Realizing You: A Novel Approach to Changing Your Life by Ron Doades and Susan Sloate is an engaging book that is motivational and uplifting. The author shares his thoughts on living through a story which makes it more relatable. Robby Aihn is the author of the runaway bestseller, Realizing You. Though his book speaks about the principles for good living, he finds his world is falling apart. His conference in Dallas attracts a wide audience, which also includes his estranged wife, his teenage daughter, a businessman and also his own co-author whom he had never noticed. All are searching for some meaning in their lives and move towards understanding and fulfillment.
The characters and the development of the story are entertaining and all the characters and the incidents are effective; it makes readers learn with them. I enjoyed the idea of having a story to impart the messages and ideas on how to improve ourselves and live an enriching life. Each character goes through various incidents and situations and the lessons that can be learned have been communicated with clarity; they can be picked up and understood easily by readers. Robby Aihn and his book will motivate all readers.
I enjoyed the book because, compared to other self help books, this one has a story that pulls in readers and makes it real. It is much easier to understand the concept because of the story that makes the thoughts more fluid and believable. An enjoyable and uplifting book with some realistic characters and situations which will help in changing your perspective about living.
