Nancy Schlossberg's warm, practical, and constructive approach will help anyone feeling overwhelmed (as all of us occasionally are) by events we hoped for, by disasters we hoped to avoid, or by "sleeper" changes we didn't anticipate.
Nancy Schlossberg's Overwhelmed: Coping with Life's Ups and Downs is a combination self-help book and personal improvement tool-kit. Professor Schlossberg tells great storiesstories that teach and guide us to move from "overwhelmed" to "in control" as we face life's vicissitudes. What more could one ask for?
Schlossberg comes to the subject with great professional competence and experience and presents readers with much-needed solutions.
For better or worse, Americans are among the most mobile people in recorded history. Almost willy-nilly, they change their places of residence, occupations, schools, life styles, etc., at a dizzying pace. For those of us-and our name is legion-who at times feel overwhelmed by these unexpected and, more often than not, extremely painful disruptions in our hectic lives, Schlossberg's study of people in transition is just what the doctor ordered. She is a scholar in the best sense of the word, but wears her scholarship lightly, and her study is suffused with an appealing note of personal warmth and empathy too often lacking in works of this kind. I found her book instructive and personally very helpful, and I am pleased to recommend it enthusiatically.
For the overwhelmed woman, time given to reading Overwhelmed will be well spent. The author has a rare gift: insight combined with clear, crisp writing. Her prescription for coping is mature, sympathetic, and-best of all-realistic.
