Your Second to Last Chapter (the time in life after children are raised and careers are winding down) offers you a chance to follow the voice in you that is deeper than any religious belief or spiritual path.

Paul Wilkes will be your guide on this journey, with compelling examples (including his own), specific suggestions, and plenty of encouragement. You cannot summon this voice. You can only welcome it by giving it the room to enter your life and then listening to what it is saying to you.

to a new and fulfilling Second to

the best chapter of your life."
