Book Review: Life Compass Living

Life Compass Living: A guide for growing up and growing old together by George H. Fuller, Jr. is a step-by-step guide to approaching both everyday life and life’s challenges and transitions with intentionality as well grace and preparedness. The book moves with energy and despite its thickness is a quick read.

I found the overall intention of the book to be inspiring and likely to be especially valuable for those preparing for or experiencing transitioning to caregiving roles for aging parents. Although the content is intended to have a broader application, caring for aging parents or dealing with the unexpected serious illness of a family member is probably the most useful setting for these steps.

I suspect that a book is not the best vehicle for this content and that it would be more useful redesigned as a workbook to accompany a multi-day workshop or class to guide people through the practical application of each phase in their real-life situations. Despite that, I expect this book will be a valuable resource to return to in the future and will be adding it to my bookshelf.
