Publisher's Summary

In Mastering the Art of Quitting the authors show us how to let go when we need to and how to start over. A guide to increasing our emotional and mental flexibility, assessing our goals, and knowing when to hang in or bail out, it tackles our tendencies to over analyze, ruminate, and put a positive spin on situations we actually need to avoid. In a culture which perceives quitting as a last resort, Alan Bernstein and Peg Streep show that it’s an essential tool for a happy and successful life. They reveal simple truths which apply to goals in all areas of life including love, relationships, and work.

Quitting permits growth and learning, as well as the ability to frame new goals. Without the ability to give up, most people will end up in a discouraging loop. The most satisfied people know when it’s time to stop persisting and start quitting. Quitting is a healthy, adaptive response when a goal can’t be reached.

    "Good book but not in audio format."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No. Because for an audiobook it has too many questionnaires. Also book has an abundance of psychological data but very few practical recommendations.

    "Insights Everyone Should have!"

    This is more than a book, or interesting read, it is a well planned, thought out, researched, and executed informational guide for inspiring and cultivating the human endeavor to reach maximum fulfillment. I am recommending this book to absolutely everyone!

    "brilliant perspective"
    Would you try another book written by Peg Streep and Alan B. Bernstein or narrated by Grover Gardner?

    Yes to writers, no to narrator. The tone of reading wasn't fitting to the topic and was really hard to listen to - I noticed I was getting agitated with the rest of my life. Eugh. Shame because I'd like to revisit the very brilliant information.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I would have liked an upbeat reader with softer tones that didn't strike into my nerves.


    Did Mastering the Art of Quitting inspire you to do anything?

    It was pretty validating and helped to differentiate with where to persist and build character, and where quitting IS also building character.
