The Principle of the Path {A Review}

To be honest, when I became a member at, when I chose this book to read & review, I realized that I hadn't really ever heard of Andy Stanley. The name sounded familiar, but the title of the book is what made me decide to read this book.
I am a huge fan of self-help & personal growth books. It seems that many people have many opinions on life, spirituality, God, friendships, marriage, parenting & so forth. I actually really enjoy reading many perspectives & being able to take bits & pieces of advice & ideas from many intriguing people. Andy Stanley is no exception.
The Principle of the Path is a great book for people at any stage of their life. It is a book with practical guidance & lessons about where one currently is in life & some ideas of how to get to where one wants to be. I say practical because when you read this book, you completely understand what he is saying; as if you've heard it before. However, the refreshing reminder that there are many things in life to distract us & without a solid goal, plan or dedicated mindset of understanding to what your mission is in life, you will never get there. Plain & simple.
All in all, I thought this was a well written, practical, easy to understand & read book. I wasn't blown away by the epilogue at the end, but other than that, I would recommend.
