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.

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.

Interesting book for those looking to retire. Most people worry if they will have enough assets to retire, but the real question is, "what will I do in my retirement?" This book helps you find your purpose.
