About the Author

Mark Gerzon's role as chronicler of the postwar generation's journey began with his 1969 best-seller, The Whole World Is Watching. Designated the "weathervane of the baby-boom generation" by the Boston Globe , he is also the author of A Childhood for Every Child, A Choice of Heroes, and A House Divided: Six Belief Systems Struggling for America's Soul. He leads midlife workshops nationwide with his wife, Shelley Kessler.


"An empathetic guide, Gerzon shines a light for the legion of baby boomers struggling to find their way through "the forest dark" of midlife. . . . Listening directs us to the inner compass that points at last toward home."-- Publishers Weekly

"Those lucky enough to read Mark Gerzon's book will get a chance to reflect on a finer view of things. In an extremely readable style that is full of the evidence supplied by personal life-stories, the author argues his position well. . . . This is a true quest for the only possible fountain of youth."-- Journal of Religion and Health "Middle-agers whose lives are in need of a kick in the pants should follow their noses to this book. Gerzon brings enthusiasm and a joyous voice to those dreading the second half of their lives."-- Booklist "A book that will open doors for many, teaching us how not to be trapped by life's most inevitable pitfalls."--M. Scott Peck, author of The Road Less Traveled "The map of the human journey Mark Gerzon draws will help you find your way through the wilderness into the clearing and put you on the road toward home."--Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly "Mark Gerzon explodes the myth of midlife from crisis to quest: an exciting time of deep growth and exploration. Through the midlife stories of both ordinary people and those who have achieved fame, Gerzon brings good news."--Maureen Murdock, author of The Heroine's Journey
