From the time we are children, we look forward to adulthood with hopes, aspirations, and a rosy perspective — until life intervenes! Dr. Andrew Kane takes readers through his concept of the three metaphoric bridges everyone must cross as they journey through adulthood.

Each bridge — beginning with adulthood’s new responsibilities to reaching midlife and finally, choosing to simplify our lives — presents challenges along with benefits when traversed. Whether you are dealing with midlife issues or wanting to enhance your wellbeing, Dr. Kane clearly explains how everyone can thrive as an adult and live the life we imagined when we were young.

This thoughtful book is a must read. It will put your life into perspective regardless of your age. Three Bridges presents a clear vision from a clear thinker and trusted advisor. It’s for everyone who is an adult.
