Tough Transitions is an informative book, a guide to dealing with changes in life. Whether going through a divorce, a loss, a career change, or expecting a child, the author explains how to bring day to day challenges to the forefront and to make the best decisions with ease and a peaceful mind. Elizabeth Harper Neeld, Ph.D., a professional consultant and recognized expert on personal change, is by your side throughout this practical book.

Each chapter includes exercises, and lovely quotes to guide and encourage every step of the way. Questions are asked of the reader to enlighten the decisions facing them. Stories are shared by those who have had to struggle through their own issues, telling how they were able to overcome them. How we respond to these changes is just as important as why they occur. From someone caring for an elderly parent, dealing with loss of any kind, becoming a steparent, going through menopause - people share stories of dealing with life's difficulties. I liked this quote by Kathleen Fischer - 'Pondering the meaning of life we get not always great revelations but little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectadly in the dark'.

This book provides an in-depth view of facing and going through life's tough transitions - a handy guide to help meet challenges that seem insurmountable in the moment. I recommend it to professionals as a resource to help clients through counselling sessions, as well as to anyone needing encouragement, support, and moments of peace in passing through difficult times. Tough Transitions is a well thought out book, dealing with the ups and downs of life, and offering healing solutions - uplifting for the downtrodden, encouraging for the determined, and supportive for those grieving.
