Hollis was a humanities professor turned Jungian analyst. He has the most amazing citations!

This is a more popular version of Hollis's other book on midlife transitions, The Middle Passage. His insights are pretty sharp, and more than once I have used some of his insights in my own counseling practice. Essentially Hollis says the first half of our live we are trying to deal with the question, "What do I need to do to succeed?" The the second half, we have a new question. "Who am I?" (Apparently this is not just a question for bored twenty-somethings anymore.) Hollis is a Jungian therapist, but he rarely lets that get in the way of work. It feeds his insights, but does not overpower them. Like any "self-help" or self therapy book, some of this is really helpful, and some is not, but when Hollis hits the mark, at least for me, it is a hit worth taking.
