The Compass is a life-transformation novel that will guide you on a journey of self-discovery. At the core of The Compass are specific lessons about belief systems and understanding who you really are in order to live out your destiny.

Jonathan, the main character, escapes his suburban life after a tragedy that alters his plans for the future. Paralyzed by grief, he decides to journey across the globe in an effort to realign his inner compass. He sets off with a backpack leaving behind his career, friends, family, and home. His travels begin in the dry desert of Nevada, and continue on to the pristine mountains of the Adirondacks, and then to a medieval village in Romania. In each destination Jonathan encounters one pivotal person who offers a major life lesson, and he begins to realize that each individual was placed there for a reason.

The Compass a metaphor for the journey of our lives.

In the tradition of The Alchemist, The Compass provides you with specific life lessons about authenticity, self-empowerment, and believing in your dreams. As humans we are all connected - by love, pain, and sometimes even by tragedies or events we cannot control. Each one of us travels a unique path, yet we are linked by experiences and emotions. In this connectedness, there is life. Download and start listening now!

    " Reminds me of the Alchemist....a good story about "finding yourself" and forgiving. "

    " A watered down The Alchemist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olivia | 2/19/2013

    " Read it in a night so considering the quick read (and the fact I paid a dollar for it) I thought it was good! "

    " "Sometimes you must let go of the life you had planned in order to make room for the life ahead of you" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samantha Brimmer | 1/6/2013

    " I wasn't very impressed with this book. I feel like all books about "finding yourself" that include travel are stories that really only apply to people with money. Whatever happened to the lesson of The Wizard of Oz, that happiness is to be found in your own backyard? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chica | 12/8/2012

    " A book that made me cry. It is a novel that talks about how to live and move on after getting scarred in life by learning how to forgive and find a way out of tragedy, despite the despair and death of some of our dreams and remembering, "there can be magic in ordinary things." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wella | 1/15/2012

    " This book, so far is one of my favourites. I was really amazed by how jonathan continued his life after what happened to his family, Though he got lost, he still managed to live up to his journey and pick up each of his broken pieces. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janelle | 7/30/2011

    " A one-sitting read, very engaging and thoughtful, chock-full of metaphors and analogies. Obviously on the metaphysical side but, really, not too gag-worthy. "

    " Quick Read. Well written, interesting story with lots of metorphorical messages.The author gives the reader a lot to think about. "
