Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In this self-help guide with a fantasy-fiction twist, sociologist, life coach, and O: The Oprah Magazine columnist Beck continues in the spirit of her earlier work, Finding Your Own North Star. Here, her clients' stories illustrate the progress and pitfalls of finding one's purpose in life. Their journeys, sparked by challenging exercises, are adventurous, and the narrative is hilarious. Beck also incorporates themes and outcomes that she explored earlier in her memoirs Expecting Adam and Leaving the Saints. Much of her advice, laid out in a three-stage process, may initially seem contrary, counterintuitive, or repetitive (e.g., telling your life story backwards). In the first stage, readers identify goals and eliminate obstacles. In the second, they envision the future, find messages in dreams, and forge a middle path between the past and the future. And in the final stage, they live their destiny, observing coincidences, working miracles, and breaking new trails. A concluding chapter shows the process at work in Beck's own life. While the author's New Age spirituality may put off some, her writing style will appeal to fantasy and adventure fans, not to mention the sizable audience who reads her O column.
