Life Cartography (book review)

Life CartographyCharles Porter has a timely message for us―actually 40 timely messages―in his book Life Cartography. If you don’t believe me, perhaps you will find the subtitle of his book as intriguing as I did: “Don’t follow your dreams” and 39 other life lessons I’ve learned along the way.

This book is designed as a 40-day journey, especially applicable (in my opinion) for someone just launching out on their own. I believe a high school or college graduate would find Life Cartography especially thoughtful.

Charles has given us a candid glimpse into his life, and the thoughts he has processed after a few years of reflecting on those different life events. These lessons are then presented to us with catchy titles like “Don’t follow your dreams” and “Deal with excess baggage quickly” and “You can’t be anything you want to be.” Each chapter is short, but it will easily give you a day’s worth of thinking material as you apply the principles to your own life.

I’d recommend parents and teachers, and others who work with young adults, to pick up this book to help prepare them in a mentoring role. And then perhaps get another copy to share with someone just starting a new journey in life.

The author provided me with a copy of this book.
