I normally do not read fiction so I knew going into reading The Map that I would need to prepare myself for a little fiction. It was well worth the preparation. The first half of the book is fiction and the second half is not. I really enjoyed the adventure of the first half of the book in finding “the map”. This helped set the stage for the second half of the book which shows us three journeys in a man’s life.
This is a must read for any man wanting to understand his role in life. Understanding the three journeys will help any man bring balance to his life and deeper understanding of himself. While reading about the journeys and related stories for each one, gave me some much needed insight about events that happened in my life. It helped to look back on these events and realize what I could have done differently or the person going through that event could have done differently.
This book will definitely help me in the future. I plan on reading it over again every six months so I can stay on track and find new ideas that I might have missed from the previous reads.
