Midwest Book Review on Pipedream: Life at Middle Age

Check out the review at Midwest Book Review;

"Age is unvoidable; it's how we embrace it that matters. "Pipedream: Life at Middle Age" is a collection of musings on middle age and the challenges of realizing times change and evolve around you, and how to manage it all as it moves on, understanding the self's role in life and where you're spending the other half. "Pipedream" is a strong pick for memoir, self-help and essay colections." You may find this review under Vogel's Bookshelf.
