As a counselor, I am constantly helping my clients adapt to change as it is one of the biggest challenges everyone faces on a daily basis. This book is perfect for helping people understand that change is not the enemy but is a reality of life. Learning better coping skills for dealing with change is one of the best ways for not only my clients but also for anyone to learn to welcome rather than resist it as it constantly comes into their lives.
Why does everything always have to change? I have often contemplated this question and haven’t really understood how to answer this question until I read More Turbulent Change. This book is full of practical and insightful advice on navigating change in both your organization and in your career. This is a must-read for anyone who has to deal well with change in their daily work life—and who doesn’t!

As a former Human Resource Director for an international division of a Fortune 200 company, I believe Peter Garber’s latest book would be applicable to anyone regardless of where in the world they work. I particularly enjoyed the section of dealing with the changes that organizational politics brings and how to avoid becoming a casualty by resisting the inevitable. As the book illustrates so well, change can be turbulent and turning its energy into a positive force can help you reach both your personal and professional goals in life. This book can help you forecast when the next change is coming and actually look for ways that it can become a positive in your life. I’ve read many other books on change, but Peter has provided us with a much more holistic lesson on change in this excellent and unique approach.
