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.

Review:

" Sheehy's advice, bolstered with demographic research, group interviews, medical commentary and personal testimony, is tough and wise."
--The New York Times Book Review
" SHEEHY HAS DONE IT AGAIN: engaged in a good deal of research, interviewed many of the right people, and then produced a beautifully readable, very useful guide to important aspects of adult human development. . . . The cumulative mass of her information, observations, and anecdotes is immensely impressive."
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
" Her book will encourage and comfort many men, who--reluctant to confide in their friends or even in their wives--had imagined they were the only ones disheartened and confused by the thorny, arduous path from one stage of life to another."

From the Back Cover:

Her stunning bestsellers Passages and New Passages brilliantly mapped the changes we live through from youth to maturity. Now Gail Sheehy guides contemporary men through the turbulent challenges and surprising pleasures that begin at forty. As a man crosses that threshold, he is bound to ask midlife's most troubling question: Now what? Work anxieties, concerns over sexual potency, marital and family stress, issues of power, all take on new urgency as men contemplate the decades ahead. But as Gail Sheehy reveals in this major new book, midlife is precisely the period when men are most likely to reinvent themselves and become masters of their fate. In Understanding Men's Passages, Sheehy offers all men -- and the women in their lives -- an essential guide to self-discovery.

Hundreds of bold, imaginative men -- celebrities as well as everyday heroes -- share here their most intimate desires, deepest fears, and fervent cravings for renewal. Decade by decade, Sheehy uncovers the real issues facing men today: finding new passion and purpose to invigorate the second half of their lives, dealing with "MANopause, " surviving job change, enjoying post-nesting zest, defeating depression, and learning what keeps a man young.

Informative and inspiring, grounded in fact and full of fascinating life stories, Understanding Men's Passages is a landmark that will take its place beside Gail Sheehy's groundbreaking Passages and New Passages.
