Understanding Men's Passages
Discovering the New Map of Men's LivesBook - 1998
The author of the bestselling New Passages and The Silent Passage now turns her perceptive eye on men today -- their problems, their passions, their hunger for renewal. Men over thirty-five today are in turmoil. Few are prepared to change their lives to take advantage of a new second half. Gail Sheehy has talked candidly with hundreds of men about formerly forbidden subjects -- their fear of aging, job dislocation, slackening sex lives, their envy of wives whose careers are gearing up just as theirs are winding down. ¸ Must men give up power as they get older? ¸ How does male sexual potency change from age 30 to 70? ¸ Why should you be afraid of male menopause? ¸ Who survives job loss in middle life? ¸ Gender Crossover -- Crisis or Comfort? ¸ Do men have to die earlier than women? The stories of celebrities and regular guys who are reinventing their lives offer concrete information as well as inspiration. Gail Sheehy's Passages for Men will be a man's secret friend -- a short, intimate, knowing guide to self-renewal. And every woman will find it a must-read.
