Publisher's Summary

In Mastering the Art of Quitting the authors show us how to let go when we need to and how to start over. A guide to increasing our emotional and mental flexibility, assessing our goals, and knowing when to hang in or bail out, it tackles our tendencies to over analyze, ruminate, and put a positive spin on situations we actually need to avoid. In a culture which perceives quitting as a last resort, Alan Bernstein and Peg Streep show that it’s an essential tool for a happy and successful life. They reveal simple truths which apply to goals in all areas of life including love, relationships, and work.
Quitting permits growth and learning, as well as the ability to frame new goals. Without the ability to give up, most people will end up in a discouraging loop. The most satisfied people know when it’s time to stop persisting and start quitting. Quitting is a healthy, adaptive response when a goal can’t be reached.

talking about academic studies needs dynamic voice

narration could be better. would have preferred a female voice on this one. the voice of this narration is the classic book narrating voice - easy to ignore as you're doing other tasks while listening to the audio book. the narrator would also could have inserted more pauses into the narration. strangely, he pronounced 'err' as "ur" - not a complaint, but odd.
