Nakken does it again. My life was changed when I read The Addictive Personality in 2005. I wasted no time when I learned about "Finding Your Moral Compass" and now I have the tools to change my own life. I thoroughly enjoy learning from other people's experiences, and Nakken shares some of his stories to hammer his examples down. I plan to reread this title soon with a pen in hand so I can take advantage of the self inventory that is available with this guide. I enjoyed pausing in between each of the different sets of principles to determine where I find myself on the contiuum of life. With Nakken's help, I find myself much closer to the Spirit.

This well written book was a joy to read and a helpful tool to live a Moral and fulfilling life.
It is clear that Mr. Nakken understands the human spirit and the desire for growth and meaning.
I feel that having read this book there is a better chance I can live a life consistent with my true "values."
This is not only a compelling read it is a wonderful guide for what it means to be trully human.
Thanks to the Author

Format: Paperback
This book does just what it says it will. After a short introduction in which Nakken lays out his credentials as a recovered addict and long-time counselor, he gives a thorough list of character traits in pairs of good and bad. (What philosophers call virtues and vices.) He helpfully sees each pair as the ends of a continuum, and invites the reader to think about where s/he is on this continuum. For each pair, he provides a story--I assume true but with names changed--of someone who moved toward the good end of the continuum. I'm writing a book on virtues and vices, and I was really impressed with his excellent, clear, concise explanations of each virtue or vice. The definitions alone are a growth tool, as they show so clearly why the good qualities are good, and the bad ones bad. In a very useful set of appendices, he provides tools for working with these pairs of qualities in your daily life. Nakken sees the spirit, and a spiritual life as essential to a good life, and explains why, but does so in such non-religious language that I believe no one of either a definite tradition, or no religious belief at all, would be offended. A fine book.

Format: Paperback
Almost every culture and religion has some form of the moral principle,the "Golden Rule". It is simple yet so difficult to live. Mr. Nakken's book is the equivalent of the Golden Rule for adults. It is about the moral dilemnas we face and how we face them, from the annoying drivers on the road to bigger issues of honesty, integrity and compassion for ourselves and others. It is about our power of choice every day to be the kind of person we aspire to be. The wonderful teaching stories in this book are about people who came to a fork in the road and chose.
