Gail Sheehy's taboo-breaking book about women's menopause, The Silent Passage, was named one of the most influential books of our time by the Library of Congress. Understanding Men's Passages is just as powerful and is certain to change the landscape of the psychology of men. Inspired by her husband's struggle with a midlife career crisis, Sheehy has compiled nearly 10 years worth of interviews and research into this book, revealing the fears and self-doubts of men over 40 who struggle with identity crises both at work and with their partners and children. Sheehy also defines male menopause as a period in which hormones, including testosterone--and therefore potency and sex drive--drop, and men suffer from irritability and mood swings. She cites the statistics that claim more than 52 percent of men between the ages of 40 and 70 can expect some degree of impotence--which translates into at least 20 million men. "When ignored or denied, this sexual freeze extends more deeply into every aspect of a man's life than was previously thought," she writes. "It can be an underlying cause of depression, divorce, even suicide." The men Sheehy interviewed were surprisingly candid about their situations and are glad that they've opened up a discourse. Says one man about the silence regarding sexual changes his father endured during his passage into male menopause: "The only sign of getting older probably was that earlier trip to the bathroom in the morning--which we developmental psychology,gay and lesbian,gender studies,general,health fitness and dieting,men,men's health,mental health,nonfiction,politics and social sciences Men's Health, Random House

The author of the bestselling New Passages and The Silent Passage now turns her perceptive eye on men today -- their problems, their passions, their hunger for renewal. Men over thirty-five today are in turmoil. Few are prepared to change their lives to take advantage of a new second half. Gail Sheehy has talked candidly with hundreds of men about formerly forbidden subjects -- their fears of aging, job dislocation, slackening sex lives, their envy of wives whose careers are gearing up just as theirs are winding down. Gail Sheehy's Passages for Men will be a man's secret friend -- a short, intimate, knowing guide to self-renewal. The stories of celebrities and regular guys who are reinventing their lives offer concrete information as well as inspiration. Every man should read this book -- and every woman will. Among the broad range of issues newly explored in Passages for Men are: -- Looking for your post-career career -- Letting go of a growing son -- The nest is empty -- are you ready for love in the morning? -- His and her retirement fantasies -- Do men have to die earlier than women? -- The male sexual life cycle -- Growing and regenerating the brain -- What do we do with all this leftover life -- Beyond virility-impotence and the midlife passage Understanding Men's Passages: Discovering the New Map of Men's Lives Sheehy, Gail, Random House
