Mid Life Crisis: that period when growing dissatisfactions lead to inevitable questions about the sustainability of our present place in the World and usually accompanied by a sudden encounter with the concept of our own mortality, can lead to a frightening conclusion - "Is this it...?!" Is this ME for the rest of my life...?! The rigours of this time - highly painful periods of personal re-evaluation and an uncompromising test of our true values - can leave us running aground in shallow waters of despair unless we have map and compass. This book provides both. Its world map helps the reader to understand his place in it and the coaching tools provide an opportunity to plot a route home -wherever that might be now. By the end of the book, the world will be a smaller and less frightening place as you find not just a path to understanding yourself better, but also the courage to express yourself authentically and with purpose.

Following up on Crap Cars and My Dad Had One of Those, Top Gear celebrates the midlife crisis with the definitive collection of the flashest, fastest, most impractical cars ever to be found in the driveways of otherwise perfectly sensible men. Drawing on the high level of expertise in this area, Top Gear explores the phenomenon of motoring and the midlife crisis, identifying over 50 classics of the genre across four desperate decades. From Ford Capri to Ferrari Testarossa, it celebrates the flashest, fastest and most ridiculous attempts to cover a bald spot, meanwhile offering a profound insight into the complex psychology of a middle-aged man and his quest for eternal youth. Top Gear's Midlife Crisis Cars both rejoices and recoils at the time-honoured tradition of flushing the children's inheritance on something you're too arthritic to get into in the first place.

The dramas of mid-life are dramas of abandonment and freedom, of highly charged sexual engagements in real time or in fantasy, and of sudden encounters with mortality and loss. The details are as varied as people's lives are diverse but similar themes reappear with unerring regularity over and over in mid-life. It is a time when everything - from the most fundamental questions of identity and meaning to the daily experience of our own bodies and sexuality - is thrown into upheaval, making mid-life transition for many people the most disturbing period since the onset of adolescence.Recognizing that many of us feel, sometimes very much to our surprise, that we have lost our way at mid-life, Polden explores compassionately and sensitively the origins and experiences of mid-life crisis. Regeneration is a fundamentally optimistic book that argues that, while deep-seated changes are often painful, there are great gains to be made at mid-life. By helping readers toward improved self-awareness and a better understanding of the demands and choices of mid-life, Regeneration shows how we can begin to lead lives more truly informed by the values that will serve us best in the second halves of our lives.
