5.0 out of 5 stars death of a loved one, moving 12 October 2015
By D. B. Fritch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read TRANSITIONS: MAKING SENSE OF LIFE'S CHANGES By William Bridges many years ago -- I'm guessing probably when it first came out. I was in my early 30s. My overview: it explains how periods of time between "the end of something" and "the beginning of something else" usually brings turmoil, yet new paths and opportunies to grow as an individual... and most importantly a way to cope when you're living through that period of "in between". Birth of a baby, new job or losing a job, death of a loved one, moving, health issues, anything you can think of that impacts your life in any way -- big event or small -- we all go through these periods of "change"... it simply cannot be avoided. I can state, unequivocally, that reading this book so many years ago was a critical aspect in allowing me to be the strong person I am today. I highly recommend reading it, as it applies more today than ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Transcends Self-help Genra 15 April 2016
By W. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Yeah, this is one of the best books that I read that could be said to fall vaguely into the self-help category, but it way less stupid. The message is actually fairly simple: Chill out, Rome wasn't built in a day, You can't hurry love. In my case: Retirement is a major transition. It takes time. Don't beat yourself up over not knowing what to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book suggested to me to handle a recent death helped me see the burdens I had carried far longer than needed 10 May 2013
By Russell Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After the death of a very close friend, my Leadership Coach (whom I think of as the therapist for Professional Me) suggested this book by an author whom he knew personally (and who unfortunately passed away this spring). Reading it, I saw the truth of our shared American focus on the New of every change, without honoring the Old, or valuing the Neutral between. Since so few of the transitions of our lives are formalized or ritualized in a way to support the three phase reality of a change, this focus on Step 3 leads to false starts, and more difficulty than necessary. It's easy to find parallels in your own life as he describes the students in his Transitions classes, and gain his insight into how better to handle them. Some of his references are outdated, because this edition was written more for Baby Boomers, but the takeaways are valid and easy to apply. I have recommended this book to others and already loaned by copy to someone.

5.0 out of 5 stars LIFE'S TRANSITION -V- CHANGE 11 June 2014
By Debbie Boyette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is exactly what I've been looking for. A very down-to-earth readable book for everyone . . .not some book with big words and psychobabble. It's for the everyday person who is going through a "transition," also commonly referred to as "change," in their lives and are psychologically muddling through. Maybe I was looking for some kind of validation, maybe it was some kind of guidance, or maybe it was just plain knowing that I was not alone in my feelings of being lost . . . and I found all my answers here. No, it didn't cure all my ills; that is up to me. For me, the book nailed it right on the head: "Change" is what happened; i.e., loss of a job, loved one, empty nest, the "fact of the matter." "Transitions" are your feelings you're dealing with as you wade through your life journey. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone "grasping" at straws" at any point in their life . . . it's for us simple folk. You docs go get your own book!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on life's transitions 13 January 2016
By Almin1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book during a time when I was going through a transition, and it helped immensely. I still read it because though I'm out of the bewilderment stage, I've still not crossed over fully into my next phase! It helped me understand the purpose of transitions, why they appear to be difficult, and trying to hurry the process is futile. I learned to understand the process and know that I'm not crazy. I think the author passed away, but he did the world a favor by writing down his wisdom about transitions. This is really a book that should be taught in school. Certainly this is excellent for a book group.
