Life Management

Those who are blessed in life often enjoy extended periods – weeks and sometimes months – when everything is running smoothly and happiness prevails. Yet it only takes one crisis, mishap or unforeseen circumstance to send things spinning out of control. Life management, relatively easy during the good times, becomes a bigger challenge when you hit a bump in the road.

In our Life Management section, you’ll find an assortment of summaries that address some of the most significant – and often traumatic – events in life. If you’re struggling with relationship issues, getAbstract can offer guidance. Our seasoned writers expertly distill the key points from the most popular books, meaning you only need to invest around 10 minutes to read a summary. And since we are constantly adding new summaries to the thousands of titles we already have, your knowledge base will continually expand.

Rough Going

Psychologists say that divorce is among the top five most traumatic events in a person’s life. Our Life Management category includes a number of summaries that explain how to deal with the emotional fallout of a divorce and why you have reason to be optimistic about the future. Our summaries also cover depression, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and recovery from physical, mental and sexual abuse. The bottom line is that getAbstract can help you make sense of your situation and offer ways to restore equilibrium and hope to your life.
