The Book

Named 1 of the Washington Post’s 50 Notable Nonfiction Books of the Year!

Named a Good Reads finalist for Best Business Book of 2014!

From Time Confetti to Time Serenity: Overwhelmed is both a map of the stresses that have ripped our leisure to shreds and a blueprint for how to put the pieces back together. What Brigid Schulte offers us is a revelatory, at times hilarious, and at heart optimistic view of how we can begin to find time for the things that matter most and live more fulfilled lives.
