Reviews

"An engaging consideration of how people navigate the highs and lows in their lives.... [Feiler's] relaxed, informal style is reassuring, and the numerous anecdotes gleaned from his wide variety of interview subjects keep the narrative fresh. His encouraging counsel will appeal to many." -- Booklist

"This is a remarkably poignant read about the pivotal moments in our lives. Bruce Feiler gets to the heart of how turning points shape us--and how we can shape them. The wisdom and stories in this book will change the way you tell your own story." --Adam Grant, bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take

"Crammed with cutting-edge research and compelling real-world examples, Life Is in the Transitions provides a framework of striking originality that explodes with thought-provoking insights. It has profound implications for how we view and handle the transitions--voluntary and involuntary--that increasingly disrupt our lives. And it's one of the rare books that is a pleasure to read in the moment and impossible to forget once you've finished the last page." --Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project and The Four Tendencies

"I don't know what's more astonishing, the range of stories Bruce Feiler has found in asking people about their lives, or the wisdom he extracts from them. There is no more powerful reminder that the stories we inherit define success--and that definition constantly needs updating. This beautiful book is an indispensable guide to accepting change--as it really is, rather than what it's supposed to be--and becoming who we really are." --Charles Duhigg, author of bestsellers The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better

"In Life Is in the Transitions, Bruce Feiler listens to, synthesizes, and helps make meaning of the American story at this complicated moment. With a big, open heart, he helps us all better understand our own stories, what it means to be human and how to navigate challenges and change. Along the way, he powerfully reminds us of the singular importance of honoring each other's stories and lives through listening." --Dave Isay, founder, Storycorps

"Bruce Feiler has a real knack for helping us see what is not obvious but is right in front of our eyes. In this clear, terrifically compelling book, full of instructive examples, he names and describes the 'lifequake' personal transitions that affect so many of us today and offers genuine wisdom, valuable counsel, and moving inspiration that make the journey easier. Read this book to open your eyes and lighten your heart!" --William Ury, co-author of Getting to Yes and author of Getting to Yes with Yourself
