An optimistic book, well-articulated and worthwhile; an antidote to doomsday prophecies about the future of work."

Steve approaches the subject of entrepreneurship less from a "look what I did and do this yourself" mentality to lessons that can be applied each day and even in your current role. The way he does this, and I found most refreshing, was through a mix of ancient philosophy (Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, etc) combined with work by today's futurists (Adam Grant, Alec Ross, etc), that often ties into best practices for people looking to change their current work situation.
The final piece of the puzzle that made this book whole-istic (pun on its way...) is how much Steve also values personal well being. Whether you have trouble focusing, find yourself overwhelmed at work, or just want to live a healthier life Steve firmly believes that to be fully present as an entrepreneur you must also have your physical and mental health figured out.
This is a great read and something I will be returning to time and again for years to come. Thanks Steve!
I found it very enlightening and would highly recommend it, especially if you are an employee wanta-preneur.
