While many books address the issues that arise for people in their thirties and forties, little has been written about the unique challenges, joys, and fears that individuals encounter in their fifties. What can those in their fifties or those approaching that age expect from this time? What can they do to make the most of these years? In Our Fifties shows that this age is not simply a time to prepare for "endings" but a vibrant period of new beginnings, a time for reevaluation, reinvention, and development. Through extensive interviews with people in their fifties and through insights from personal experience, the authors offer a unique and thorough look at the lives of men and women in this age group - their evolving self images, their changing relationships with their families, spouses, or lovers, and their maturing view of the world at large.
