Life Is in the Transitions speaks to the moment in a way even more specific than author and Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington meant when she called it “one of those books that’s so profoundly aligned with the zeitgeist that you end up underlining the whole book.”

Feiler began his intensive research long before COVID-19 slowed the globe’s roll. Galvanized by a personal crisis, the author of The New York Times bestsellers The Secrets of Happy Families and Council of Dads, spent the last few years crisscrossing the country, collecting hundreds of life stories in all 50 states from Americans who had been through major life changes. He then spent a year coding these stories, identifying patterns and takeaways that can help all of us survive and thrive in times of change.

For most of that time, Herb was the photography editor for Metronome, the primary magazine devoted to jazz.
