Books From Our Community Of Coaches And Thought Leaders
By Alex Terranova
This book is your invitation to reflect on your life, vocalize your dreams and take on the actions that will support you to separate from your Fictionally Authentic life and create the life of your dreams.
From asshole to transformation junkie, Alex Terranova’s journey to change his life wasn’t easy. In fact, transforming from flippant restaurant-opening playboy to self-loving, self-aware coach for high performers simply wasn’t predictable.At 32-years-old, Alex woke up. He saw his life, his story, and who he was for what it was…complete bullshit.
Inspired by fictional influences and pop culture icons and media like Saved By The Bell, The Godfather, and Michael Jordan, Alex created his life by becoming the resigned charismatic “Cool Guy” who got the girl. And while it looked authentic and great, in fact his work of fiction left him feeling empty, unsatisfied, and miserable.
Fictional Authenticity will call you out on your bullshit. Read about Alex’s journey to self-awareness and change, and learn the techniques that he used so that you can do it yourself.

“Alex is truly a one-of-a-kind, no-nonsense, heart-centered, spirit-led kind of guy. And it’s a pleasure and privilege to know him as a friend.
In addition to the treasure trove of timeless wisdom and sage advice that he offers, what inspires me most about Alex and this phenomenal book, is his authentically gritty and bold – but loving – voice!
That, more than anything else, separates him from the other extraordinary self-help experts in the field.
Alex genuinely strives to make people’s lives better, and he’s committed to practicing what he preaches; he walks the talk because he’s done – and continues doing – the work. And that makes all the difference in the world.
This is a real book for real people – people like you, me and Alex. With this book, Alex didn’t just put his thoughts on paper; he put his entire heart and soul into these pages. In doing so, he shares not only his own fascinating personal journey but also practical tips, tricks, tools, and techniques for carving out your own authentic path to true success and authentic happiness, too.”
