Kirkus Indie Review
"After carving his own path toward self-discovery and personal growth, one man offers his story and the lessons he’s learned along the way. Debut author James could barely recall his childhood for much of his adult life. But after years of difficult relationships, dissatisfaction with his career and bouts of depression, the time arrived for him to confront his painful, dysfunctional past...Mired in grief and confusion, James ultimately faced his fears, took risks and began seeking support through myriad avenues of therapy. Though often emotionally trying, James’ life continued to offer him spaces to explore his own sense of self, what truly made him happy and where he fit in the world. Three sections highlight his journey, the first chronicling the greatest traumas of his life, the second offering tools to tackle one’s own path to self-discovery, and the third highlighting other observations..." "When milestones are hit or insights revealed, readers may feel it with him..." "At his best an engaging, vulnerable and analytical writer..." "His greatest feat is bringing his past painfully full circle..." "A deeply sincere guide for survivors of past trauma in search of self-actualization."
