Such is the way with Jesse Giunta Rafeh's sparkling, insightful and well crafted book. I began reading it under the presumption I'd travel from page one to end, as I do most books. But very quickly, Life Launch betrays itself as a road map with all sorts of interesting pockets to explore. Here's a chapter on dealing with anxiety(timely for these times) there's a section on bringing the body into balance and another on creating healthy friendships. What splendid side trips these are!
The book's seduction is in its clear, unassuming prose during which the author isn't simply telling us something; she's pitching us multiple examples of situations from her own life as well as from the lives of her(anonymous) patients. At times, I felt like I was reading a good novel with plot lines that I simply never wanted to end.
Life Launch pitches itself as a book that can be used to guide youthful readers into adulthood. Well into my sixth decade now, this book has the feel and bearing of one that is not necessarily geared for any particular age. Road maps, after all, aren't targeted for any one particular demographic and that holds true for this book. "You have the ability to create whatever you want in your life: excitement, fulfillment, peace, fun, growth, love," Rafeh writes. What better teaser can there be than that for the potential reader. Pick up a set of these maps; they're timeless, the lessons ageless. You'll enjoy the journey.
In summary, an easy to understand statement of the problem, a structural framework for the problem, and a simple 3 or 4 step process to solve the issue.
I wish I had had this book when I was younger, but readers like me who are already in orbit, as well as young people who are struggling now, can benefit greatly from the compassionate and practical advice, and the insights into finding light where there has been darkness.
One current running through this book is the idea that it is OK to ask for help, and other people can help us. Some of us think we should be self-reliant, and it is weak to ask for help, but we need each other.
This book is life-altering. There is comfort in knowing that others have been able to overcome despair and not just survive, but thrive.
The book is a tribute to the human spirit and particularly to the inner strength of the author and the loving support of her parents and friends.
