cars for low-income people; a Harvard lawyer became a New
Age healer, and more. Click on “About the Book”

Irwin writes from experience— as a person who has made
a successful life U-turn, she brings knowledge of the process
and a belief that we can make U-turns too. This book provides
the experiences of so many people that you will find it impossible
to deny that you can make the changes you wish to make in your
