This book is an interesting collation of experiences that seems to go against the concept that everyone lives a “linear life.” We no longer just: grow-up, go to school, graduate, get a job, have a family, experience a mid-life crisis, get old and die. We were never guaranteed to experience life in that order. In fact, life is not linear at all. We don’t all have access to the same resources, the same education, or the same social structures.
However, the narrative we choose can define the rest of our lives. How we choose to handle these moments of crisis will determine our satisfaction in life. Bruce Feiler’s book sets out to illustrate another way of looking at life. And, suggests tools to handle the challenges we all eventually encounter - regardless of the order we see them.
