Format: Paperback
Alex Blackwell's vulnerability and willingness to share deeply personal events are awe-inspiring. It's impossible not to find pieces of yourself reflected in the stories shared. Through his powerful writing, Blackwell shows you what's possible if you create change and most importantly, gentle ways to make that change happen.

It's been a delight to share Alex and Mary Beth's healing journey from their participation in BreakThrough. Alex's vulnerability about his journey bring credibility to make the book more than theory. Getting and keeping clarity and traction for change is critical and "Saying YES to Change" is a wonderful collection of wisdom from many sources to dig in and keep moving forward. It's a book to schedule for frequent re-reading.

Alex is a gifted writer and his new book, "Saying Yes to Change," speaks from the heart sharing his story of what influenced him to create change in his life. Alex writes from his heart, sharing his past, even the most painful parts, so that we can be inspired, realize that we are not alone, and know that change is possible. It's a wonderful story with lessons to guide the reader to see the benefits of doing the inner work to create a life of peace and love. This is one that you will reread often.

As others noted, there seems to be some special formatting used in the ebook which is not supported by the Kindle software. Entire lines of text are invisible, making the text appear incoherent.

Blackwell's message shines through every page of "Saying Yes to Change" -- and his warmth, positive attitude, and gentle nature make this a fantastic read. It's the sort of book that you can go back to time and time again, and it's written in an engaging and accessible style.

If you're not quite happy with where you're at in your life right now, or if you keep feeling there should be something more, this is the book for you. What I love most about Blackwell's style is that he approaches things in a gentle and encouraging way. You never feel preached at or pressured, just supported on your own path to change. Blackwell is honest and open about his own life and his personal journey too.

(Quick disclaimer: I helped edit "Saying Yes to Change" and was delighted to do so. I've been following Blackwell's work online for several years, and it's a real pleasure to see his book on the virtual shelves.)

I have known Alex Blackwell and admired his work for a few years now. In this, his first book, he reveals just what has made him the amazing man he is today. And in the process, he's created a masterpiece in the art of embracing positive change.

Alex's deeply moving and heartfelt story shows his readers that no matter what, one can face life challenges, get through difficulties and ultimately change their lives for the better. It is also not about just changing your life but it's about living a congruent and happy life.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone facing change in their life, both minor and major. Your life will never be the same.

If all you only see dead ends, if you only feel stress, if you only hear "should," "no" and "not good enough," pick up this book. Saying Yes to Change is a balm for every broken person's soul. Through essays and stories, Blackwell artfully and transparently gives you a look at his own journey from brokenness to wholeness. Blackwell's wife was ready to leave him and he was able to save his marriage, find meaning in his career and so much more. He was even able to heal deep wounds from childhood.
