Until seeing the PBS interview of Liz, calmly unapologetically explaining what in the world happened to us I felt a personal shame in not escaping the isms.
I successfully navigated the waters of corporate America and academia, but somehow did not escape the net which caught a number of us in 2009 as we turned into our 60s. Intuitively, I had begun to reinvent myself in a new field before I saw the PBS interview but "seeing me" through Liz mandated I buy the book even before watching Part 2 of the interview. I had no patience for the next day Prime delivery. I ordered the Kindle and read it cover to cover.
The book is a quick, easy, reassuring read. She provides references when stating facts and reporting on study findings For those of us grounded in research that is reassuring and appreciated. When the author imparts her opinion, she states it as such, and the reader can consider that information along with the other sources which include great snippets of others in this situation. It is the most helpful, encouraging self-help book that I have read in YEARS. Thank you, Elizabeth White.
Nice to know you're not alone in moments of despair and panic! Instead of living in denial, better to be proactive and connect with others you can speak with honestly. This book and author helps you to do so. I suggest you also look at her TED Talk and YouTube videos to get further reassurance that you're not alone.
I thoroughly enjoyed the countless resources and valuable reference links. This book also makes a great reference guide as you deal with various life issues and challenges. Most importantly, this book taps into your self talk, whether negative or positive, and prompts you to think and ponder what you want your life to look like and what your next moves can be.
Really enjoyed it and sharing it with everyone I know regardless of their perceived net worth and network! We all can do thorough honest self analysis just by using this book as a guide.
Thank you Elizabeth!!
