The best-selling guide for coping with changes in life and work, named one of the 50 all-time best books in self-help and personal development
Whether you choose it or it is thrust upon you, change brings both opportunities and turmoil. Since Transitions was first published, this supportive guide has helped hundreds of thousands of readers cope with these issues by providing an elegantly simple yet profoundly insightful roadmap of the transition process. With the understanding born of both personal and professional experience, William Bridges takes readers step by step through the three stages of any transition: The Ending, The Neutral Zone, and, eventually, The New Beginning. Bridges explains how each stage can be understood and embraced, leading to meaningful and productive movement into a hopeful future. With a new introduction highlighting how the advice in the book continues to apply and is perhaps even more relevant today, and a new chapter devoted to change in the workplace, Transitions will remain the essential guide for coping with the one constant in life: change.

William Bridges, PhD (1933-2013) was a preeminent authority on change and transition whose pioneering research provided a methodology and common language to guide organizations and individuals during the significant transitions that accompany a major change. As the founder of William Bridges Associates and a globally recognized speaker, author, and consultant, he advised individuals and organizations on how to deal productively with change. He was the author of ten books, including the bestselling Managing Transitions, Transitions, and The Way of Transition. With the publication of his groundbreaking book JobShift in 1994, William accurately predicted the explosive growth of self-employment, helping people understand how to prepare for a world in which secure jobs would be increasingly scarce. He later published Creating You & Co., which guides individuals on how to take charge of their career while navigating this new world of work. William received degrees from Harvard, Columbia, and Brown Universities, and Ralph Waldo Emerson's pragmatic philosophy heavily influenced his teachings.Susan Bridges is the president of William Bridges Associates and has spent thirty-five years advising executives and leaders in organizations facing significant transitions. She updated and revised the 40th anniversary edition of Transitions and the 25th anniversary edition of Managing Transitions. Susan holds a BA in Speech and MA in Communications, with an emphasis in Neurolinguistics and Neuropsychology, from the University of Colorado. She has served as a Drucker Foundation Mentor, guiding the business leaders of tomorrow. As a former board member for the Institute of Management Consultants, she developed the first nation-wide mentoring and professional development program for management consultants. She lives in Marin County, CA.
