When you're a young adult on the cusp of adulthood, sometimes it can be hard to choose your path in life because of the sheer abundance of choices and distractions around you. In A Well-Launched Life, Bruce Sheridan chronicles his experiences as a young adult and how he overcame significant challenges to carve out a fulfilling and successful life for himself with the guidance of God. Growing up as the fourth child among eight siblings, Bruce had a hard time up until his teens because of his abusive parents. His traumatic experiences pushed him toward harmful vices such as drugs and alcohol, restraining him from fulfilling his potential. But God intervened, and Bruce successfully overcame his struggles. In this book, he offers input to young adults on a wide array of topics -- from financial advice to relationships and sex and much more.

A Well-Launched Life works as a self-help guidebook as well as an intriguing memoir. Through personal anecdotes and lessons he learned from his own life experiences, author Bruce Sheridan provides valuable insights for young adults to navigate one of the most significant and tumultuous times of their lives. Whether liking someone who may not like you back or debating the merits and demerits of pre-marital sex, Bruce has convincing arguments on a variety of topics related to one's life. He divides the various stages of life into Sheridan Stages and showcases how each stage has an impact on the next. A humorous, sometimes heartbreaking memoir that serves as a useful self-help guidebook, A Well-Launched Life is a must-read for young adults.
