Midlife: A Philosophical Guide
Princeton University Press
"Written with charming simplicity and wry humor, Midlife is a philosophically rich source of what might be called 'the higher life hacks' – reflective ways of dissolving the sense of emptiness and regret that tends to hit each of us with the onset of middle age. A work of disarming wisdom." – Jim Holt, author of Why Does the World Exist?
"Instructive and consoling." – Joshua Ferris, author of Then We Came to the End
"A delightful amalgam of self-help and intellectual inquiry." – Economist
"A concise, entertaining and humane guide through life's most difficult territory." – Spectator
"A model for how to write philosophy clearly and non-technically without lapsing into banality or truism ... warm, lucid, and sane." – Times Higher Education
"There is genuine wisdom here ... a wonderful book." – LA Review of Books
