A fresh and funny - yet utterly serious - book about men and midlife, from the bestselling author of the EVERY MAN'S BATTLE series, Stephen Arterburn. Written for every man who is in or near midlife, it examines five roles men inhabit throughout their lives - that of He-Man, Son, Husband, Provider, and Father - and shows how God uses those roles to build the qualities that make a truly good man. This practical and encouraging book gives men the tools to make the rest of their lives matter. ^The authors, both in midlife, speak men's language. They're straightforward, not sugarcoating the issues of aging, fear of death, and feelings of loss or failure. They offer hope and show readers how they can live God-honoring, significant lives. This is a book that pastors will want their men's ministries to read, accountability groups will discuss, and wives will buy for their husbands.
"Vulnerable, hugely personal, unconventional, funny, engaging, provocative, unvarnished, sometimes raw, Steve Arterburn gets behind the eyelids and under the skin of men in midlife. Trust me, you won't lose interest."

"Steve Arterburn is the most qualified man I know to speak to the life transitions of men. I have seen him live out the principles of this book with my own eyes and sought, through imitation, to navigate my journey as a man in similar ways. He has never done me wrong as a man. Join me!"
- Kenny Luck, Men's Pastor, Saddleback Church. Author of Every Young Man, God's Man; Risk; Dream; and Fight
"Thanks, Steve and John, for telling us to take a minute, shut off the 'autopilot,' and think about how to live the second half. If more men would do what the book says, the midlife crises would change to the midlife corrections and the second half could be much better than the first!"
- Dr. Henry Cloud, psychologist and author
"Finally there's help for men at that dangerous midlife crossroad in life. Steve Arterburn and John Shore outline for us how a man can make a smooth transition through midlife and avoid the midlife crisis that ruins so many men."
- Dave Stoop, PhD, psychologist and author
"Steve and I have shared many hours together laughing and sharing and reaching out to others. This midlife manual is full of great wisdom and will be a real help to men who want to soar through midlife rather than crash in a crisis."

"The middle years can often be a bewildering and even disappointing time for men. However it doesn't have to be that way. With Steve Arterburn's sound and clear guidance, these can be our best years. Steve combines years of experience in helping others with his own personal authenticity and a solid biblical base. You will be a better person for reading this book."
- Dr. John Townsend, psychologist, author, and speaker
