Life Is In The Transitions

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Secrets of Happy Families and Council of Dads, a pioneering study of the stories people use to give shape to their lives and a bold guide for how to navigate life's growing number of transitions to live with more meaning, balance, and joy.

Bruce Feiler has long been writing about the stories that give our lives meaning. Recently he began to notice a new pattern: our old stories, with their predictable plot points along linear paths, no longer hold true. The idea that we'll have one job, one relationship, one source of happiness is hopelessly outdated. Yet many people feel overwhelmed by this change. We're concerned that our lives are not what we expected; that we're living life out of order.

Galvanized by a personal crisis and family emergency, Feiler set out on what became an epic journey to harvest American stories and see what he could learn from them. He crisscrossed the country, collecting hundreds of life stories from a breathtaking range of Americans in all 50 states. He then sifted through and coded these stories, building a massive database of patterns and takeaways that can help all of us live better.

LIFE IS THE STORY YOU TELL YOURSELF introduces the fresh, pressing vision of the nonlinear life, in which personal disruptions and lifequakes are becoming more plentiful, nontraditional life shapes are becoming the norm, and each of us has the opportunity to write our own story. Drawing on an extraordinary trove of insights, Feiler offers a powerful, new transition toolkit with original strategies for coping with the difficult, painful, or unsettling times of life.

From a master storyteller with a timely message, LIFE IS THE STORY YOU TELL YOURSELF can move readers of any age to think deeply about their life story and how to tell it with more wisdom.
