How to Be a Grown Up by Stacy Kaiser

Stacy Kaiser lets us in on the secrets of human behavior: change is always possible! But more importantly, Stacy gives you the power to create the life you want. - Peter Walsh, author of Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?

As the psychotherapist for both Celebrity Fit Club and Lifetime’s Diet Tribe, as well as in private practice, Stacy Kaiser has provided therapy for thousands of clients facing all kinds of challenges. Now, in her first book, Kaiser identifies the ten critical areas that will help readers develop the life skills to become a successful, happy, well rounded adult. “If something in your life is missing, or not working the way you want it to—be it your career, your weight, or your love life—HOW TO BE A GROWN UP will empower you with the necessary tools to take control for a better way of life,” Kaiser explains.

HOW TO BE A GROWN UP (HarperOne; On-sale June 2010; Hardcover; ISBN 978-006194118-4) begins with “The Quiz,” an empowering first step which allows the reader to become an expert on her own life, and explore what she really wants and needs in every area of life. Then, in chapters packed full of tips, tools, and exercises, Kaiser takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery in which he or she will: (1) evaluate individual strengths and weaknesses, (2) identify self-sabotaging traits and learn how to change them once and for all, and (3) dig deep to discover the cause of unwanted behaviors.

According to Kaiser, fully-loaded grown ups are fully empowered and in charge of their own lives. They are able to initiate change instead of just reacting to events, bounce back from setbacks and disappointments, and enjoy more satisfying relationships with everyone—including themselves. Most importantly, fully-loaded grown ups enjoy the true freedom that comes with confidence in their ability to live their own best life.

With her trademark mix of warmth and toughness, Stacy Kaiser motivates readers to rally their strengths, let go of childish, outgrown attachments, and arrive at a peaceful balance between freedom and responsibility. For those who feel like they have lost control of their lives, or those who just need a tune-up in one or two areas, HOW TO BE A GROWN UP is a wise and witty guide to life as an adult.
