New book: A Field Guide for the Hero's Journey



I've written a new book with Jeff Sandefer, an entrepreneur and founder of Acton Academy, entitled A Field Guide for the Hero's Journey.  The description is below.  You can find out more by visiting the official website for the book.



Do you feel trapped, bored, stuck in a meaningless routine? It may be you think you’re too ordinary to ever do something special. Perhaps you’re afraid that if you try, you’ll fail.

The startling truth is this: Just about anyone can do great things, can live a life that’s remarkable, purposeful, excellent, and yes, even heroic. If you want to be a hero, you can be.

How?

That’s what this book is all about.

Will you choose to do it? Will you decide to journey heroically, instead of spending your life merely marking time?

If so, this is the book for you. Welcome to your heroic journey.



"Hero's Journey should be required reading for all young people entering the business world who dream of being entrepreneurs and are seeking inspiration."
 --Philip Anschutz, Chairman and CEO, The Anschutz Corporation

"Many 'new ideas' in today's leadership writing are recycled from timeless exemplars in literature, philosophy and sacred texts. Hero's Journey draws upon those texts but wraps them in poignantly personal lessons from a world class entrepreneur and a worldly statesman priest."
--Louis Kim, Vice President, Hewlett-Packard

"A Field Guide for the Hero's Journey" is an amazing book. Inspirational and practical at the same time and guaranteed to address virtually any "do I have what it takes?" questions you may have about a life of entrepreneurship. Jeff Sandefer is the educator better suited than anyone on earth to give lie to the adage, "Those who can, do. Those who cannot, teach." He's been there, done it (incredibly well), and now teaches with a caring and compassion I have experienced in few other successes.
--Dr. Steven Berglas, psychiatrist, formerly at Harvard Medical School and current Forbes columnist

Jeff Sandefer and Rev. Robert Sirico have national reputations as extraordinary teachers who change the lives of their students forever. Guided by the premise that everyone has the potential to be a hero, this inspirational and practical book will help you focus on the right questions that will enable you to lead a life of purpose, achievement, and, yes, heroism.
--Adam Meyerson, President, The Philanthropy Roundtable
