The wait is over. After 46 consecutive five-star reviews, the first non-five star.
Ecstatic to finally get some critical feedback. Seriously. It’s wonderful.
“A very quick read that gets to the heart of mid life. I was a little bothered that the author kept saying ‘you know this.’ All I kept thinking was, then why the heck am I reading this book if I already know it.”
So grateful to the person for investing their money to purchase, investing their time to read and their time to review.
The author could have said in the book, but did’t, that it was written to his young son as a life guide in case something bad ever happened to the dad.
The author (dad) was being intentionally repetitious with the reminder to his son, “You know this.” Yet the dad also is keenly aware of human nature:
To know is to do. To know and not do, is to not yet know.

Yesterday morning a social media note:
Good morning! I wanted to tell you that I am re-reading your book. Reading slowly this time. I value it so differently this time. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Asked a few questions and in reply:
I truly have tears in my eyes right now. I was not in a good place when I read it the first time and I knew you were telling me something but I just wasnt getting it. I was resisting change. I now have the strength to appreciate it. Thriving not survivng. I am so thankful that I knew you because I hear your voice speaking to me when I read it. Stuck on pages 7 and 14!
At the end of the day, the book leans towards being a kick in the ass butt. And we all need that a few times in life.
