jahrzehnte werden vergehen, bis Holly Sykes genau versteht, welche Bedeutung die alte Frau dadurch für ihre Existenz bekommen hat. Die Knochenuhren folgt den Wendungen von Holly Sykes’ Leben von einer tristen Kindheit am Unterlauf der Themse bis zum hohen Alter an Irlands Atlantikküste, in einer Zeit, da Europa das Öl ausgeht. Ein Leben, das gar nicht so ungewöhnlich ist und doch punktiert durch seltsame Vorahnungen, Besuche von Leuten, die sich aus dem Nichts materialisieren, Zeitlöcher und andere kurze Aussetzer der Gesetze der Wirklichkeit. Denn Holly – Tochter, Schwester, Mutter, Hüterin – ist zugleich die unwissende Protagonistin einer mörderischen Fehde, die sich in den Schatten und dunklen Winkeln unserer Welt abspielt – ja, sie wird sich vielleicht sogar als deren entscheidende Waffe erweisen. Metaphysischer Thriller, moralische Betrachtung und Chronik unseres selbstzerstörerischen Handelns – dieser kaleidoskopische Roman mit seiner Vielfalt von Themen, Schauplätzen und Zeiten birst vor Erfindungsreichtum und jener Intelligenz, die David Mitchell zu einem der herausragenden Autoren seiner Generation gemacht hat.

Gibt es ein Leben vor dem Tod? Über die Dinge im Leben, die wirklich wichtig sind ... Die größte Herausforderung für den Menschen ist es, seiner eigenen Sterblichkeit ins Auge zu blicken. Die Angst vor dem Tod unterscheidet den Menschen vom Tier: Jede Religion, jede Kulturleistung ist ein Versuch, sich das Undenkbare begreiflich zu machen. Der amerikanische Psychoanalytiker und Bestsellerautor Irvin D. Yalom nähert sich in diesem Buch einer der größten Fragen der Menschheit sowohl auf der professionellen wie auch auf einer zutiefst persönlichen Ebene. „Auch ich fürchte den Tod wie jeder Mensch“, schreibt Yalom, „er ist unser düsterer Schatten, der sich nicht abschütteln lässt.“ In seiner praktischen Arbeit hat er andererseits erfahren, wie sehr das Wissen um den nahen Tod bei vielen seiner Patienten zu einer vollkommenen Neuorientierung, ja Bereicherung führte. Wie sie auf einmal in der Lage waren, Entscheidungen zu treffen, die ihnen wirklich am Herzen lagen. „In die Sonne schauen“ ist deshalb nicht nur eine Auseinandersetzung mit der Endlichkeit des Lebens, sondern auch ein Plädoyer für ein bewusstes Leben. „Es ist kein düsteres Buch“, so Yalom, „meine Hoffnung ist vielmehr, dass wir begreifen, wie kostbar jeder Moment ist und wie tröstlich unser Miteinander, wenn wir unserer Endlichkeit, unserer kurzen Zeit im Licht, wirklich ins Auge sehen.“

Now in paperback from New York Times reporter Patricia Cohen, a “lively, well-researched chronicle” (The New York Times Book Review) of the concept of middle age, from the nineteenth century to the present. The director behind the Hollywood close-up and the inventor of the “midlife crisis,” the doctors who promised to restore men’s sexual vigor with monkey gland transplants and the neuroscientists mapping the middle-aged brain, the fashion designers and the feminists: They are all part of the fascinating parade of businessmen, entertainers, scientists, and hucksters who have shaped our understanding and experience of middle age. Midlife has swung between serving as a symbol of power and influence and a metaphor for decline, yet the invention and history of this vital period of life have never before been fully told. Acclaimed New York Times reporter Patricia Cohen finally fills the gap with a book that provokes surprise, outrage, and delight. In Our Prime takes readers from turn-of-the-century factories that refused to hire middle-aged men to high-tech laboratories where researchers are unraveling the secrets of the middle-aged mind and body. She traces how midlife has been depicted in film, television, advertisements, and literature. Cohen exposes the myths of the midlife crisis and empty-nest syndrome and investigates antiaging treatments such as human growth hormones, estrogen, Viagra, Botox, and plastic surgery. Exhilarating and empowering, In Our Prime will compel readers to reexamine a topic they think they already know.

