First published in 1980, Transitions was the first book to explore the underlying and universal pattern of transition. Recently named one of the 50 most important self-help books of all time, Transitions remains the essential guide for coping with the inevitable changes in life.

Transitions takes listeners step-by-step through the three perilous stages of any life passage, explaining how each stage can be understood and embraced. Offering an elegantly simple yet profoundly insightful roadmap for successfully navigating change and moving into a hopeful future, the process is ever relevant and applicable today. Among the subjects covered:

Endings. Every transition begins with one. Too often we misunderstand them, confuse them with finality: That's it, all over, finished! Yet how we recognize endings is key to how we can begin anew.

The Neutral Zone. The second hurdle of transitions: a seemingly unproductive time-out when we feel disconnected from people and things in the past and emotionally unconnected to the present. Yet the neutral zone is really a time of reorientation. How can we make the most of it?

The New Beginning. In transitions, we come to beginnings only at the end, when we launch new activities. To make a successful new beginning requires more than simply persevering. It requires an understanding of external signs and inner signals that point the way to the future. Download and start listening now!

    " One of those books that make you step back and realize why you think and do certain things. The book really lets you appreciate how long it takes to switch from doing things 'the old way' to the new, even if the new is so much more favorable, and that we always need to appreciate what we're giving up when we change. "

    " I read this book at uni after i attended a business lecture on change management. It spoke to me at the time and i was impressed that the speaker linked a self help book to HR change management. "

    " Great beginner book. It is a must read for those who are transitioning in life whether it is culturally, spiritually, or personally. "

    " The author made a differentiation between changes and transitions and how our culture has historically dealt with transitions. "
