Life Launch ... A Guide to Authoring Your Own Life
By A Customer - June 2, 2000
After integrating the inventions of man's several thousand years of creativity, life is now more complex and perhaps less satisfying rather than simpler and more fulfilling. Why? Because people now invest less time proactively authoring their lives and more time reactively accumulating "stuff." While "self-help" books with advice for "fixing ourselves" are abundant, there are few meaningful writings on how to author our own fulfilling life stories. "Life Launch: A Passionate Guide to the Rest of Your Life" is one of these precious few. "Life Launch" is a powerful, well organized set of tools for helping us author our own purposeful lives. Dr. Hudson's ingenious use of conceptual "maps" breaks even the most complex phenomena, like life transitions, into comprehensible visual models.

Great stuff!...among my very first few books on life design for the second half of my life!

Way back in the late 80's when I started to make a grand plan for leaving the corporate world at the age of around early 40's (that was my mid-life transition), I stumbled on to this wonderful book (together with several Richard Leider's books e.g. The Power of Purpose, Inventurers, etc.). Since then, this book has always been my inspiration to do what I love and love what I do. The most profound learning from this book came from my understanding - and eventual application - of the Cycle of Renewal, which the author has very artfully crafted in the form of visual concept models, systematically organised into five transitional steps.
I own and have also read the author's other book, The Adult Years, which also contains some great stuff.
I strongly recommend both books to anyone who is going through a mid-life transition.
The fieldbook for choosing and creating your preferred future!

This is truly the guide book to help you apply the masterful groundwork explained in Hudson's The Adult Years: Mastering the Art of Self-Renewal. Having experienced it's impact firsthand, I have used it in my work with countless leaders and coaching clients in my consulting practice with brilliant results for years.
It is amazing to see the lights go on when clients see the life maps in the Adult Years and the 'fire return to the belly' when they work through LifeLaunch. Make the most of the next chapter of your life and read these books! Hudson has served as a master guide and inspiration to the who's who of the world.
