Shivers and Signposts

As we wander through life, it often takes us a while to figure out what is truly important. You may have some sort of plan about what you think you will do, but it is often not how things turn out. In essence we make plans and life just kind of happens.

The Book

Len Richman's book Shivers & Signposts is a memoir about his life. During his life he has marched to the beat of a different drummer. And by doing that he has had experiences that many individuals have not had. He tells about the experiences and the lessons he has learned from his life journey. He tells stories about how he got to the different places in his life. I really like that he doesn't just tell about the rosy part of leading a life different from the ordinary, but he tells just how stressful it can be through over commitment. But through the entire journey his life is interesting.

What I Learned

This book actually reminded me that it is fine when things don't run the way we planned. There are times when we will be able to have control over situations and there are times when we won't. It's how we handle these times that is really important. And he also pointed out just how important it is to say no I can do this. You need to recognize that you do have limits to what you can do. That's something I need to keep in mind.

Who Should Read This Book

Anyone who is interested in personal growth. It's always a good idea to listen to individuals who are older than us when they provide advice in life. It's even better if you receive advice from an individual who hasn't been afraid to follow their own path in life. So many people ignore their inner voice that is telling that what is really important in life. They are full of regrets. It is refreshing to let others know that you don't have to fit into a mold in order to find happiness.


Yep, the author provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for a review, but I told you what I really thought of it.
