Publishers Description
What does it really mean to be a grown up in today's world? We assume that once we "get it together" with the right job, marry the right person, have children, and buy a home, all is settled and well. But adulthood presents varying levels of growth, and is rarely the respite of stability we expected. Turbulent emotional shifts can take place anywhere between the age of thirty-five and seventy when we question the choices we've made, realize our limitations, and feel stuck-- commonly known as the "midlife crisis." Jungian psycho-analyst James Hollis believes it is only in the second half of life that we can truly come to know who we are and thus create a life that has meaning. In Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life, Hollis explores the ways we can grow and evolve to fully become ourselves when the traditional roles of adulthood aren't quite working for us, revealing a new way of uncovering and embracing our authentic selves. Offering wisdom to anyone facing a career that no longer seems fulfilling, a long-term relationship that has shifted, or family transitions that raise issues of aging and mortality, Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life provides a reassuring message and a crucial bridge across this critical passage of adult development.

Raves from one who doesn't read "self-help"  Sep 12, 2008
I'm 54 (in the second half of life) and I generally do not read "self-help", spiritually inclined books. I picked up Hollis' work at the beloved Powell's in PDX months ago and have just finished it, reading a bit here and there over time, jotting some notes in a journal as I went. Wonderfully insightful and helpful for me it was as I yearn for more solid second-half-of-life meaning beyond career and societal niche. I loved his kind, literary writing voice and the sense that Hollis has helped himself and many others find their ways to deeper truths.
The luxury of finding meaning  Aug 25, 2008
At a time when many of us are constrained by potential or real economic pressures, it's difficult to envision breaking out of constricting roles and living freely into our soul's passion and wisdom.
BUT, I have been wrestling...and blessed by this book. I particularly resonated with the section on making "deals" with God and the universe (pp 83-84). Big deal maker and prayer chatterer that I am...thinking that perhaps if I distract God, my shortcomings will be overlooked...some of my most painful and profound learnings have been around trying to give up my magical thinking.
We Need To Find Meaning  Aug 14, 2008
I buy every book by Jim Hollis and attend his lectures because he makes my life bigger and better. This excellent book helped me to grow up and out and take responsibility for my life as we all must do! His beautiful word choices and description of our inner worlds makes me feel like my life is my partner and let me tell you how I love to dance with my partner.

You can never go wrong with a book written by the esteemed Dr. Hollis.

One of the clearest Jungian exposés that exists.  Mar 28, 2008
As someone who has studied Jung for a great deal of their adult life, I find this to be an exceptional book. Many terms that other authors attempt to describe such as psyche, ego, transference, etc., are really very difficult to follow. Hollis does an exceptional job in breaking Jungian terms open for the reader. Of course, this does not say that it is a particularly easy read as I believe the book is probably most beneficial for someone who has studied psychology somewhat, even if on his or her on. The most amazing part of the book (for me) is that the author really speaks to the crisis of mid-life. As someone who feels as though he has just faced this :) the book was most helpful not in telling me what to do, but rather the questions that I need to reflect on to live a fuller life in the second half of life. I have recommended this book to others as well. I look forward to reading Dr. Hollis' other books as this was my first.
Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life  Mar 20, 2008
Can not really say much about this yet. Catching up on everything else I've had started. Bought this book on the advise of a well trusted friend.
