About the Authors

We all fall into traps -- often without realizing it until it's too late. We didn't intend to end up there, and we're not the first to fall into them. But nevertheless, that's where we find ourselves. Like quicksand, traps are easy to step into, but hard to get out of. The more we struggle and flail about the deeper we seem to sink. Yet if one knows and follows the right steps, it is quite possible to escape quicksand. And if one learns the telltale signs, it's possible to avoid stepping in quicksand altogether. What if we could learn to spot the key traps in our life? What if we could learn the steps to pull ourselves out of the traps we are stuck in? This book introduces a new concept- Trapology: The study of common traps that people throughout the world are falling into at different stages of their lives.
