about this book

Based on interviews with a diverse group of forty-five women, The Seasons of a Woman's Life completes and substantiates Levinson's thesis which he first introduced nearly twenty years ago: that all human beings go right on developing throughout their lives in a pattern of amazing inevitability.

Firmly grounded in original scientific research, this book is a rich source of insights and consolation. Every woman will recognize the deep shape of her own life in the pattern it outlines, from Early Adult Transition (agest 17-22) to Mid-Life Transition (ages 40-45) and beyond.

"A highly nuanced portrait, in every shade of gray, of individual women negotiating the transition of what Levinson calls 'early adulthood'—agest 18-45."—The New York Times Book Review
