COVID-19 has brought a crush of change to all of us. Tens of millions of us have lost jobs, lost loved ones; are rethinking our careers, where we live; how we care for our children and aging parents. The way we cope with such changes is called a "life transition," and learning to master these periods may be the most essential life skill each of us needs now.
Bestselling author Bruce Feiler spent the last five years performing the biggest study of life transitions in half a century. Spurred by a string of personal crises, he collected life stories of hundreds of people who had been through wrenching life changes. He then combed through these interviews identifying patterns and takeaways that can help all of us survive and thrive in times of instability.
Bruce’s new book, Life is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age, unveils the first new model navigating such changes—or “lifequakes,” as he calls them—in 50 years and provides a fresh, new toolkit for transforming times of upheaval into periods of creativity and growth.
