Publisher's Summary

The choices we make in our middle years contribute to the quality of the rest of our lives. Those that served us well in the first half of life may not work for us in the second.

Dr. Hardin, founder and director of Midlife Consulting Services, wove together research, personal experiences, stories, and exercises to show how to live and age well. She wrote the book when she was in midlife herself. Now at 85, she says she is finding life richer and more fulfilling than she thought possible. She encourages us to embrace our aging; unexpected joys await.

Thought Provoking and full of Wisdom!

What Are You Doing with the Rest of Your Life by Paula Payne Hardin is both thought provoking and full of wisdom. As someone in middle-age, many points struck home with me. I really enjoyed this author's writing style and content. I found the narration by Kelley Hazen was perfect. She added to my enjoyment of this book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. Typically I listen to romance, mystery, or thriller books, but every so often I step outside my typical genres, and I am so glad I listened to this book. I loved the insights the author wrote and will listen to this again. I definitely will listen to more books by this author and narrator.

An Awesome Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it uplifting. As I'm approaching this era in my own life, I could relate to many of the stories included in this book. It made me look at my own life and see what I could do to perhaps enhance it, not only for myself but those around me. I have out lived many of my own family, but I would like to age with grace and continue to help those around me. I think I may have found the perfect guide to help me accomplish just that. Very interesting and easy to listen too .
