About the Author

Neeld, a consultant to Fortune 500 companies and a former professor at Texas A&M, offers useful guidance on handling difficult life passages, like divorce, illness and the death of a parent or spouse. She also includes transitions that blend joy and challenge, such as retirement, the birth of a child or a desired career change. Her program is well thought out, incorporating four steps-responding, reviewing, renewing and reorganizing-illustrated by inspiring personal testimonies (including her own). For instance, in responding, which means handling emotional swings, the author recommends, among other things, slowing down and seeking the help of a professional. After emotions have subsided, it's time to review by exploring hopeful possibilities, and reorganizing means beginning to find a new sense of purpose. This stage flows directly into renewing, a period of new creativity and celebrating a stronger self. Throughout each stage, Neeld (Seven Choices: Finding Daylight After Loss Shatters Your World) strongly advocates listening to music as an escape, an aid to meditation or simply a soothing activity (she even recommends specific works for particular needs). Neeld's wise advice will help many through life's inevitable transitions. Agent, Chris Tomasino. (June 15) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Life, as organizational change consultant Neeld (Seven Choices) sees it, is made up of a series of transitions, which she describes as shifts from "how things were to how things are going to be." Such changes are stressful, whether they are the result of positive events, such as getting married or buying a new house, or negative ones, like getting divorced or coping with the death of a loved one. To navigate this emotional terrain, she offers a life map, dividing transition into four phases: Responding, Reviewing, Reorganizing, and Renewing. Though each phase must be experienced, the transition process is individualized, and phases may be revisited or may even occur simultaneously. Neeld includes various anecdotal accounts of this four-phased transition that are sure to strike a chord with readers. Her wise and inspirational book emphasizes the self-care that is so essential to emotional well-being, particularly during stressful times. Most important, it offers hope.
