"Never judge a book by it's cover" as the age old aging goes and it holds true for this book. I so happen to be a thirty-something year old guy and I found myself identifying with the emotions, life experiences and triumphs portrayed and it was a delight! Well written and the descriptive nuances had me captivated from beginning to end. Pick up a copy and I believe you will not be disappointed!
The novel is a cautionary story of how we let our past hold us back, how we use excuses to prevent us from acting in the present and how to positively embrace what our future holds. Uncertainly is expected, the test is how we respond to it!
Incorporating the I Ching, an ancient Chinese divination system popular in the 70s, Pushing Upward introduces a tool that readers can use to better reflect on the big and small questions in our lives. After reading Andrea's book, I bought the I Ching and its millennia-old wisdom is a helpful sounding board and guide.
For the people who give us strength and guidance, Andrea and the I Ching remind us to value them. And, more importantly, to be a source of strength and support for others - no matter how consumed we become in our own lives. Pushing Upward is a lesson to be open and realize that "every encounter, every experience teaches us something." People come into our lives for a reason - to help, to test, and to teach.
Pushing Upward helped me to overcome my own uncertainty and reluctance to ask for help, and appreciate those that offer it. Andrea's book and the I Ching taught me to "not allow daggers of doubt to puncture your heart" and that with patience and effort, success is what you make of it.
