What it does do is break your life into several chunks by age - and then after "Coming of Age" and "Coming into Your Own" is the most excellent chapter - "Self Realization" and then it ends.
Childhood and Adolescence are each as long as "the rest of your life" - which disappointed me and made me wonder about the age of the author.
I would have liked to have seen more inspiration for the writing itself - and some basic tidbits about the writing process. To its credit, the book suggests three different methods for gleaning details of your life - and then it stops.
It is like a meal that is missing the main course.
The salad is there, there is a side dish - maybe even a roll or two - but the main course is missing. Your stomach is still growling and you are being ushered out the door. The salad may have been tasty and the side dish savory and yet... there is still something missing.
I appreciate the attempt - and hope this one is fleshed out more on a revised edition.