Most Americans, and even most seniors, know little or nothing about Medicare and the efforts being made to reform it. In Medicare's Midlife Crisis Sue Blevins examines the program's origins, evolution, and future policy options. She points out that even before Medicare was created in 1965, more than three out of four seniors were protected by a safety net for medical assistance and the average life expectancy for older Americans was on the rise.

More than half a million parents confront the empty nest for the first time each year. It is one of the most challenging phases of parenting, often creating feelings of loss, lack of purpose and crisis of identity which can lead to depression. Yet it receives little recognition. And contrary to popular opinion it doesn't only affect women who've put their careers on hold: working mothers and fathers suffer too. Equally, it can be a period of liberation and discovery of new challenges, when marriages long overstressed by childcare can be rejuvenated. The book will include plenty of people's experiences; expert comment and advice; and there will be a practical strand full of ideas, inspiration, tips etc. There will be a strong focus on the positive as well as how to handle the changing relationship with your children to ensure a fulfilling and good relationship going forward, an area of parenting often ignored.

Joining Dr. Peter Kramer are members of the Mid-Life Crisis Comedy tour. Dr. Ronald Kessler from the MacArthur Foundation Midlife Network tells us that midlife can be the best of times and the worst of times -- it just depends on the gender, the class, and the age of the person you're talking with. Dr. Margie Lachman, a psychologist at the Lifespan Lab at Brandeis University explains that even as mid-lifers start to experience some loss in "the mechanisms of cognition," years of knowledge make them invaluable additions to the workplace. Singer/songwriter Loudon Wainwright III offers a brand-new song touching on the "ancients" at your high school reunion. The Infinite Mind's Jackson Braider tells anxious midlifers that it's okay to worry -- the world of work is indeed fraught with change, with very little benefit to the midlife employee. Finally, centenarian and former Poet Laureate Stanley Kunitz offers a vision of midlife from the vantage point of a lifetime of experience.

Tessa Sanders is a modern-day Calamity Jane. After ten miserable years married to horrid Rupert, Tessa finally decides to leave him. Her exit is made possible following a chance meeting with Major Adam Parker-Hurst, the golf club captain. The major offers her and her five-year-old twin sons, Sam and Freddy, a place to stay at his magnificent country house, Manorbier Estate. Thinking that marriage is eventually on the cards, Tess is miffed to find out that she’s not the only lodger at the house. Simon, a corporal in the local Territorial Army is also a guest, or so it seems; the relationship between the senior officer and his subordinate appears to be a bit too friendly for her liking! To make matters worse, Rupert becomes more of a burden now she’s left him than he ever was when they were together! Put into the pot, her dithery mother and Tess is slowly being torn apart with everything that’s going on! And all this is performed in front of the boys who provided such an innocent background to the entire saga it makes her cry! But when she’d finally managed to get herself on an even keel, even the rivers of tears she’d shed over the boys didn’t compare to what happened in the end. It was the saddest part of her entire life; it was tragic. The reader is taken on a hilarious and very witty roller-coaster ride that exudes a calamity of heartache, agonising sorrow, stupidity, naivety, sleaze, chance, and unbelievable romance; the incredible journey seasoned with large servings of humiliation and disappointment along the way.

More than ever, the aging process is recognized as carrying a special set of emotional challenges–especially when acute or chronic medical conditions are involved. In this light, Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness presents a fresh, contemporary application of psychodynamic theory, addressing the complex issues surrounding declining health. Informed by the spectrum of psychodynamic thought from self, relational, and classical theories, this forward looking volume offers more modern interpretations of theory, and techniques for working with a growing, complicated, but surprisingly resilient population. It illuminates how to enhance the therapeutic relationship in key areas such as addressing body- and self-image issues, approach sensitive topics, and understand the disconnect that can occur between medical patients and the often impersonal, technology-driven health care system. At the same time, the author cogently argues for pluralism in a therapeutic approach that is frequently threatened by forces both within and outside the field. Among the topics covered: Medical illness as trauma. Idealization and the culture of medicine. Normative and pathological narcissism in the ill and/or aging patient. Noncompliant and self-destructive behaviors. Transference and countertransference issues. Psychotherapy with cognitively impaired adults. Grief, loss, and hope. Expanding on what we know and candid about what we don’t, Psychodynamic Perspectives on Aging and Illness offers mental health researchers and practitioners an insightful framework for improving the lives of older patients.
