Life in the Transitions: Mastering Change in Any Age

Penguin. Jul. 2020. 368p. ISBN 9781594206825. $28. SELF-HELP
Feiler’s new book (The Secrets of Happy Families; Walking the Bible) explains that instead of going through life following a series of calibrated progressions, people experience it as a complex swirl of celebrations, setbacks, triumphs, and rebirths. The key to thriving through disruptors and lifequakes is to make meaning in times of change. Feiler details a model for life transitions based on thousands of interviews with people from all walks of life and tells readers how to memorialize changes and give up old mind-sets. A helpful bonus is the complete outline for writing one’s own story or that of others.
VERDICT This highly recommended title couldn’t be more timely.
