Changing Course Book CoverThe human quest for change is constant. As existing dreams are realized, new dreams take their place. On one level, CHANGING COURSE is a straight-forward, step-by-step examinination of supporting your partner's dreams and embracing the cruising life. On a deeper level, it addresses the dynamics of change we encounter in every-day life and how - through the experiences of numerous women who have gone before us - we can rise through those levels of change to achieve ultimate fulfillment and satisfaction.

CHANGING COURSE chronicles the odyssey of making a major lifestyle change from land to sea from a woman's perspective. The moving and often poignant thoughts, feelings, and experiences of more than 100 women illustrate the decision-making process that enabled most of them to move from resisting the change proposed by their partners to embracing the cruising life.

CHANGING COURSE is an inspiring examination of the highs, lows, and day-to-day drama of changing one's life in a fundamental way. From the common fears that prevent individuals from taking risks to the interpersonal dynamics that affect couples and relationships, this one-of-a-kind book explores the phenomenon of change and the growing lifestyle change movement.

Thought-provoking and highly personal, CHANGING COURSE explores what women stand to gain when they risk to change course - and what they stand to lose if they do not.
