The Secret of Transitions Jun 17, 2008
Transitions. We've all experienced them. It seems that just when everything is going well and life is good that chaos breaks loose. The company you've diligently worked for downsizes and you are out of a job. Your spouse tells you that your marriage is done. Health issues remind you of your mortality.
The Secret of Transitions is part memoir and part self help book. The author shares his own transition experiences as he left a job because he felt bored and then realized that this was merely an excuse. It was at this point that he had to become very honest with himself and figure out what he really wanted to do with his life.
The author's story is subdivided into a number of chapters. Each chapter looks at one particular step within the transition process. The author's experiences serve as both an example and inspiration for the reader. I like this format because the author's words seem more like mentoring than traditional self-help.

The Secret of Transitions: How to Move Effortlessly to Higher Levels of Success
Jim Manton's, The Secret of Transitions is an exceptional work of motivational inspiration, heart-felt pain and joy, success, failure, determination, communication and the reality of hope and how one's thinking can take them down any road.
A car in the hands of a drunk can lead to destruction, pain and loss. The same car in the hands of a skilled and dedicated professional can lead to victory, success and fulfillment.
Sit shot-gun with this curious, powerful and energetic author as he transitions from a young man in the turbulent `60s Vietnam era, back home in the US during the Reagan years of tech-corp explosions and on to higher-learning and a quest for self-purpose and mastery that makes him the incredible life coach he is today.
As a young professional Jim Manton's The Secret of Transitions was a must read for me. I can relate to the author. Whatever "transitions" you may face in life Jim Manton's story will offer you powerful, real-life experiences, pains and triumphs you can draw from to help you transition from one level of success or fulfillment to the next.
An absolute must read for all Apr 14, 2008
This book helps to awaken the senses to the fact that the world around us can be as beautiful and accepting as we choose to perceive it. Jim states, "And as I awaken, I am finding a very friendly universe." Thank you Jim for your intimately honest and forthright expression of the journey of life and how we all can be completely present to the wonder and magic of our existence. This is a must read for ALL.
Uplifting and Powerful Feb 14, 2008
In Chapter Six of The Secret of Transitions, author Jim Manton reveals a powerful and intimate moment from his own life. He was a soldier in Viet Nam, and his squad was taking heavy fire from the "enemy." In the midst of the noise of guns and injured soldiers screaming, he found himself suddenly looking into the eyes of a North Vietnamese soldier. In spite of the intense programming to "kill the enemy," he had an epiphany, he saw the man as a friend and was unable to raise his rifle and shoot him. It was a transition that called forth a different way of looking at himself and the reality of his life. Jim Manton made a powerful spiritual transition in that one moment. Now, years later, he has given us this concisely-written book to help us create our own transitions. Highly recommended.
Fearless Transition...Are You Ready? Jan 29, 2008
The back cover of "The Secret of Transitions" reads "A Life-Changing Book!" However - I found it to be "A Reality-Changing Book." I first read Jim's book while going through 3 major transitions...Moving 1600 miles away, reinventing my business (and myself) and choosing to follow my passion of music and singing professionally. Reading this book transformed my fears into excitement and opened up a whole new way of thinking that made my transitions flow effortlessly!
If you have already experienced some degree of success in your career, business and relationships, but your heart is telling you there's more - The Secret of Transitions will guide you on many levels and take you beyond your imagination...beyond your fears! It's a book/experience that makes sense to your mind, speaks to your heart and dances with your soul and life's purpose. Are you ready?
