Seven years ago she set out to write a sequel, but instead she discovered a historic revolution in the adult life Seven years ago she set out to write a sequel, but instead she discovered a historic revolution in the adult life cycle. People are taking longer to grow up and much longer to die. A fifty-year-old woman—who remains free of cancer and heart disease— can expect to see her ninety-second birthday.

The old demarcations and descriptions of adulthood—beginning at twenty-one and ending at sixty-five—are hopelessly out of date. Stop and recalculate, Sheehy writes. Imagine the day you turn forty-five as the infancy of another life. Instead of declining, men and women who embrace a Second Adulthood are progressing through entirely new passages into lives of deeper meaning, renewed playfulness, and creativity—beyond both male and female menopause.
Through hundreds of personal and group interviews, national surveys of professionals and working-class people, and fresh findings extracted from fifty years of U. Census reports, Sheehy vividly dramatizes these newly developing stages. Combining the scholars ability to synthesize data with the novelists gift for storytelling, she allows us to make sense of our own lives by understanding others like us. New Passages tells us we have the ability to customize our own life cycle. This groundbreaking work is certain to awaken and permanently alter the way we think about ourselves.
It is grounded in the economic and psychological realities that make adult life so complex today. This time is necessary for searching and sorting links.
