Are you going through your life on autopilot? Are you doing the day-to-day things that need to be done, but not doing what your heart is telling you to do? Finding the Wow is the uplifting story of a mom who realizes that she's not happy, just busy. When MJ and her friends-the Chicks in Charge-fight to redefine their second acts, they discover their strengths as they face their individual challenges-a failing marriage, long-forgotten dreams, and illness. MJ shares her own moments, harrowing and wonderful, great and small, on her journey to becoming a pilot. On these pages, you will find tales of humor, tragedy, excitement, disappointment, vulnerability, and the friendship of the invincible Chicks who battle obstacles, find courage, and triumph! Like the Chicks, you may find purpose in unexpected ways. But whatever your airplane is, fly it!

Philosophical wisdom and practical advice for overcoming the problems of middle age How can you reconcile yourself with the lives you will never lead, with possibilities foreclosed, and with nostalgia for lost youth? How can you accept the failings of the past, the sense of futility in the tasks that consume the present, and the prospect of death that blights the future? In this self-help book with a difference, Kieran Setiya confronts the inevitable challenges of adulthood and middle age, showing how philosophy can help you thrive. You will learn why missing out might be a good thing, how options are overrated, and when you should be glad you made a mistake. You will be introduced to philosophical consolations for mortality. And you will learn what it would mean to live in the present, how it could solve your midlife crisis, and why meditation helps. Ranging from Aristotle, Schopenhauer, and John Stuart Mill to Virginia Woolf and Simone de Beauvoir, as well as drawing on Setiya’s own experience, Midlife combines imaginative ideas, surprising insights, and practical advice. Writing with wisdom and wit, Setiya makes a wry but passionate case for philosophy as a guide to life.

Fighting midlife inertia, Sherry Stanfa-Stanley chose to stare down fear through The 52/52 Project: a year of weekly new experiences designed to push her far outside her comfort zone. These ranged from visiting a nude beach with her seventy-five-year-old mother in tow to taking a road trip with her ex-husband—and then another one with his girlfriend. She also went on a raid with a vice squad and SWAT team, exfoliated a rhinoceros (inadvertently giving him an erection), and crashed a wedding (where she accidentally caught the bouquet). While finding her courage in the most unlikely of circumstances, Sherry ultimately found herself. For midlifers, fatigued parents, and anyone who may be discontent with their life and looking to shake things up, try new things, or just escape, Finding My Badass Self is proof it's never too late to reinvent yourself—and that the best bucket list of all may be an unbucket list.

He quit his job, abandoned his wife, and checked in at the Nirvana Casino. In Michael Konik’s darkly satirical debut novel, an American Humbert Humbert is overwhelmed by fantasies of becoming a Vegas big shot. Dubbed the “Dean of the World’s Gambling Writers,” Konik is a former Cigar Aficionado gaming columnist and TV poker analyst. The best-selling author of three acclaimed gambling-story collections, including The Man with the $100,000 Breasts, he brings his vast knowledge of the casino world to the pages of this viciously funny (and strangely inspiring) evisceration of our modern aspirational lifestyle.

Jane Pauley, “America’s baby boomer” (Tom Brokaw) and the new anchor of CBS Sunday Morning, offers an inspirational guidebook “chockablock with keen insights for career transitions” (USA TODAY). In 2014, every baby boomer will have reached the milestone age of fifty. For most, it’s not an end, but the beginning of something new. Research has shown that people in their fifties are more vital now than they were only ten years ago. They’re saying, “I’m game, I’m up for it, I want to do more.” Jane Pauley, one of America’s most beloved and trusted broadcast journalists, offers humor and insight about the journey forward. The New York Times bestseller Your Life Calling is a fresh look at ideas that have been simmering since boomers first entered midlife with a different perspective on the future than any generation before: that there was more to come—and perhaps the best of all. Jane is not an advice giver but a storyteller. Here she tells her own and introduces readers to the fascinating people she has featured on her award-winning Today show segment, “Life Reimagined Today.” You’ll meet Betsy McCarthy, who traded in her executive briefcase for knitting needles; Gid Pool, who launched a career as a stand-up comic; Richard Rittmaster, who joined the National Guard Chaplain Corps; Trudy Lundgren, who took her home on the road in an RV; Paulie Gee, who opened a successful pizzeria in Brooklyn; and many more. “Jane Pauley is a wonderful guide to all the different ways you can open new doors in life, many of which lead to unexpected places. She shows with humor and insight why the journey to reinvention can come from all kinds of places and produce all kinds of joys” (Michael J. Fox). Your Life Calling is delightful, compelling, and motivating for anyone asking “What am I going to do with my supersized life?”
