Booklist Review

The work of a Baby Boomer in his own midlife years, Fortysomething takes special note of Americans born between 1946 and 1964. It is convincingly enthusiastic about the advantages and possibilities of this group, documenting their distinctiveness with intriguing statistics. The book's main focus, the processes and problems of midlife, offers readily accessible information, ideas, and support for readers on either side of that generation. Baby Boomers will, nonetheless, get a special sense of recognition from Goldstein's experiences as well as illustrative "boomer" vignettes. The well-organized and nicely written text thoroughly covers the passage between young to middle adulthood. In addition, strategies to negotiate this hazardous passage, the physical side of aging, illuminating thoughts on work, personal relationships, and passion in living are discussed in upbeat fashion. A valuable look at the aging of America. ~--Virginia Dwyer
