Do you belong to the generation of women now teetering on the brink of thirty?
Are you waiting for your real life to begin?
Welcome to the hidden epidemic of facing 30 freak-outs.
Short of the bad aging jokes that await you, few people will give credence to your crisis surrounding the big three-oh. In this wryly sympathetic book, the authors go beyond condescending punch lines to take on the big issues facing women facing thirty. A diverse group of women on the cusp talk about careers, relationships, the inevitable kid question, and dashed dreams. The voices of older women, replete with lots of older sister wisdom, chime in to help envision a life past the big day.
Busting out of their own late-twenties myopia, the authors discovered what those who have faced thirty and flourished already know: The thirtysomething years are bound to be the best years yet.
