What is good about all of these books (the 4 hour work week also comes to mind) is that reading something like this periodically is what some of us need to keep re-lighting that fire to take action towards our goals. I identified with several things Bob reveals about his journey, particularly incessant daydreaming, and also identify with the trap of having too many ideas of directions I could go and spreading myself too thinly for any to be successful.
If you having been thinking about creating your own career and need a little inspiration, give this a try. This is not a title I would spend a ton of cash on however.
Even while releasing 10 albums in the last eight years (I say this only to make a point), I've still maintained the "fallback" day job. And I've grown increasingly frustrated because each year that passion to just simply be a full-time musician/producer has increased. "...your dreams are held captive on a never-ending back burner that has lost its flame." - you can lose the picture of yourself living out your passion if you surrender to the frustration. Don't surrender!
"It's the brave act of designing a life that makes the most of expressing and sharing who you authentically are." So well said Bob! This can be done. Yes, you're going against conventional thinking. But why be conventional if it's not who you authentically are? After reading this book I feel so much better about who I actually am and the desire to live that out.
