Event description

Description


“Lays out life’s essential goals… serves as a kind of detailed instruction manual on how to achieve them.”
—New York Times Book Review

“Once you’ve read Gretchen Rubin’s tale of a year spent searching for satisfaction, you’ll want to start your own happiness project and get your friends and family to join you. This is the rare book that will make you both smile and think—often on the same page.”
—Daniel H. Pink, Drive

OUTER ORDER, INNER CALM, is where Gretchen Rubin illuminated one of her key realizations about happiness: For most of us, outer order contributes to inner calm. And for most of us, a rigid, one-size-fits-all solution doesn't work. The fact is, when we tailor our approach to suit our own particular challenges and habits, we're far more likely to be able to create the order that will make our lives happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. With a sense of fun, and also a clear idea of what's realistic for most people, Gretchen Rubin suggests dozens of manageable steps for creating a more serene, orderly environment- one that helps us to create the lives we yearn for.


JOIN US on Monday, March 11th, at 7:30 PM for a CPS Lecture with Gretchen Rubin, she will discuss Outer Order, Inner Calm. This book will be released on March 5th and we are very excited to have her join us just six days later on her United States book tour!
