A complete waste of time. The book describes a set of "life pathways" based on questionnaires sent out every ten years to a group of people who went to college together. The tone is patronizing and the material insults the reader's intelligence; the author frequently admits that she is "extrapolating", "speculating", or just plain "guessing" what is going on in each person's life in the decades between questionnaire responses. Despite this handicap she is able to diagnose some fairly specific psychological problems and express the pious hope that sufferers will be able to turn their lives around. After wading through page after page of pseudoscientific tripe, you arrive at the "revolutionary" idea that "it is never too late to change your life".
Do not inflict this book on yourself or anyone you care about.
