4 out of 4 Stars – Review of ‘Drift to SHIFT’

“Miller explains five factors that assist people to transform their suffering into a positive change as hope, personal control, social support, forgiveness, and spirituality. Miller shares the narrative of several men and women who experienced gut and heart wrenching pain alongside insurmountable obstacles but were victorious in the long run.

I found each story to be emotionally moving; the pain described whether emotional or physical was easily palpable. However, the magnanimous decisions made by the individuals who had experienced the insurmountable obstacle never failed to amaze me. Miller’s sharing of Andy Wirth’s mishap during a skydiving adventure cured me of my fleeting wish to one day go skydiving just for fun. I loved every story shared in this book. I appreciated the summary of takeaways that the author provided with each chapter.

The book reads as a well-edited text. The readability of the book flowed seamlessly despite one or two minor grammatical errors. Without hesitation, I rate Jody B. Miller’s From Drift to Shift a page-turner that earns 4 out of 4 stars. It is a thought-provoking, inspirational, easy-to-read book. I would recommend this book for readers who enjoy reading memoirs, inspirational and spiritually uplifting narratives. One of keepsake many keepsake sentences I would cherish from this text is, “Live a life of love and joy regardless of what you have to face.” – P.R.

Book Reviews of Bestseller – ‘From Drift to SHIFT’

I thoroughly enjoyed “From Drift to SHIFT” because I am somewhat of a self-help book junkie and its value to me was inestimable. I went from being coached to coaching myself. The timing of the book was serendipitous because I had been drifting for years and only recently experienced a major shift in my life. Had I read Jody B. Miller’s book sooner, I might well have had a different story to tell. However, there is something to be said about the right timing, the entire process of becoming, and the advent of hope. It had a much greater impact on me than scores of other inspirational based texts. – latosek93

I must say I was truly inspired by the book because it made me want to push my limits and find ways to bring change in my life. It is a great read for anyone who is seeking individual change in their everyday life to achieve a fulfillment. The book motivates the reader that nothing is impossible and it is never too late to go for what you want. That helping people is a superb way of finding happiness while you still get to make a living out of it. I particularly liked the end of the chapters ‘takeaways’ that captured the main lessons to drive the point home.  – Grace A.

Even if you are one of those that don’t need to make a shift, this book will still be an interesting read and may bring up ideas and strategies you haven’t ever thought of. – Cate V.

After reading this book I could not help but believe that it came to me at the right time. I particularly loved the essence of the book as a whole in serving as a source of hope to many who seem to be drifting in their work or family life. This book has the power to revive, quicken, and reinforce a broken mind and spirit, therefore, I would recommend it to anyone seeking a little hope to keep up in trying times. – Crane B.
