According to Rosenstein, "The organizing theme of this book is creating and living a `total life' that includes your work, friends, family, professional colleagues, and affiliation groups. In this way, you can consider all of the elements of your life together and think of how each affects the others, now and in the future." This indicates to me that Rosenstein sees his role as being that of a travel agent to help each reader plan the itinerary and then, once the reader has embarked upon a journey of personal discovery, serve as her or his guide.Read more ›
Individuals who are not big readers and have little time or energy to read Drucker's books will enjoy and benefit from reading this book. Others like myself who have read a considerable amount of Drucker's work will also benefit from revisiting the essence of Drucker and, I suspect, most will discover a few nuggets of wisdom they had not run across before. I did.
I have benefitted from reading "Living in more than one world." After reflecting on what I learned, I may eliminate some of my current activities that have not been working well and try new ones that are more in line with my core competencies. Anytime a book has such a life changing and practical effect on me, I inevitably end up recommending it to others.
The content left me considering my life and whether or not I'm "living in more than one world." Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to enhance their life in all areas
This is certainly a stimulating book and will be especially helpful for those looking to make a fundamental shift in their life, such as a change in social interactions, work environment, type of work or life goals in general. I highly recommend it.
