About the Author

Bruce Feiler is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers, including Life Is in the Transitions, The Secrets of Happy Families, and Council of Dads. His three TED talks have been viewed more than four million times, and he teaches the TED course How to Master Life Transitions. A native of Savannah, Georgia, he lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Linda Rottenberg, and their twin daughters.


"In The Search Mr. Feiler makes the case that, by reflecting on their personal experience and asking a few probing questions of themselves, people can craft 'work stories'--that is, narratives that help people make sense of their various professional twists and turns and help people create their own definitions of success alongside the meaning they are looking for." --The Wall Street Journal

"For years, Bruce Feiler has been writing and speaking about how we find meaning in our lives and nurture our spiritual selves, and he's done it once again with a fantastic new book . . . The Search is invaluable for anybody who wants to find meaning in their lives and in their work. Which is to say, for everybody." --Arianna Huffington, Thrive

"Bruce's first hand approach to his work, living the experiences he writes about, allows him to provide practical guidance on navigating life's transitions and finding reasons for why we're all here." --Elise Loehnen, Pulling the Thread podcast

"A useful, insightful guide to anyone who is seeking a more satisfying way to live." --Kirkus

"[An] energetic challenge to status quo notions of success . . . [Feiler's] down-to-earth delivery and emphasis on individual agency will resonate with readers seeking direction. Those at professional crossroads will benefit." --Publishers Weekly
