I loved this book! It was brilliant and very thorough in its scope of covering everything a person needs to create a new life for themselves. From finances, holistic health, beauty, setting up your home, spirituality, nutritious diet, exercise, organizing, time management, and resources for getting help if you are without a home, in a crisis, or need out of a dangerous situation. Addison keeps things interesting by inserting humorous observations along the way. He keeps the reader engaged and in ...more

What I like about your book so far is the way it is in a progressive chain of events. For example, homelessness - a prior crisis led to a chain of events that led to this crisis (true for me). You also don't feed into the victim mentality too much. Yes, once in a while we are in the wrong place at the wrong time, but most of us are just reaping the results of past decisions.

I plan to use your two types of core commitment techniques. I like the comfort zone challenge as well. The book is easy to

Recommends it for: Everyone
I’ll begin this review by saying WOW. That actually pretty much sums up my response to this book… But it’s a pretty flimsy “Review”. A New Beginning is the most thorough book on this subject I have ever read!

It’s a very good deeply instructional guide to reality. “A New Beginning” covers every topic and area of Life we should have been taught from birth straight up through, but were, for whatever reason, not taught.

I feel quite fortunate to have stumbled upon a copy, and I am quite honored to sh

I always enjoy reading books that offer ideas for change. Addison C. Arthur has presented us readers with a book filled with easy to read and understand steps for understanding why we might be 'stuck' and how we can move forward!

The powerful core message for me is that regardless of what the past has held, we ALWAYS have an opportunity for a New Beginning. The choice and responsibility belong to me!

This is a certainly a book I recommend for teachers, leaders, students, parents, and anyone inte
