Clinical psychologist Mary Pipher assesses the challenges and opportunities women face as they age. Pipher revolutionized thinking about teenage girls in her classic Reviving Ophelia. She offers fewer psychological analyses of aging and more case histories in this supportive, accessible read for women dealing with ageism, caregiving and various financial, familial and health crises. Most older women don’t want advice on fixing their lives. Pipher avoids that trap while encouraging forward momentum, coming to terms with any new limitations – and cultivating an enduring sense of joy despite it all.
