Jeffrey Zaslow Has Some Advice for Forward Readers

Jeffrey Zaslow, a Wall Street Journal columnist and the co-author of “The Last Lecture,” will be the Forward’s guest Bintel Brief columnist, answering reader questions during the month of March.

When he was 28, Zaslow beat out 12,000 other applicants to replace the high priestess of advice, Eppie Lederer (a.k.a. Ann Landers), as The Chicago Sun-Times’ advice columnist. He dispensed advice for the newspaper from 1987 to 2001. Zaslow went on to become a senior writer and columnist for The Wall Street Journal, writing the “Moving On” column about life’s various transitions.

Alongside the professor Randy Pausch, Zaslow co-authored “The Last Lecture,” a book based on an uplifting lecture Pausch gave after having been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. “The Last Lecture,” published last year, has spent 45 weeks on the New York Times Best-Sellers list.

If you’re facing a challenging transition, if you have a quandary related to a lifecycle event, or if you just could use a little advice from Jeffrey Zaslow, please send your questions for the Bintel Brief to Questions selected for publication will be printed anonymously.

The first installment of the Zaslow’s Bintel Brief will be published on Monday, March 9 at
