Join us live online as New York Times bestselling author Adam Alter talks about his new book "Anatomy of a Breakthrough: How to Get Unstuck When It Matters Most."

Almost everyone feels stuck at some point. Whether you’re muddling through a midlife crisis, wrestling with writer’s block, trapped in a thankless job or trying to remedy a fraying friendship, the resulting emotion is usually a mix of anxiety, uncertainty, fear, anger and numbness. But it doesn’t have to be this way. "Anatomy of a Breakthrough" is the road map we all need to escape our inertia and flourish in the face of friction.

Artfully weaving together scientific studies, anecdotes and interviews, Alter teaches us that getting stuck is a feature rather than a glitch on the road to thriving. And with the right tweaks and corrections, we can reach even our loftiest targets.
