The nine chapters in this book discuss topics such as redefining your life, downsizing, depression, free time, methods of coping, and the sandwich generation. "How to" lists are included in each chapter. A chapter on what not to do is lacking. I highly recommend this excellent, basic, 101 book for empty nesters, and as a preparatory book for those about to become empty nesters. Although written more from a maternal viewpoint, fathers will also glean useful insight.
