The Goodman Group, senior living and health care industry leader, has released founder John B. Goodman’s memoir on audiobook. His book, The Road to Self: Reflections from a Soulful CEO, was published in Spring 2016 to help readers discover how a deep connection to inner self can bring happiness to personal life and professional life. After his unexpected passing in 2016, Goodman’s legacy lives on with the new release of this 3-disc audiobook set.
   “John’s always said that writing The Road to Self would be worth it if it helped one person,” said Craig Edinger, dear friend of John and CEO of The Goodman Group. “His spirit, his generosity and his willingness to share these lessons have touched the lives of so many. John would be pleased to know his vision is being carried on with this easily accessible audiobook.”
   Among the major takeaways from John’s journey is the importance of living in the present moment, practicing acceptance without judgment and showing compassion and gratitude in all our relationships. John’s holistic passion was to help people find a path to joy and wellbeing. Since the book’s release in October 2015, more than 7,200 copies have been distributed.
   Midwest Book Review named The Road to Self a Reviewer’s Choice book, calling it, “A very worthwhile and ultimately inspiring read that is very highly recommended for personal and community library collections.” Kirkus Reviews stated, “This book offers a sweet, succinct discussion on how to live a better, happier life.” Lee Iacocca, Harvey Mackay, Louis Freeh, Jerry Greenfield and other prestigious figures have given the book high praise.
