Submitter: Ironically, I turn 40 in three months. I found this just in time! The chapter headings for Middle 40s men are my favorite part.
Holly: Mary totally missed the boat on this book. If only someone had told her this was available! Ha!
Maybe this is just my perception, and I’m only 36, but in 1976, turning 40 was a bigger deal than it seems to be now. A book about going from 50 to 60, or even 60 to 70 could cover these same concepts. People work longer, have kids later in life, get married older, are healthier, live longer…all of that makes 60 the new 40.
Mary: Hey, get off my lawn!
