-- --Peggy A. Lauria, Psy.D.
Despite the relative comfort we may have achieved in our own lives, we all experience uncertainty and varying degrees of self-doubt when we take stock of our present moment. We have all walked the fine line of living on comfortable and familiar soil while wishing we could summon the courage to take risks and consequently live a more vital and meaningful existence. In his new book Journeys on the Edge, Walt Hampton inspires the reader to make that jump, from simply getting through the daily grind to creating and living an extraordinary life.
With each anecdotal tale, Hampton shows us that we already live with enormous uncertainty in our lives. The risk is always present, but the greatest risk we face is failing to live our moments on earth with sincerity and awareness. In a series of short, easy-to-read but very inspiring tales, Hampton encourages each of us to follow our dreams, respect our intuition, and live authentically. Hampton's writing is straightforward and grounding, and at the same time, motivating and empowering. In a genre already rich with inspirational stories, Journeys on the Edge stands out for the immediacy of its message. Hampton makes a strong case for taking action now, imploring the reader to recognize at once the temporal nature of our existence. This recognition will help the reader to embrace the risks that can lead to a more authentic, fulfilling, and meaningful life. Journeys on the Edge should be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of anyone who thinks at all about how to live a better life. --Steven Cooney, Mites Program Director

Each chapter is short and to the point but also filled with several good examples as well as relevant quotes. Hampton pulls in everything from Carmelite nuns to pop culture references. No matter your background, each chapter is presented in a manner that will appeal to you, as a reader, personally.
Even if you're a 'live' junkie like I am, there's something important in this book for you. Of course, if you're a couch potato who goes to work, watches TV, and sleeps, I strongly recommend you read this book and pass it on to everyone you know. For me, it was a simple 'playing dumb' concept that struck me. Though I agreed with everything I read in the book, this concept really struck me because I'd been doing it and not even realizing it. Now I can take that and utilize it in the rest of my life. Read, read, and read!!!
I was impressed with the drive and determination found on the pages and loved the side stories the author shared with the reader. As well as the anecdotes and thoughts shared by many worthy notable figures in history.
I found it to be an easy read and the lessons are simple to interpret. The passages are well read and the imagery is easily viewed in your mind's eye.
I would give Journeys on the Edge a three and a half out of five stars. I thought it was a good read but I didn't get from it the information I thought I would. Much of the information shared can be found most anywhere, however, it is the writing style in which author, Walt Hampton, writes with that makes this an agreeable book to peruse. Who knows, you may find something inside that sparks your desire to succeed.
