I suspect Dan Balestrero's approach is because he has known so many people with so many snags in their lives, that he felt the need to untangle many things. But finally about chapter 15 he really gets to the point of the book. He lays out a great plan to get what we really want in life, satisfaction, He has collected enough wisdom by this time in his days on earth to really have something valuable to share. He knows the inns and outs of all the methods of human persuasions and getting what we really want in life. You could pick any of the later chapters in charge a lot of money for the wisdom that's there but he keeps piling it on. It reminds me of when my mother served us supper from the pans onto our plates and kept dishing it up until we were full.
I think this book is for people who are pausing to decide to change. It might be somebody old like me reinventing myself during my retirement. Or it could be somebody switching between jobs in mid career. And it might be especially helpful for the new graduate or the new hire into today's job market. It's likely that people will need to adapt many more times in the future that they have in the past to stay gainfully employed and, may I say, enjoying their working lives.
In these days of contentious social media and broadcast TV, I might hope that we could all learn how to truly get along with each other by learning Dan's approach.
The first half of the book laid the groundwork for the second quite nicely. After chapter 15, I paused to breathe and really let everything from that chapter sink in before moving on (not necessary, but recommended).
Dan seems like an experienced teacher. He clearly relays his approach to living a successful, grace-filled life. Highly recommend!

Interesting psychological take on things in general, and seems to be laid out in first half problems and second half solutions. Normally don't read this type of book but since TRIED to get it from netgalley with no success but on ku thought should give it a read because not writer's fault, and did ask for it because sounded interesting.
