Inventing the Rest of Our Lives : Women in Second Adulthood 

There’s a quote that you may have seen that goes something like this:  "Every day do something that scares you." It’s attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt.   In the first chapter of this book the author, Suzanne Braun Levine, describes how one fine day what she did that scared her was not rappelling off a ninety-foot cliff, which she did.  It was saying No when she was told to go back up.  Saying No was the unexpected thing to do.  Saying No was brave.  Saying No delineated her independence.  Her gesture was breathtaking, liberating, hilarious!

Who can resist a book that starts out like that?  That’s why, even though I’m only on page 93 of this 242 page volume I recommend you take a look at it.  I don’t think we’ll be disappointed.
