I enjoyed this book primarily because I always like to read personal stories of people reinventing themselves. The book is set up to be a series of personal stories/essays, with short quotes and passages where each person talks about her success strategy, the most important thing that she learned, the thing she felt she did right, the most surprising thing about her reinvention, and key questions that you should ask yourself before embarking on your reinvention (normally along the lines of ensuring that you have the financial resources, support, enough willpower to get through the bad times, whether you can take chances, etc.). Most of the women featured are in their 40s or 50s, but I think people of all ages would benefit from reading this.

A large portion of the stories focus on career changes, ranging from the standard (chef) to the more unusual (beekeeper). The stories typically explain why the woman wasn't happy with her current situation, what inspired her to change it, the process of changing, and the end result. Other stories focused more on personal changes, such as becoming a triathlete. I would have actually liked to see more stories where a career change wasn't the primary focus, but I understand that that's one of the main things people do to reinvent themselves.

The end of the book contains tips on planning a reinvention, dealing with surprises that you may encounter while transitioning, and preparing your finances. This is just a small portion of the book though, as most of it focuses on the personal stories, so if you're not looking to read many of those personal stories, this book is probably not the best choice. If you are looking for inspiration from others who have succeeded in reinventing themselves though, this is a good read.

I ordered this book as I've reached that turning point in my own life where i feel the pull in another direction, but i just don't quite know what it is. I had hoped i could relate to the stories and maybe gain insight into how to make that big leap of fate. Unfortunately, I couldn't quite relate as most of the ladies in the book were quite successful in the business world and had a good cash flow to make the jump. The stories started sounding all the same and i eventually skimmed through the rest and put it in the bag for the next yard sale. The intention of the book is great and i'm sure will be inspiring for others.

I love this book. As someone who is reinventing my life right now it gave practical advice. I loved the success stories. I also liked that it was geared to the more mature person. So many of these books are written for people in their 20 s. this was written with those of s who are a bit more seasoned in mind. Love it.
