What if an equation could help you understand and even master what you’re experiencing right now?
In this age of uncertainty, many people feel like they’re clinging to a dinghy amidst a perfect storm. But successful entrepreneur Chip Conley has discovered that by using simple word equations, it’s easy to build the grit, insight, stamina and joy that allow us to become our best, highest-functioning selves.
Conley’s equations are a simple yet profound way to help your emotions work for you. They are mantras that we can turn to for stability in times of uncertainly, reminding us to focus on the things we can change (‘the variables’) and leave the others (‘the constants’) alone.
Joy = Love – Fear
Anxiety = Uncertainty x Powerlessness
Given the complex times we live in, people are looking for ways to distill some basic truths in life. Emotional Equations is a new, visual lexicon for mastering the age of uncertainty.

‘You can never go wrong with Christina Lauren!’ Paige Toon
‘A true joy from start to finish’ Kristin Harmel
Macy is settling into an ambitious if emotionally tepid routine: work hard as a new paediatrics resident, plan her wedding to an older, financially secure man, keep her head down and heart tucked away.
But when she runs into Elliot – the first and only love of her life – the careful bubble she’s constructed begins to dissolve. Once upon a time, Elliot was Macy’s entire world – growing from her gangly teen friend into the man who coaxed her heart open again after the loss of her mother . . . only to break it on the very night he declared his love for her.
Told in alternating timelines between Then and Now, teenage Elliot and Macy grow from friends to much more – spending weekends and lazy summers together reading books and talking through their growing pains and triumphs. As adults, they have become strangers to one another until their chance reunion. Although their memories are obscured by the agony of what happened that night so many years ago, Elliot will come to understand the truth behind Macy’s decade-long silence, and will have to overcome the past and himself to revive her faith in the possibility of an all-consuming love.
The heart-breaking and heart-warming read from No. 1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren, author of The Unhoneymooners and The Soulmate Equation.
