Meet the Author

I’m Cara Stein. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but I took a roundabout way of getting here. Among other relics of career change and self-reinvention, I have a PhD in computer science, assorted programming skills, several years’ teaching experience, and advanced skills in wasting a whole afternoon surfing the internet.


I’m the founder of 17,000 Days, a blog about remembering that life is short and making your best days a common occurrence. Whether you're stuck, lost, or just looking to enjoy your life more, I’ve been there! I can provide advice, guidance, and vision.

    Worth the read!

    Okay, to be perfectly honest, I pictured the author cheery faced, smile from ear to ear, overly caffeinated and typing away into the wee hours of the morning. Optimism has always annoyed me, as I favored realism - but that sure hasn't made me happy! I'm a stickler for grammar and the typos bothered me a bit, but there are best sellers out there chock full of typos (does ANYONE use editors abymore?). What matters is, this book has some valid points and great ideas. I am as depressed as they come, with a slew of trauma and chemical imbalances all working against me - this book got me through a night that may have otherwise landed me back in the ward. Yes, it is quite idealistic - if you have severe trauma like me, this book will not replace your therapist or meds. However the author doesn't claim it will. The part about the neocortex containing the human spirit is of no factual evidence and thus makes me question the validity of any of the medical parts mentioned - but from what I do know, the explaination of the rest made a good amount of sense. Also I can't leave out a certain Esquire employee mentioned sounds like a total selfish jerk, but what the author took from the story about said Esquire employee can be quite useful. All in all, this book has a lot of methods that could greatly reduce ones stress if applied consistently, and I definitely plan on using many of them. I wouldn't have regretted paying for this book, but clearly the authors selflessness is just another testament to how her knowledge and creativity really did pay off in her life - and she is offering that to the world for free. That's enough to make me question my misanthropic lifestyle and wonder if happiness isn't a lost cause for me afterall.
