Authoring Your Life: Developing an Internal Voice to Navigate Life's Challenges
"Geared for a popular rather than an academic audience, this book is designed to assist young adults in moving from dependence on external authorities to taking charge of their own life decisions. Secondly, the book serves as a guide to significant others who wish to help these individuals more effectively address the challenges that life brings.
Written in comprehensible language that student staff as well as professionals unfamiliar with the concept of self-authorship can understand, it contains fascinating in-depth narratives that demonstrate the evolution of life during the young adult years."--Journal of College Student Development
"This book should be considered an essential addition to the library for the young professional just entering a career in academic advising. "--NACADA Journal
This is a guide to addressing life's challenges and competing demands. It will help you to reflect on the problems and setbacks you encounter to discover your own voice, uncover your authentic sense of values, build your confidence, and find meaning in your life.
In addition to helping you identify the phases of your journey to self-authorship, Marcia Baxter Magolda offers reflective exercises and questions to help you uncover your strengths and identify the barriers that may be inhibiting you from building the internal, psychological compass that will serve as the foundation for your journey.

Review: Authoring Your Life: Developing an Internal Voice to Navigate Life's ChallengesUser Review - Lindsay - Goodreads
Great concept, but the book became SUPER repetitive. Honestly didn't read all of it because it was mostly just case studies of various people and how they made decisions in their lives basked on their internal voices. Love the idea of self authorship, though! Read full review
