Two former "suits" take to the road in search of meaningful second acts and find inspiration in the stories of other baby boomers who changed lanes and renewed their lives. The book provides a compass to help readers navigate their own midlife journeys, posing questions and charting road maps to guide their way. In contrast to all the hype on midlife transformation on the market today, Changing Lanes reassures readers that they do not have to identify a singular passion before embarking on the journey. The joy is in the exploration.

Susan Marshall had a three-decade career spanning multiple industries. She left AT&T Broadband when she was senior vice president of advanced services after spearheading the introduction of broadband Internet services in the cable industry, now a multi-billion dollar business. When her division was acquired, she retired from the so-called 'cowboy' industry, having achieved recognition in the technology sector as Woman of the Year coined especially for her since historically the award had only been given to men and as one of the cable industry s 2002 Wonder Women.
