At a time in my own life when I was working through a major life change, I found this book to be a terrific asset to my ability to be resourceful and focused. In fact, after I finished reading it one evening in bed, I got up and began writing down ideas to implement the author's principles and ended up working out issues and writing plans far into the night.
This is a great book to help readers become involved in manifesting a life path that more accurately reflects the desires of the heart, and offers practical suggestions to get moving in that direction.
At the same time it reminds readers to make allowances for the future by not only living within our means, but by savoring the fruits of our accomplishments (the marshmallow) in nibbles, rather than gobbling the entire fruit at one sitting.
For a society filled with entrepreneurs who have no focus, employees who hate their jobs and consumers with over-extended credit lines, this is a book that brings common sense and heart back into the mix of making a living while leading a meaningful life.
