Similar to Necessary Losses, Gould's Transformations clearly delineates how childhood consciousness and "demonic" feelings influence our adult life, and the false assumptions that we carry into adulthood, and must give up as we navigate our 20s, 30s and 40s. He discusses over a dozen assumptions (and sub-assumptions) - such as my parents will always protect me, or that evil does not exist or the universe rewards virtue and hard work -that we usually have to confront and relinquish as we come to terms with different stages of the life cycle.

Going far beyond other books on what have come to be called the predictable changes in adult life; this book not only describes those crises and changes, but also explains why they are predictable and how we can cope with them creatively.
