Format: Hardcover
The content is common sense... but that kind of common sense that we sometimes ignore. I found that it was a excellent reminder that each of our actions take us in a certain direction and if you don't like where you are... you need to do something differently. I found it addressed what to do when you don't know what the long term consequences of your actions could be as well has a reminder for all those little daily decisions that we know where they lead but do them anyways. I found it inspiring and an easy read that I found myself nodding the whole way through.

Excellent Read - I wish I had read this book many years ago, when I was making my life decisions. Andy is able to make the very "out there" concept real and simple. It is direction of the Path that we set ourselves on that determines our outcome - with solid Biblical examples of good and wrong path directions, Andy walks us through real life reasons to pay attention to the paths we choose.
I think this is a must read for every couple getting married, every graduate from high school, and anyone contemplating a life decision. Armed with this principle - we can get to where we want to be.

The Principle of the Path
Overview
I grew up believing in fate ' that whatever happened, it was meant to be. The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley presents an interesting argument that each decision we make places us on a path for the rest of our lives. It puts us in the driver seat of our own lives and allows us to feel some sense of control over our successes and failures.
This book is an excellent as Andy intertwines many of his own personal stories with the key messages of his book. His language is easy to read and his stories bring his theories to life. The book includes the following topics
' Why bad things happen to smart people
' Should have seen that coming
' The heart of the matter
' Getting help from your friends
' Attention retention
' Road Closed
Greatest Lesson
The greatest lesson I learned from this book is that we must have the foresight to consider the long-term impacts of our decisions. Each decision is not an isolated event, but rather one additional step on our life plan. The book offers some wonderful advice about how to select and stay on the right path throughout life. For example, Andy suggests that you should become friends with individuals who are further down the path you want to be on and seek advice from them on how they got there. This is much more effective than surrounding yourself with friends who are at the same stage as you and may not have the wisdom and experience to help you move forward in your path.
'You will never reach your full potential without tapping in to the wisdom of others' (page 133)
Recommendation
I recommend The Principle of the Path for anyone (young or old) who is looking to understand why they have ended up on the path they are on.

Format: Hardcover
Andy Stanley is the son of Charles Stanley. As such he is a second generation leader but one who has gone on to establish his own "path" apart from his Father and has been successful in church planting and ministry expansion to where his voice is more his own than what you might expect.

I was somewhat impressed, that while Andy does refer to his famous father there's not the usually continued name dropping and anecdotal appeals within the book that would be somewhat characteristic of someone with a famous name seeking to capitalize upon that association.

The writing style is conversational and I rather suspect that the book is an expression of what was originally spoken or preached as it has the quality of a revised sermon, albeit one that is strong on story telling to reinforce what in essence is a very simple message.

The message of the book is less heavy handed in its message than what it could been and so in that regard it exercised some restraint and avoided going in to moralizing and hammering those mistakes that all of make in life. The author's willingness to be self-deprecating and to draw examples from his own life that illustrate poor paths was noted and appreciated.

In the end however, and perhaps this is a reflection of this reviewer's background, this felt like a somewhat warmed over offering of what has been preached for years and is pretty common material in many churches. The authors writing style and voice (which is very reminiscent of his father's) is what carries this and the material is pretty standard fare.

3 Stars and worthy of a quick read.
