Summary
Every day, in almost every field, someone perceives themselves to be on the wrong side of a psychic divide. Their gut tells them their life must change. When do u-turns happen? Who do they happen to? And are you better off if you make one? Bruce Grierson examines the u-turn from many angles--philosophical, scientific, literary and psychological, and draws on hundreds of stories of u-turners, including famous cases like Gandhi and Gauguin, as well as a host of other courageous people who have risked everything to answer life's wake-up call: people who change political parties and careers, people who give up their jobs to become poets, men who become women, professional athletes who quit to be with their families, mothers who quit their families to pursue careers, people who become revolutionaries for a cause they didn't care about the day before.--From publisher description
