  • About Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around


I wanted to personally take this opportunity to thank you, Jan, for being our guest on our radio show.  We found you to be a delightful guest and the interview was informative and humorous with suggestions for our listeners that really work!  Your book, “Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around” is just outstanding and your dedication to the subject is exemplary. We would love to have you back on our show in the future!

She is a delightful guest with thoughts to improve all of our lives.

I recently had the pleasure of having Dr. Jan Carpman as a guest on my radio show. She demonstrated a keen understanding of the difficulties directionally-challenged people have finding their way and described solutions in an easy-to-understand and simple-to-apply manner. She definitely knows her stuff and conveys it in a way sure to be useful and engaging to your listeners.

Jan Carpman’s directional tips and stories about how people do (and don’t) find their way around were engaging and informative. She was fun and easy to interview and I highly recommend her as a great radio show guest.

Jan Carpman has taken the subject of personal navigation and made it relatable and interesting. Her extensive knowledge of the topic, coupled with her easy, engaging manner make her a great guest. Plus she really helped us and our listeners with our own navigational challenges! We look forward to having her on the show again.
