“Healthy living and modern medicine have given our lives longevity. With Purpose is a guide to making the most of all that time—by making a difference that means as much to you as to the people around you.” (—Mehmet Oz, M.D., co-author of YOU: The Owner’s Manual)

If you're approaching retirement or at least in the second half of life, this is an important book to read. It gives promise of living our elder years with grace, love and purpose--what could be better?

I picked up this book after listening to the author on a CD available in Success magazine. And, I have a client that works with non-profits so the book seemed appropriate for me to read. My simple review is this; I have started a relationship with the Make a Wish Foundation because the book reminded me that we should make a difference in the world in addition to making money and feeding our families. I can't think of a better way to recommend a book then to state that action was taken as a reaction to it. Although the book focuses on an older population anyone that wants to think about their purpose on this earth should read this book.

I had the immense pleasure to be in one of Ken's talks (at Singularity University) , dec 2012. Since then I read some of his books and they are all great. In some point in time becomes a bit repetitive. This one is good even though one could consider it obvious. In lieu of this I recomment Viktor Frank's Meaning of Life.

In the first 10 pages I knew what this book was about and would be a waste of my time reading to the end. Dychtwald should have just written a paper about his ideas and let it go at that.
