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.
