The Storyline process is a life-plan-help that is rooted in story, with plentiful paradigm-shifting opportunities along the way.

I've been thinking about the Bible and story for several years now, and this simply focused many things I've come to believe toward worthwhile action.

I don't think everyone will respond as favorably as I did, but I think anyone who is willing to take to process seriously is sure to have at least a few epiphanies.

Rocked my world. Inspired and changed me. Made me determined to live a story worth telling. Lead us to our next son ( and we thought we were done!), a little boy in China who has multiple and severe heart defects.
I feel like this book was written for people who are not very self-reflective or who need direction in helping them be more self-reflective. The book offered very little to me that I have not already figured out in my life, simply by living it and being self-reflective about my experiences. I feel like the book is far too expensive for what it is. Essentially, it is a workbook. So, at 100 pages and huge Arial font, a good number of these are just lines for you write things. I suppose maintenance ...more
More of a 'workbook' or even a 'system' (complete w/ website for setting and monitoring progress), you get as much as you put into it.

Also, the book is just really the start of it all - it guides you thru identifying your roles, ambitions, incidents, conflicts and ultimately your climactic scene for your story.

It cd be pretty easy to just phone it in, but I think if you do it well, it can really make a big difference in your life.

Storyline Finding Your Subplot in God's Story: Donald Miller - I love anything Don Miller writes. This is a great work book style read. If you've not read or listened to any of Don's work with writing the story of your life - this is worth it. I really enjoyed it.
Tim Crabtree
Would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who wants to think about where their life has been and where it's going. Best done with others for feedback and to stimulate further thinking.

I just can't get into Miller's paradigm of "life as narrative." His memoirs are all so much richer.
so far, this book is rocking my world. when you purchase this book from amazon, you are offered a free audio book version. normally, i don't like audio books. but this one, wow, this one is powerful. so far, i listen to the section again, immediately after finishing it. it's deep and meaty, but simple and true. and i feel like i have already seen myself transforming since listening to it. i'm only on section four. . .and already i want to recommend it to everyone.
haven't completed the timeline or really gotten into the online tools yet, but excited to get after it. i have a feeling my rating might be five stars after i really participate with this book.
Love the idea behind the book, and completely agree with the psychology: based on Viktor Frankls logotherapy. Give your life greater meaning and that brings more joy than anything else ever could. is great. Definitely would recommend this book to anyone.

This is not what I expected, but it was fantastic! Miller has captured well a wonderful way of looking at our lives and beginning to plan to live better stories. I found this very helpful.
More of a workbook than a book, Storyline provides a useful tool for living a great story. I like the focus on narrative rather than rules or checklists.

Awesome! Awesome! Such a great process to walk through...I am glad I started my year off with this one!
