Dr Laxley Stephenson.

Author and life coach Dr Laxley Stephenson says his book UnEarthing You is aimed at offering guidance to readers about self-improvement.

"It is a comprehensive guide on the journey of self-discovery and personal growth. It's designed to engage interactive guidance to help you to understand your deeper self with realising your fullest potential. It's about helping the unique individual to become the person that they're meant to be," he told the Jamaica Observer.

The book was officially published on August 20, courtesy of Victorious You Press.

Stephenson hails from Little London in Westmoreland, but is currently based in Atlanta, Georgia. He started out at Little London Junior Secondary School [now known as Little London High School]. In his former years, the author attended Michigan State University, and earned his doctorate from Walden University Business Administration with a focus on leadership.

In terms of other publications, Stephenson has begun putting the pedal to the metal.

"I have a business agreement with my publisher. In the next three years, I'm gonna be writing 12 books. The next book I'll be writing will be titled Building Bridges To Strengthen Parent-Child Relationships, and it will be done from the perspective of father-son, father-daughter, mother-son, mother-daughter. So, there will be four books from that," he said.

Stephenson is also imploring readers and the general population to do some introspection to discover their purpose in improving the world.

"We all have a purpose in life. What we sometimes fail to forget is that we are yet to discover our purpose. It's essential that, as soon as we can and as early as we can, we achieve that discovery — not because it's important to us, but because it's part of the implication for others," he added.
