Whether you’re buying a home or planning a career change, making a condolence call, dealing with a stalker, handling a tax audit, or trying to navigate your HMO, LIFEMAPS: A Step-by-Step Method for Simplifying 101 of Life’s Most Overwhelming Projects (A Fireside Original; Simon & Schuster; August 15, 2002; 0-7434-0061-5; $15.00 LINK is the perfect guide to simplify any situation. Unlike many how-to books that bury a few nuggets of information under thousands of pep-talk words, LIFEMAPS offers a straightforward, step by step roadmap to even the trickiest of today’s predicaments.

By taking the successful, easy-to-read graphic format created by Stephen M. Pollan and Mark Levine for their bestselling book LIFESCRIPTS, writer Michael Antoniak has created a new and palatable way to tackle life’s formidably complex challenges.  LIFEMAPS offers simple, graphic maps that break down dozens of difficult situations into a series of easily managed steps.   Whether you need to ask for a raise, write a business plan, shop for health insurance, prepare for a tax audit or even plan a funeral, LIFEMAPS can get you on your way.  LIFEMAPS is divided into four parts:

The Basics:  Includes how to approach any problem, and the resources available for resolving it

Career and Business:Includes How to search for a job, finance a business, fight discrimination in the workplace, or set up a home office

Personal Finance: Includes How to repair your credit rating, reach your retirement goals, negotiate a price for a house, or prepare your home for sale

The Consumer: Includes how to choose an HMO, buy a car, find the lowest airfare, plan a wedding, pay college tuition bills, or care for a sick parent

LIFEMAPS is the how-to book for the 21st century; the perfect manual that refines thousands of words worth of information down to its practical essence:and makes absorbing information as painless as possible.
