(In an Insane World)

These essays are designed to help you explore yourself as you deal with the trials and tribulations of our modern and complicated everyday life. They will help empower you to deal more effectively with the complexities and challenges of contemporary living. While you do not have control over the hand that you are dealt, you do have control over how you play the hand.

About the Author

For Ed Dreyfus, the concepts of change and flexibility have been important parts of both his psychotherapy practice and his own daily life. “So many people fear change. They only barely tolerate change when it’s forced upon them. I believe everyone could benefit from have a more optimistic view of change. Instead of letting life just ‘happen,’ I encourage people to participate more fully in their own lives and seize opportunities to try new things, cultivate hobbies and even take the occasional risk – that’s how personal growth happens, not by standing pat and waiting for instructions.”
