Press Release – Take The Challenge: Make This The Day That Changes Your Life


Take The Challenge: Make This The Day That Changes Your Life

Jersey City, NJ, August 28, 2012 – Called a ‘precious gift’ by one reader, Life Coach Dr. Andy McCabe’s remarkable book, The Gifted One: The Journey Begins (Balboa Press) is filled with practical advice that offers hope in a world seemingly entrenched in problems. If someone asked you today: What do you need to learn to live your life to the fullest? Would you answer nothing, or everything? One thing is sure; whatever is missing – this book will fill the void and get you on the road to a happier, healthier and more productive life.

The Gifted One delivers provocative, life-changing material written in an entertaining, humorous story format with characters both men and women can easily identify with. This well-written, knowledgeable guide challenges readers to find their happiness within and invites them on a transformational journey that will change their outlook forever.

McCabe’s use of story-telling to reach readers is a creative way to get his message across. His lead character is a typical, hard-working family man with his own set of problems but whose life changes the day he enters the New York subway and feels a tug on his sleeve. Looking up to find a giant of a man with piercing eyes and smelling like the Hudson River, he is unsure if this might be the last breath he takes. When the giant quietly asks for money to buy refreshments, the man realizes he used his last quarter on a subway token so hands over all he has – a $5 bill.

He is surprised when the giant then hands him what appears to be an old journal and says it will help ‘all that ails you in life.’ What McCabe’s protagonist doesn’t know is that this blind messenger actually represents the world’s greatest healer and anyone who ‘passes the test’ of kindness will be given life-altering knowledge that will not only transform them but will change the world!

The man is invited to spend time at a remote desert ranch where he is taught consciousness-raising skills by the renowned healer and, after completing the initiation ceremony, he is given six months to complete an extraordinary mission before returning to the ranch once again. During this time he falls in love with the housekeeper at the ranch – and their roller-coaster love story adds yet another dimension to this already intriguing story. The purpose of his final mission will literally blow the socks off readers and leave them gasping – but wanting more!

As indicated by the many rave reviews on,The Gifted One draws readers in from the first page with a challenge to begin their own life-changing journey towards achieving higher levels of reality, wisdom, spirituality and an overall healthier life.

Andy McCabe has been a guest on many radio and TV shows, including a one-hour interview on CBS Radio with Allison Hayes, ‘The Rock Girl’ (recipient of the 2011 Psychic of the Year Award from Om magazine). A graduate of Rutgers University, Andy is an associate professor who teaches courses in behavior disorders.

Dad of Divas Review: “This book was filled with so many messages of hope and inspiration. The author does a great job at sharing his message through a slight humor as well as true caring and heartfelt messages that all can understand. This book challenges readers to find their own passion as well as their own potential for the future…so truthful and honest and makes you truly feel and think about your own future and the decisions that you wish to make to move you forward toward your own future.”

Nano Khilnani, Biz India: “This book is about the life-transforming story of a frustrated writer named City Bear…This is a book that keeps the story moving fast, and makes you not want to keep the book down or pause to take a break. Dr. McCabe’s pervasive theme in The Gifted One is that our egos are the principal cause of conflict in the world today…Our egos come in the way of our happiness.

Dr. McCabe reveals to the readers how to change their lives for the better, and gain happiness. Effecting change in ourselves to become more caring individuals is the critical value I derived from reading this instructive work crafted in the form of a narrative by Dr. McCabe. Changing the world to make it a better place to live in for all of us begins with changing ourselves for the better, instead of blaming others for their shortcomings. At the end of this book, Dr. McCabe gives readers a forty-day challenge…forty days after you’ve read this book, email us at our website – to let us know what you’ve done to transform yourself and, at the same time, our world.”
