Back cover copy

Most of us live lives of "quiet desperation," as Henry David Thoreau put it, except we're no longer so quiet about it. When exactly did "all stress, all the time" replace the "green pastures and still waters"? And what can we do about it? We try to manage all the details thrown our way, but we lack a sense of calm and steadiness at the center. Richard A. Swenson, MD, author of the best-selling book Margin, helps us understand the dangers of living in a post-balance world and gives us hope for recovering a foundational sense of equilibrium.
Dr. Swenson offers not only important organizing principles for making sense of our lives but also scores of practical Rx's for recovering our balance. Having worked out his principles as a physician, author, and speaker, Dr. Swenson gives advice that is grounded in the daily realities we all experience. But his wisdom has been honed by the big-picture perspective of an exhaustive study of the stresses of modern life and progress, the forces that relentlessly give us "more and more of everything faster and faster."
Let Dr. Swenson be your gentle guide for reaching a new stage of personal balance. Want to use the book in a group? See the free online discussion guide at www.navpress.com.
