‘You: Part Two’

Thriving in the second half of your life

Little Brown / Hachette 2021/2022
Co-authored with yoga teacher and yoga therapist, Jane Macpherson
This is our time.

We Second Halfers are the largest section of the population and more are joining our ranks every day. We own 75% of the private wealth and are the business world’s major consumers. And in an ageing society that is ironically obsessed with youth, we have no intention of fading away. It is our time to shine.

It is also a time when everything is changing – the way we work, the way we live, our relationships, our identities, our minds, our bodies … are all in a state of flux. You: Part Two covers all of this and more – Menopause vs MenoPorsche, overcoming the inevitable obstacles that life will throw in our way, working in the second half, changing careers, starting your own business, extending your prime – and how to fund it all.

This insightful, entertaining and thought-provoking book by husband-and-wife team, Campbell and Jane Macpherson (one a financial services insider and business adviser, the other a yoga teacher and yoga therapist) is the perfect tonic for today’s turbulent times. It will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. It will energise your soul and give your mojo a boost. Most of all, it will help you to thrive in the second half of your life.

This isn’t the beginning of the end. It’s merely the end of the beginning. Bring it on!

Jane was on a ten-day trek to Machu Picchu.

Towards the end of this life-affirming adventure, the expedition paused to rest in a tiny village on the side of a remote mountain. In front of one of the simple, ancient houses sat an old woman, quietly and proudly preparing her family’s evening meal. She exuded calmness, contentment, health and purpose. Jane was drawn to her and introduced herself.

During the short conversation that followed, Jane said to her, via an interpreter, ‘I hope you don’t mind me asking, but how old are you?’

The woman looked directly into Jane’s eyes, smiled and gave a simple yet profound response:

‘I don’t know, but I am well.’
