Overview

This new edition of Seven Times Down Eight Times Up: Landing on Your Feet in an Upside Down World is the right book for the right time. We seemingly are in the midst of an upside down world in which the economy is in shambles, our security is threatened, and we're uncertain of who we can trust. It is no wonder that we struggle with our emotions to the extent that we do. The second edition revises many of the original stories while adding a host of new ones. The book retains its easy-to-read format, offering a hundred brief, parable-like stories that hold your interest while conveying valuable insights that help you to feel better and function differently.
