Overview


For the many inspired by Anthony DeStefano's A Travel Guide to Heaven -a remarkable tour of the pleasures God has in store for us in the next and everlasting life-more inspiration is here in A TRAVEL GUIDE TO LIFE, offering an enlightening tour of the kind of deeply meaningful and happy life we can live here on earth. DeStefano outlines the path that can lead each and every one of us to renewed faith, understanding and fulfillment. With simplicity, honesty and a personal and practical look at the challenges God places before us, he outlines a reassuring and hopeful framework for living the life God has designed for us all ... even if we're not sure (yet) that we're true believers.

DeStefano offers hope and optimism to everyone-committed Christians as well as struggling doubters, agnostics and even atheists-whether we've lived exemplary lives or are sinners who've lost all hope, whether we're struggling to keep a roof overhead and food on the table or are seemingly successful and surrounded by material wealth.

This frank and inspiring guide incorporates that crucial element so often missing from other self-help and personal development books about living a happy life: spirituality and a living, working faith in God. Clear and basic "Lifetime Principles" are at its heart, to be followed whenever we are ready to begin, no matter the lives we've lived, no matter the baggage we carry, no matter the faith we've had (or lacked) up until now:
Accept yourself as one person - body, mind and spirit, all connected and interrelated - the way God created you.

Make a decision to start over - you can do it any time, on one tiny part of life or everything in it - and begin living the way God intends.

Take action - start with just one small step and each successive one will be easier - following the example God gave us as Jesus moved from infancy to manhood and wisdom, His momentum growing step by step.

Put God first - most importantly of all - wholeheartedly if you can, or hesitatingly if your heart still harbors doubt.


DeStefano's personal no-holds-barred yet joyful style is always positive, always encouraging. Travelers who take this incredible journey with him will come to truly understand that when we take up the crosses in our lives - the whole of our lives, the good and the not-so-good - and follow God, He will transform it all, making everything brand new and granting us the strength, peace and happiness for which we yearn.

So take heart. Take hold of the powerful path open to you on the pages of A TRAVEL GUIDE TO LIFE. And take your place in God's happy universe, living out the humble requests asked in the prayer taught by Jesus Himself: "...Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."

While the book provides solid self-help techniques, Anthony helps show us that the way to happiness is to know, love, and serve God in this life, so that we might experience everlasting happiness with Him in Heaven."

His new book is a must-read for any person with blood flowing through their veins.

    Hands down, this is the greatest Self-Help book I've personally

    Hands down, this is the greatest Self-Help book I've personally ever read - and I've read A LOT. 
    Every time Anthony DeStefano releases a new book I am doubtful that I'll enjoy it nearly as much
    as the last, but I always wind up eating my words. This is the best book I've ever read about changing
    your life for the better and finding TRUE purpose. And it's not some long list of things you HAVE
    to do or buy in order to follow. It says on the cover "Transform Yourself from Head to Soul",
    my first thought was "Yah...Right. Sure." Then I read the book. All I can say now, is DeStefano delivers.
    It's one of those books that you can't put down and want to read over and over again! His quick, simple
    and direct tone combined with the logical, profound, and motivating content will challenge the most
    devoted Christians and most indecisive "freethinker" alike. Don't miss out - You will be equally impressed!

    Good reminder of the basics

    The book presents the basics of Christianity in a self-help format. DeStefano writes in a conversational tone that moves quickly. I really liked the introduction cons treating the misery of a Hollywoood director against the joy of a priest and a pastor. The book offers practical advice for daily life with heaven in mind. If you enjoyed his other books or if you enjoy the self-help style then you will want to read this work too.

    Reviewed by Mary DeKok Blowers for Readers' Favorite

    A Travel Guide to Life: Transforming Yourself from Head to Soul, by Anthony DeStefano, is a one of a kind self help book. With a Biblical perspective, and a tough, no-nonsense attitude, he gives advice on changing your life with hard-hitting realism such as if you don’t feel appreciated in your job, you have to either learn to enjoy it, or get over it, or find a way to get a new one. If you have an alcohol, eating or other addiction, the internet is available to everyone free of charge in the library. Get on there and find the advice and the professionals who will help you. If you choose not to, you’re choosing to stay where you are.

    Anthony DeStefano is not a doctor nor a psychologist, but believes he is uniquely qualified to give health advice and emotional advice. As a well known Christian author, he has the expertise of the Bible to rely on and a close relationship with God to guide him. His tough love approach will make you want to try his advice to get aerobic exercise just 3 times a week, and read the Bible every day, and begin or return to your prayer life. Not to spoil the surprise, but there is even a 2-part eating plan that may be all the diet you ever need. A Travel Guide to Life gives easy to understand tips like this, but don’t be deceived. These seemingly simple tasks will enhance your life and transform you in a way that you would never imagine.
