'Change: The Tools You Need for the Life You Want at Work and Home' by Gary Brandt is a pretty good book on how to deal with change. The author has his share of experience with the subject.
The book is told as the story of a company going through a merger/takeover. As part of the process, there will be layoffs and uncertainty. The story of change gets played out in the characters. One refuses to accept change, others find their way. Along the way, the lessons of how to deal with change are given. "You Don’t Always Get to Choose Change, but You Always Get to Choose Your Response" being my favorite quote from the book.
Having gone through a fair amount of change over the last several years, I have been each of the characters in this book. How you respond to change makes all the difference.
At less than 200 pages, this is a fairly quick read. I appreciated the approach and the author's personal story was pretty poignant. I have already recommended this book to someone on the verge of some pretty major change.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Greenleaf Book Group and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
