9780060514877: Second Acts: Creating the Life You Really Want, Building the Career You Truly Desire

In his new book, Second Acts, Stephen Pollan shares with readers the idea that people are unnecessarily fearful of dramatic change, that they mistakenly believe that they are locked into the life or career course they are on.

In this book he shows them how to take a daring leap and create what he calls a 'second act' – a dramatic life change that can lead to happiness and fulfilment.

Drawing on his own consulting practice, his own life experiences, and working under the premise that 'everything is possible', Pollan shows readers how to live a life without boundaries. Now, in an age of uncertainty, he says, is the time for a second act – a time when anything and everything is possible. Whether it's changing careers, starting your own business, or dropping everything in order to pursue a life dream, Pollan shows how each and every one of us can overcome the biggest obstacles to happiness – those in our own mind – and create our personal second acts, resulting in a more gratifying and fulfilling life.
