Miller destroys the myth that work sucks, everybody hates their job and everyone is looking forward to retirement. That was the way I was raised. It was the way my parents were raised, my grandparents, we can go on and on. Reading the book helped me understand my feelings better. Then it went beyond that. He does give you guidance on how to go about doing what you love.
I have to disagree with the gentleman who gave the book a 1 star because he "couldn't quit his 6 figure job because...." and Dan Miller doesn't give him a solution. Its not really his job to help you figure out how to make as much money and pay off your debt. Its really his job to help you realize what you really want to do and how to go about getting that job. He gives a great example of the ER doctor who wanted to drive trucks. I'm betting he had as much debt and made as much money as the attorney. The ER doctor doesn't quit his job completely and throw away all of his schooling, he worked part time on the weekends in the ER, when he wanted to and spent his week days happily driving a truck.
It really comes down to what do you want to accomplish and what are the steps necessary to do that and this book meets that criteria. So you can spend the rest of your life talking about what you can't do or you can change course and realize what you want to do.
The only drawback that I found in this book may be particular to me; basically, I found the author overly optimistic about how everyone should find work that they love. I think that cleaning toilets is a necessary job that someone has to do, but I strongly doubt that someone cleaning toilets will get up in the morning, be passionate about clean flushes, and call themselves a 'sanitation engineer.' I think that janitorial work is fine, honorable work (I've been a janitor myself), but I'm not as certain as the author is about people discovering that mining, cave diving, janitorial work, or other dangerous occupations are people's dream jobs that they love. Perhaps I am wrong and this is just what you think or need; in that case, enjoy the book.
Even if you agree with my gripe, the book is great to have and will serve you well.
