WHY WE CAN'T SLEEP Women's New Midlife Crisis

by | Read by Ada Calhoun

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

The depth of Ada Calhoun's research shows in the somber tone she uses while sharing an analysis of contemporary American women's angst. She is precise, measured, and empathetic as she describes the conflicting desires that compete for women's attention. Calhoun shares her findings through anecdotes. Throughout, she maintains a quiet confidence that underlines her sympathy for the situations she describes. In doing so, she nudges the listener to consider her theme that women are raised to meet impossible demands. She takes their ever present worries seriously rather than dismissing them as trivial. Listeners are in capable hands as Calhoun persuasively lists the social and personal considerations that plague women from their twenties onward.
