Author Julia Keller discusses 'quitting' in her latest book

Julia Keller

Quitting is an appropriate topic for Ann Fisher on her last day as host of All Sides, as she retires after 40 years of working in the journalism field.

What if everything we’ve learned about quitting, from the Protestant work ethic to advice from our parents to not give up on piano lessons, is not true?

Keller joins us to discuss her latest book Quitting: the Myth of Perseverance and How the New Science of Giving Up Can Set You Free.
