The Secret Life of the Grown-up Brain: The Surprising Talents of the Middle-Aged Mind
There is life after youth!
It is nice to know that life is not over after the start of wrinkles and grey hair. In this youth oriented society it is good to get validated in the belief that those of us in the autumn or even winter of our lives need not fear getting cast aside and relegated to the junk heap! I am in my early seventies and am having a great time! Barbara Strauch has done an amazing amount of research and ...
Broken Children, Grown-Up Pain (Revised): Understanding the Effects of Your Wounded Past
Beacon Hill Press of Kansas City
my review of the Broken Children, Grown-up Pain
This book was good. Because it confirms that with the word of God and faith anyone can change thier old self of sin or mental problems,( bipolarism , depression ect..) into a person who can function as the human being that God intended for them to be. Thus Romans 2:12 be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.

The Death of the Grown-Up: How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization
St. Martin's Griffin
Right On Target - So Direct
It's been quite a while since I read this impressive analysis of one of the underlying causes of the West's current weakness. What she says basically is this: the contemporary consumerist culture that dominates in the US and the other liberal democracies is infantile. The trend bagan in earnest in the 1960's when middle class children were indulged to an extend never seen before in history. One ...

Mean Girls All Grown Up: Surviving Catty and Conniving Women
Some Interesting Material but...
This book really does apply mostly to Christians as its proofs are Christian specific. Should one be of another religion then they will be fairly discombobulated by the author's reliance on scripture as a means for justifying her positions. I don't know Mrs. Dimarco personally, but I am rather certain that she is a member of one of Christianity's more evangelizing wings as there is much here that ...
How to Date Like a Grown-Up: Everything You Need to Know to Get Out There, Get Lucky, or Even Get Married in ...
I LOVE THIS BOOK
I could give a million reasons to read this book. Being a man I'm not the target, but I know women, even hooked my Mom up with the love of her life (and she hadn't dated since she was 19). It is entertaining, motivational and inspirational. If I were a woman over 40, heck under 40, just finding one tip to finding Mr. Right (or Mr. Right Now) would be worth the whole thing. You will find ...
Moral Clarity: A Guide for Grown-Up Idealists (Revised Edition)
Princeton University Press
Inspiration for the cynically weary
This is a terrific book. Reading it, I found myself feeling hopeful and, yes, uplifted -- no small thing considering having lived through the past few decades of Reagan, Clintons, and Bushes. It was a long, slow, careful read, but I think it can be a heart-altering experience, if you take the time. Praise be to Susan Neiman.
