The Journeyman Life: The Not-So-Perfect Path to a Life Well Lived is a self-help guidebook by Tony Daloisio. After being raised in a home by an obsessive-compulsive mother diagnosed with neurosis, Tony Daloisio goes on to attain a Ph.D. in Psychology. His expertise in the field of human psychology through the decades enables him to write a set of guidelines to help readers live fulfilling lives. According to Daloisio, there are four types of masculine identities based on biological, physiological, and psychological markers. They are divided into archetypes of Kings, Magicians, Warriors, and Tricksters. All of these archetypes have a Mature and Shadow side. He further encourages readers to change their perspectives on how they view the world, including their surrounding environments, by planning, setting goals, and preparing themselves for change.

The Journeyman Life: The Not-So-Perfect Path to a Life Well Lived is an inspirational handbook that provides solutions to some of the everyday problems of daily life that almost everyone undergoes. Author Tony Daloisio draws from his own personal experiences and cites numerous experts in the field of psychology to explore the different facets of what it means to be a fully functioning adult in modern society. He explains the key differences between the Traditional and Emergent Models of Masculinity, encourages readers to exercise and meditate, and shows the ways one can be self-aware while going through the various adult stages of their life. The Journeyman Life is a well-researched and insightful handbook that anyone interested in human psychology should read. Highly recommended.
