The complete guide for anyone who faces sudden change at work, in technology, and in the world around them.

In Changing Directions Without Losing Your Way, the authors who helped pioneer the "working from home" revolution identify the six stages of change in business and in life. In each of these six stages, Paul and Sarah demonstrate how to understand and assess change for what it is, and then recast your career or other vital aspects of life to adapt to new realities.

Their new book is filled with concrete suggestions, allowing every reader to feel that he or she can gain control of whatever situation life presents.

From facing a new reality, releasing the past, finding an inner compass, embracing the future, developing a strategy, to putting the show on the road, the six stages of change are clearly explained. The book even shows how to develop better nutrition and health habits that energize the body during periods of stress. The authors supply useful and simple exercises to help readers understand their options. They also supply vivid examples of others who have successfully wrestled with the disruptions of job changes, downsizing, or changes.

This was a very lack luster book. It gave a lot of general examples but nothing you could hang your hat on. Narration was very boring also.

This one contains no revelations, but there are some motivational pieces from the authors. Worthy of a read.
