Over The Hump: Three Books To Help You Through A Midlife Crisis

Normally, I enjoy buying books at my local bookstore, but I opted to have my copy of The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife delivered to my doorstep from Amazon — for the same reason that people once transported their pornography in brown paper bags. This slim volume will never make a summer beach read list; no, you need to be slogging through some serious soul-searching in order to get through it, but you'll be glad you experienced its bracing tough love.
