Product Details


“This book is a gift. In a world that changes ever faster, we need a path toward resilience and peace of mind. April Rinne’s words are arriving at just the right moment.”
—Seth Godin, author of The Practice
Flux is a breath of fresh air. April has brilliantly balanced the personal and the professional, heart and head, to bring original insights to individuals and organizations about how to not just survive but thrive in change. She reveals uncanny and often unconventional wisdom about what it means to be grounded in your truth, to lead with equanimity, and to lean into the future with hope rather than fear. In a word: wow!”
—Kathy Calvin, former President and CEO, UN Foundation
“If you fear change, read this book. Flux will help you discover the power and beauty in the invisible, the imperfect, and the unknown.”
—Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human
“The leaders who master a flux mindset—planning and adapting around the unknown to responsibly serve our organizations and communities—will shape the world in the coming decades. This book provides thought-provoking tools and tactics to exercise and strengthen our ability to take on uncertainty.”
—Mariah Levin, Head of the Forum of Young Global Leaders, World Economic Forum
Flux is both wisdom and a wake-up call for all ages. April’s style is that of a dear friend who celebrates you for who you are and encourages you to evolve. She brings her whole self to Flux, sharing personal stories of loss and transformation alongside firsthand accounts of how change is viewed around the world. You’ll never look at change and uncertainty in the same way again.”
—Chip Conley, Strategic Advisor for Hospitality and Leadership, Airbnb, founder of Modern Elder Academy, and New York Times bestselling author
“As I read Flux, I kept thinking of its applicability to young people, including and perhaps especially the young women and girls across the world who want nothing more than to learn and lead. April brings an inclusive and global perspective; she marries disciplines deftly and creatively; and she acknowledges generational difference with compassion and a wide lens. . . . This book has universal relevance and true appeal for both the strivers and the dreamers, who will learn how to harness their inner flux in service to a restored and just world. 
I devoured April’s book in the new year. Its tone and message aligned beautifully with my own resolutions around equanimity and personal refinement. She helps you see change from a place of hope rather than fear, showing you how to anchor yourself in what really matters and giving you courage to just keep swimming, as my daughters would say. We all need this book as our own personal Flux Jedi—a gentle teacher at times, a more assertive coach at others. A gift of a book from a gift of a human.”
—Suzanne Ehlers, CEO, Malala Fund
“At a time when the status quo is perhaps at its least compelling, it’s hard to think of someone better than April Rinne—thoughtful, brilliant, and kind—to help us rethink our paths, priorities, and hopes.”
—Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis Professor of International Law, Harvard Law School and Harvard Kennedy School of Government
“As we all ask, ‘When will we go back to normal?’ April has created a compelling argument for why we just may not want to. Too much learning and adaptation has taken place in the past year, due to a pandemic and otherwise, and as April so carefully describes, with the right mindset we can unleash superpowers that uniquely enable us to thrive in constant uncertainty and change. Drawing on her deeply personal and professional experiences, April shows us how slowing down, exploring, and trusting may just lead us down a path of greater personal fulfillment while unleashing greater human potential.”
—Heather McGowan, future of work and learning expert and coauthor of The Adaptation Advantage
“At once both highly practical and deeply moving, Flux gives readers not just the inspiration to embrace the unknown but the tools and superpowers to do so with clarity and intention. This is what should be taught in all schools.”
—Jonathan Kalan, cofounder and CEO, Unsettled
Flux is the book for our new-now-next-never normal: timely yet timeless, full of wisdom, and rooted in humanity. It nourishes your mind, heart, and soul alike. It is both a balm for today’s world and a thoughtful road map for tomorrow.”
—Nili Gilbert, institutional investor and World Economic Forum Young Global Leader
“In a world full of uncertainty, April has a gift for making you feel less anxious about what you don’t know. In Flux, that gift is in full force. She helps you see change from a place of hope rather than fear, showing you how to anchor yourself in what really matters and giving you courage to take the next step.”
—David Kessler, author of Finding Meaning
“April Rinne will help you to replace the old static script of your life with a flux mindset: a new way of thinking and being in the world that will help you write and revise many drafts of your own future. Developing your flux superpowers will help you navigate an uncertain world, tap into your sense of purpose, and make the best risk decisions.”
—Michele Wucker, author of The Gray Rhino and You Are What You Risk
