So much of what passes for popular culture in America encourages us to remain in perpetual adolescence. And those who urge us to be "mature" so often seem dull, serious and sad. These pages, on the other hand, are full of the grace, humor and wisdom that come from embracing the years as they come. There's a fascinating chapter on the seven-year cycles of life that goes far beyond Gail Sheehy's "Passages" -- and the pages of the book are sprinkled with specially-formatted quotes that will stick with you for days, gathering new meaning and significance over time.
