I was already a fan of Jennifer Garvey Berger’s work, but I can say that this is the book of hers that I will gift the most. It is a lovely, accessible, deeply insightful and astonishingly concise presentation of some of her ideas and teachings about growth and adult development, with a nice balance of theory, practical advice and narrative (which I’m often wary of because it can stretch out an idea to the point of boredom - but not here!). The book is only about 120 pages, packed with insights useful for leaders, coaches and consultants, but also anyone serious about their own growth and development. I will benefit from, and work with, these insights in my marriage, parenting and helping friends, in addition to within my formal coaching/consulting work.
I will reread this book at least 2-3 more times so that the learnings deepen. Highly recommended!
Final - and only slightly hyperbolic - comment: our world needs this now! (Not just this, but many things and very much including this!)
