Tracing the many ways in which American culture conspires to keep us stalled, Rufus delivers a long-awaited diagnosis for our day and age. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel (at least for some): Rufus also tells the stories of people who managed to become unstuck or of others who, after much reflection, decided that where they are is best. After all, she says: "What looks to you like paralysis, looks perhaps to another like passion. What looks to you like a rut, others might say is true absorption in a topic, a relationship, a career, a pursuit, a place. What looks to you like boredom, others call commitment. even contentment." A rare glimpse into what truly motivates - or doesn't motivate us - Stuck inspires readers to take a look at themselves in an entirely new light.

I enjoy audio books and blogging.
Less preaching and more enlightening.
I liked the cover and the title.
I did rush into getting this book. Unfortunately, I was looking for something much more advanced. This may be helpful to a middle school maturity level.
