Praise for Tranquility by Tuesday

"I've long loved Laura Vanderkam's focus on achieving calm in the midst of our full and fast-moving lives, and this is an indispensable manual for doing just that. Tranquility by Tuesday offers plenty of inspiration for a more serene life - but also, no less importantly, down-to-earth and evidence-backed advice for actually making it happen."
--Oliver Burkeman, New York Times bestselling author of Four Thousand Weeks

"This book is truly great! Vanderkam offers well-researched ways to break away from the guilt and shame associated with doing something for yourself, as well as strategies for creating boundaries for this time. Vanderkam helps us prioritize our time for the ultimate goal-- to be interested in our own lives."
--Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Play and Find Your Unicorn Space

"Laura Vanderkam never promises her readers a better life without also telling them exactly how to achieve it. This book is well researched and so helpful, especially because it comes from a personal place for her. She understands the frustration and exhaustion so many of us are feeling, and she has found a way to feel better. Not just while you're on vacation or over the weekend, but every day."
--Celeste Headlee, author of Do Nothing, We Need to Talk, and Speaking of Race

"This book is for anyone who just loves overscheduling their life...but doesn't love what it does to them. Laura Vanderkam's nine brilliant time rules are the opposite of finger-wagging: generous, practical, revelatory, and deeply flexible to adapt to whatever *your* version of a burstingly-full life looks like right now. After reading Tranquility by Tuesday, I have finally found satisfaction in the chaos."
--Lauren Smith Brody, author and founder of The Fifth Trimester

"Tranquility is a gift: a research-backed, step-by-step guide to making time for what--and who--matters most. Vanderkam offers essential strategies for making the most of our days, no matter how busy we are, and finding meaning in our daily routines and relationships. This book will make you more thoughtful and intentional about how you spend your most precious resource--time."
--Ximena Vengoechea, author of Listen Like You Mean It

"Time is finite and options are infinite. This book dives into that tension, and comes up with exciting new personal patterns that are equally powerful at work and at home."
--Aaron Dignan, author of Brave New Work

"In a niche already overflowing with guidance, Laura Vanderkam stands out as one of the field's most astute writers. She continues to offer surprising and valuable insights about making the most of our precious and limited time. I've greatly benefited from Laura's work over the years, and I'm so excited to implement the simple and practical nine-point framework she presents in Tranquility by Tuesday."
--Anne Bogel, author of I'd Rather Be Reading and Don't Overthink It
