My Reality Check Bounced!
The Twentysomething's Guide to Cashing In on Your Real-World Dreams

by Jason Ryan Dorsey

      Jason Ryan Dorsey's new book, My Reality Check Bounced!, is an enlightening and invigorating book for twentysomething's, or readers of any age who are looking to point their life compass in a new direction. Getting stuck in non-fulfilling vocations, relationships, or life in general, knows no demographic. Dorsey lays out where you are today and the steps to get your life back in the best order for you. Be it fast-tracked executives, or picking the wrong dating partners, his book is a no-nonsense, easy-to-pick-and-put-down workbook for peeling back the layers to find your own path to happiness.

The book has great call-out boxes, called Instant Messages, which provide the way to move you forward. Also included are Reality Check shaded boxes that give you the before (Bounced) and after (Cashed). Chapter Four explores how you can get unstuck and find a way out of an unsatisfactory situation. This road out he calls "Unleash Opportunity" and weaves threads on how to recognize opportunities that already surround you. He's serious on his mission to help you become whoever it is you want to be, without the preachy-guru haze. Dorsey is a real guy with real ideas that everyone can use.
