From the time we are children, we look forward to adulthood with hopes, aspirations, and a rosy perspective -- until life intervenes! Dr. Andrew Kane takes readers through his concept of the three metaphoric bridges everyone must cross as they journey through adulthood.

Each bridge -- beginning with adulthood's new responsibilities to reaching midlife and finally, choosing to simplify our lives -- presents challenges along with benefits when traversed. Whether you are dealing with midlife issues or wanting to enhance your wellbeing, Dr. Kane clearly explains how everyone can thrive as an adult and live the life we imagined when we were young.

This thoughtful book is a must read. It will put your life into perspective regardless of your age. Three Bridges presents a clear vision from a clear thinker and trusted advisor. It's for everyone who is an adult.


Andrew Kane's "Three Bridges" is a testament to the power of resilience and adaptation. All of us confront life challenges, and Kane is no casual observer. He speaks from painful experience, providing insight and understanding to help us navigate the years ahead.
--Paul Irving, Chairman, Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging; Chairman,; Author, "The Upside of Aging"

"At last, someone has made sense of adulthood and nailed each stage we encounter."
--Dr. Adam Gower, Author of "Jacob Schiff and the Art of Risk"

Dr. Kane's thoughtful book will make you consider questions that face all of us: "What's next?" "Who are you?" and "Who do you want to be?"
-- Christie Hind, LLM and Director of the Summit County Children's Justice Center in Park City, Utah

"After facing several career challenges in midlife, I wish "Three Bridges" had been written earlier as it would have provided me invaluable guidance and input to meet those challenges with more confidence."
-- Jeremy Davies, OBE, former Managing Partner, PriceWaterhouseCoopers

About the Author

Dr. Andrew S. Kane, OBE, Ph.D. has experienced the heights of professional, personal, and academic success yet also suffered the devastation of loss, most notably that of his 27-year-old daughter in 2008. Nothing can sharpen the thrill of success by having experienced defeat. By developing his own coping skills and building his resilience, he has bounced back from multiple losses of family, friends, and Arthur Andersen, to name but a few.

These experiences have permitted Dr. Kane to witness his journey through adulthood and to write about it using his knowledge and experience including those from his professional and academic pursuits.

Today, he positively impacts people at all stages of transitioning through adulthood by sharpening their decision making, developing their relationship, emotional intelligence, and resilience skills to enable them to be better people, achieve better results, and enhance their wellbeing in order to positively impact their employees, families, and communities. He touches the heart of many by helping people address the issues that impact their heart and tear at their gut such as deep losses or life events by addressing midlife challenges, fears, and conflicts in understanding and working with younger generations such as Gen Z and Millennials.

Over the past few decades, he has honed his own skills through managing single family offices for wealthy families, been CEO of HSBC Private Bank in Southern California and was a Managing Partner at Arthur Andersen for 30 years. He has also served on over 25 boards for profit and not-for-profit organizations, some pubic and some private. He is also Chairman of a family-owned retail business based in San Francisco.

Academically, Dr. Kane has a Ph.D. (Doctorate) and Master’s degrees in Human Development and Professional Coaching from the International University of Professional Studies (IUPS) and he is also a graduate of the London School of Economics. He also serves on the faculty of the International University of Professional Studies.

He is a Member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF), the Harvard Institute of Coaching (IOC) and last, but not least, the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA) as he is a globally certified positive psychology coach.
