Review: The Secret of Transitions

| 3 Comments

I was contacted a while back to review a book titled "The Secret of Transitions" by Jim Manton. He is a life coach based out of the Phoenix area who has written a slim novel detailing ways to approach life that help with transitions.

I was contacted to review the book based on the amount of transitions I've gone through in my life. I love this type of book and find myself mulling over authors' thoughts and experiences in comparison to my own.

Even though it's a slim volume, I took my time digesting each chapter as I worked my way through the book. I found his writing easy to understand, and each small chapter gave me days' worth of ideas to mull over. I found myself reaching for my journal, prompted to write, not from his questions at the end of each chapter, but days later, once I had time to really process his thoughts.

The only drawback with this book was the idea expressed that everyone *needs* a life coach. I wondered if the point of the book was only to advertise his services? But then I decided that didn't matter. I still found great inspiration, thoughts and advice throughout. You can find it here.

Yes, but ... does the book tell me how to strip out of my wetsuit and get onto my bike faster? That would help me a lot.

I'm not sure if everyone needs a true life coach, but having someone to help you make sound decisions and guide you during transitions is a very good thing indeed.

Yeah...who can afford a life coach?!?!

Talking with a trusted friend is probably most people's best option. So many of us are going through major transitions right now, I'm sure he'll find many readers for his book.
