Comments by Book Reviewers: Reduce Drama at Work and Home
“Take the Ride of Your Life! Is a book capable of changing one’s life. And gives one the tools and courage to do just that. Author Weiss’ analogy of learning to ride a bicycle; the anticipation, the excitement, the heart-pounding fear, are used to help one to recognize that no improvements in life are made without a minimal amount of risk or uncertainty.
Shifting gears shouldn’t be so filled with fear, and with MS. Weiss’ help, doing so seems less dangerous. Instead, she offers the lure of the thrill of adventure as an incentive to risk change and strive for self-improvement.
The author explains, in her smooth and friendly writing style, that obstacles can be navigated and overcome. And, that feeling of fear and uncertainty can transform into feelings of freedom and adventure. Additionally, perhaps best of all, that we should never stop learning or exploring not only our own selves but those around us.
Author Joyce Weiss employs a realistic, though at the same time extremely encouraging manner to encourage attempts to attain our goals. Her lessons instill confidence; self-reliance and acceptance are heartfelt and compassionate. Most of all, one gets the sense that she truly cares. Her enthusiasm for her subject shines through in her casual though thought-provoking prose. Take the Ride of Your Life! offers motivation for everyone and it’s delivered with an uncanny combination of insight, warmth, and humor.”
