About the Author

Joanne Lipman has authored a pioneering journalism career. She was the first female Deputy Managing Editor at the Wall Street Journal, where she created the Weekend Journal and Personal Journal sections and oversaw the creation of the paper's Saturday edition. She was founding editor-in-chief of Conde Nast Portfolio magazine. And she served as Editor-in-Chief at USA Today and Chief Content Officer at Gannet. Under her editorship, she led these organizations to numerous awards, including six Pulitzer Prizes. Dubbed "star editor" by CNN, she is author of the No. 1 national bestseller That's What She Said, about closing the gender gap, and coauthor of the music memoir Strings Attached. She is a lecturer at Yale University's Department of Political Science and was the Peretsman Scully Distinguished Journalism Fellow at Princeton University's Institute for Advanced Study. Lipman is a contributor to CNBC.


"NEXT! is brilliant. It's an invaluable handbook to help you climb out of that lifestyle or job rut, or make the jump to a second or third career, or take a big breath and reach for the stars. I'm glad I read it cover to cover last night. I'm already thinking about what I should do NEXT!" -- JAMES PATTERSON

"Success and well-being depend on learning to anticipate and ride waves of change instead of being knocked over by them. As a journalist and leader, Joanne Lipman has spent much of her career honing that skill, and her engaging book is filled with useful ideas for rethinking your next steps." -- ADAM GRANT

"Whether you're looking to transform your career, your business or your life, Joanne Lipman is here to prove you can get there from here. Packed with real-life stories and the latest research, NEXT! is the book everyone needs right now--inspiration to embrace change and a push to take control of your future."

"What's next, and how do you get there? Next! takes readers inside successful reinventions and transformations to offer an actionable toolkit for change in work and life when a pivot is needed to survive and thrive." -- USA Today, "20 Spring Books We Can't Wait to Read"

"Changing one's life is never easy, but NEXT! provides a map to help chart the course. Lipman was the editor in chief of USA Today, the deputy managing editor at the Wall Street Journal, and founding editor-in-chief of Condé Nast Portfolio, so she is well situated to offer career advice. The book comprises a wealth of stories about people who have made successful, and often radical, transformations in their professional lives. ... Lipman's advice is practical and approachable, and the cases she cites are instructive."

"This enthusiastic program will be a comfort to those who feel stuck in their jobs." -- Publishers Weekly
