"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

This book taught me that there's an incredible amount effort and energy surrounding the transition process. It can feel imposing just how much choice is available, especially since there aren’t the military norms or rules to know where members stand. "Command Your Transition" offers an honest look at how military members can make the best of their transition.
Military members are often given less support to transition than to indoctrination they receive when they enter the military. And losing such an important part of their identity, military members have to pursue wholeness on their own, with & from their own definition. This isn’t easy, and shows transition is more than just finding a job, but finding a new way to win.
I would like to say thank you to all the military peeps out there for keeping us safe!
Collier’s book is focused on helping men and women who have invested over 10 years in their military career plan but don’t want to go all the way to 20 (where retirement benefits kick in). He bridged a critical gap between the actual needs of people exiting the military and what they will face when entering civilian life. He makes a point about treating the transition period as a job in and of itself and delves into the financial options available as well as crushes some of the bad advice doled out in “career counseling” offices. Fantastic! This book could be the one that gives transitioning service people a critical edge.
from a unique angle, that of a currently serving career officer. I consider
it unique since it is not a mechanized to-do or must-do list as is common
with transition literature. Nor is it the product of a career academic
capitalizing on social support systems by marketing personal philosophies
under the guise of veteran struggles. Rather, it is an assessment of the
psyche of a military member contemplating the timing of a career change.
Travis speaks directly from his heart and mind in this deeply personal book.
Whether you agree with his recommendations is not the point. Quite the
contrary, he simply guides the reader on a quest to consider the situation
facing a mid-career military members and poses a series of questions that
are geared to foster introspection. Less of a mechanical process, Travis
created a guide to empathy.
Command Your Transition is valuable tool that will spur dialogue for career
minded individuals, career counselors, and social workers in any field. I
recommend it for military members, anyone working in veteran services and
Bravo Zulu and Semper Paratus,
If you are not in the service, but know someone who is considering their transition, do something to help pay them back for all that they have done for us - - get them this book so that their life is easier and successful!
