Review:

After 20 years devoted to helping people manage the fine and fearsome art of making change, the authors of LifeLaunch really know the terrain, having mapped it in exquisite detail. From the subtle changes that reorient us to the radical changes that redefine who we are, they teach us how to move with and not against the currents, and help us face what may ultimately be the great work: coming back again and again to life. --Gregg Levoy, author of Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life
