I received a copy of Wisdom Meets Passion by Dan Miller and Jared Angaza from Booksneeze for my honest review. So here is my honest review.

I was excited to read this book because it claims to show readers how to find work that "integrates your skills, personality traits, and passions; provides a sense of meaning, accomplishment, and fulfillment; be a person's greatest vehicle for living out God's purpose and calling; and ensure an unexpected flow of income and ultimate wealth." However, I feel that this book just didn't apply to me.

First of all, I have no idea what God's purpose and calling is for me, and this book doesn't offer insight as to how to figure it out. Perhaps I am supposed to visit the 48Days.com community online (based on Miller's other book 48 Days to the Work You Love) and pay for a coaching session.

Second, the personal stories told by Miller's son Jared Angaza (yes, son - Jared changed his last name because of his love of Africa) were kind of annoying. I get it. Jared lives "outside the box." He shunned the American way of life - big houses, fast cars, material yearnings - to live and work in Africa with his wife and adopted son. He's been incarcerated. He wrote and passed a law for women's rights. The only furniture his family has is a mattress with homemade mosquito net. They run a sustainable clothing line.

Well, good for them but I like furniture. I like living in my house. I don't think of myself as materialistic. I just want my home to look nice and have enough money to pay the bills and do things that we enjoy doing while also having the free time to do those things.

Wisdom Meets Passion: When Generations Collide and Collaborate by Dan Miller and Jared Angaza combines the wisdom of the Greatest Generation with the passion of today's 20-somethings in a book filled with advice for the person who is looking to live their life with more authenticity, courage and faith.

If you only follow your passion, you may end up taking too many risks in your life and career. But if you only follow the wisdom of the elders, you may not take enough risk and end up with a boring, mediocre life with a job that you dread.

In this book, you can learn how to use your unique traits and combine them with dedication and your dreams to live the best life possible. This book is both edgy and insightful and offers a unique perspective by this dad-son team. I also liked how their perspectives included work domestically and abroad. I also liked the solutions for today's reality of job losses, lay-offs and self employment.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed Dan's first book, 48 Days To The Work You Love. His second book, No More Mondays, let me down a bit. I was hoping Wisdom Meets Passion would reclaim the excitement I felt while reading 48 Days.

Sad to say, it didn't. Reading through Wisdom Meets Passion felt old. Like something I've already read before. And that's because a lot of it was.

Dan used many posts from his blog to write this book. It's somewhere around 90%+ posts from his blog. He even states so in podcasts and interviews he has done since the release of the book.

While this doesn't necessarily make the book bad, it made the book hard for me to read and decreased my enjoyment.

Format: Paperback
There are 2 tools in life that can be both beneficial and dangerous to a person. WISDOM & PASSION.

"Wisdom without passion can feel like having that BMW in the driveway with no gas in the tank. And passion without wisdom can appear as a tricked out 1957 Chevy with no steering wheel."

These two life tools/gifts go together. They balance each other, motivated each other, and strengthen one another. There are people who have deep zeal for life but no wisdom to channel that zeal & passion properly. Therefore, they exist like a loose cannon and expect everyone to live at full-throttle. This simply isn't the case. There are those however, who exist with deep wisdom and experience but have no inhibitions or passion for life. Therefore their wisdom leads their selfish constipation of pride, that it truly stinks to be around them.

These 2 authors, father & son, have provided a text that takes Wisdom & Passion and channels them together to accomplish great outcomes. Wisdom is the fuse and Passion is the spark that allows a proper explosion of life. Within these 250 pages are truths, applications, and encouragements that show you how and why wisdom and passion cannot exist without each other.

This is a resource that must be placed in the hands of the generation that has gone before us and the generation that is present, as well as the one coming up behind us. Do not be surprised if this book becomes a staple for generations to come. This is a solid, comprehensive resource that will leave a mark on readers.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
