Reviews

"Clear, concise, and captivating. From the onset, one is quickly drawn in through their honest and open comments supplemented by engaging stories, provocative examples, and supportive research. The book is a page turner, nudging one on to the next chapter and then the next." --New York Journal of Books

"A valuable volume about finding and embracing passion, avoiding burnout, and carefully navigating an unbalanced life." --Publisher's Weekly "Passion. The topic is sparking conversations at work, at school, and at home. Should we throw everything to the winds and follow our passion? Or should we strive for balance and let our passions cool? In THE PASSION PARADOX, Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness offer the surprising, nuanced, and research-backed answer. This super-smart, must-read book will teach you how to find and fuel your passion without burning up or burning out." --Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of When and Drive "Passion is a roller coaster ride that can send us on a sudden, precipitating plunge from the heights of happiness to the depths of despair.
