Book Review: Next! The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work

Next the Power of Reinvention in Life and Work

We all go through business and personal pivots, reinventions, and transformations.  Some are big, some are relatively small.   Yet the process is fairly predictable as outlined in Next! The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work by Wall Street Journalist Joanne Lipman. 

Lipman illuminates the process of reinvention with tons of stories of famous and not-so-famous people reinventing themselves.  As I was reading the book, I harkened back to several “pivots” and “reinventions” in my own life and kept thinking “oh, THAT’s what was going on!”  Hindsight is helpful….

Yet the real gold in this book is to help you NOW.  Especially in this post-COVID world, many of us are in transition.  From here to where?  This book will help you.  Perhaps you know your destination but are struggling.  This book will help you.  Or maybe you are ready to give up your dream.  This book will help inspire you (or give you some ideas about when you need to stop).  

I loved reading the book and didn’t want to put it down.  If you are in transition, this book will be one of your “expert companions.”
