Author Po Bronson
What is this book about?
This is a book describing the stories of about 70 people who answered the question and proceeded to make major life / career changes. The author himself went through several major changes, from a bond trader on Wall Street to his current profession of writing. In researching his book, the author interviewed several hundred people and visited with them, seeing how they each dealt with that question. Out of the population he interviewed and got to know, he selected these cases based on the relevancy of the story for universal learning.
Who should read it?
Every one who wants to go deeper into the question of how to live an integrated and happy life. Particularly people who are currently contemplating major changes in their lives.
Why should he/she read it?
Because the stories in that book are interesting. You have the sense that you meet the people yourself and therefore their stories become more credible. If the stories are more credible, if the heroes and protagonists are people who live next door, you then have the courage to ask the same questions, take your own risks and make the changes necessary for your work and life satisfaction.
What are the main points?
To quote the author:
“MONEY Doesn't Fund Dreams
SMARTS Can't Answer The Question
What am I good at? is the wrong starting point. People who attempt to deduce an answer usually end up mistaking intensity for passion. To the heart, they are vastly different. Intensity comes across as a pale busyness, while passion is meaningful and fulfilling.
PLACE Defines You
ATTITUDE Is the Biggest Obstacle
