In this impressively researched and incisive book, Bruce Grierson draws on over 300 stories of so-called "u-turners"--those who have risked their livelihoods to answer a sudden wake-up call. We meet people who change political parties and careers, doctors who quit to become poets, men who become women, individuals who suddenly become revolutionaries for a cause they didn't care about the day before.

Grierson brilliantly describes and elucidates this powerful, mysterious phenomenon, with chapters that address everything from the neuroscience behind epiphanies to the possibility of "forcing" a u-turn. In doing so he illuminates the continual struggle of each of us with life choices and identity.

About the Author:

Bruce Grierson (Vancouver) has been nominated for eight Canadian National Magazine Awards. He is the co-author of Culture Jam, a long-time journalist and a frequent Adbusters contributor.
