In addition to her engaging composite representations of the “real life” obstacles she has helped her clients navigate, every chapter of her energized narrative is accompanied by actionable advice—via her “Apply the Wisdom” bullet points. No doubt, time-deprived readers seeking personal improvement are weary of yet another self-help book, yet another road map to self-realization that leads to nowhere. But, it will take readers no longer than the first chapter of Life Your Way to see that Wood delivers on her introductory promise…

And the conflict between our rational and emotional mindsets is addressed head on in Life Your Way with Wood’s wisdom, practically and a dash of grace.
