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.
