Many of us are prevented from living successful lives by 'nonsense'. Nonsense describes absurd, foolish, or meaningless words, ideas or conduct. It is purely subjective: you are likely to see nonsense when you disapprove of it. For example, you might see the following statement as nonsense: it does not matter whether you understand your life; it matters that you live it. Actually, that is almost a bit of nonsense. What really matters is that choose to live your life. Your freedom to choose makes you a creator and even deciding not to choose is an act of creation. That's right, you are creating your life even when you are choosing to live with nonsense. This book is a personal journey about making choices. It's about choosing to create a successful life that, in the end, makes sense to you. This book explores the following concepts: nonsense & the nonsense divide; why your path matters; 5 steps to crossing the divide; pitfalls on your path & how to avoid them; the broken...

Oct 15, 2009"Crossing the Nonsense Divide" Mr. McIntosh meshes state-of-the-art knowledge regarding human nature with a quiver full of specific strategies and skills to empower you to cross the Nonsense Divide and find your path. This is a bold, unique and creative synthesis of finding your path, in both theory and practice, to be found no where else. This is not a simplistic and superficial "airplane" read; it will challenge you to your conceptual depth, to your very soul.
May 22, 2006"A Real World Approach to Sanity in Life" Over the years, I've read - with little success - a number of books purporting to show me the way to maximize my life. Mr. McIntosh takes a different road by simply presenting his own perspectives and thoughts involved in our everyday lives - many of which loudly resonated within my own world. He offers real world ideas and suggestions for coping with and overcoming the noisy "nonsense" of our lives and to cross over his "nonsense divide" into our own realm of relative sanity. I found his writing to be very thought-provoking, often requiring me put down his book to digest some of his ideas and consider how they actually apply to my life. I was actually led, or pushed, over my own nonsense divide recently. My employer had been restructuring and reorganizing and re-this and re-that with huge amounts of unending turmoil and pressure. I finally decided that was enough nonsense and began walking my own path back across...

Many of Mr. McIntosh's thoughts & ideas very much helped me in understanding my frustrations and organizing my considerations and decisions.< Less
May 21, 2006"Crossing the Nonsense Divide" This is not a read and absorb book, its a read and do book - an act-ion book. McIntosh has put his finger on the heart of two of the major problems facing us. Firstly, to shed the baggage that hampers our growth and secondly, to commit to do - to live - what is required for each of us to reach our personal potential - whatever we choose it to be. In our quick-fix, image-worshipping, nonsensical society, McIntosh's voice is an island of sanity, echoing ancient wisdom and encouraging us to drop all the nonsense in our lives and to become what we are capable of being. I have seen how this no nonsense approach has changed lives and how it has helped those who have changed, to unwittingly help others. It is never too late to begin from where you are. Read it!
