Definitely a must-read and highly recommended. Whether you're looking for a fast read waiting in the airport/on the plane, or just sitting outside enjoying a lazy afternoon, this book will be time-well-spent if you're looking to enrich your own life.
Enter The Good Life Crisis. This isn't one man's ruminations on the subject. Rather it is a collection of fascinating folks Nick Shelton has met in his travels throughout the world. The collection is diverse: priests, monks, but also business people and even a surfer dude thrown in for good measure.
I think the selection of articles do point to a central thesis by Shelton, but it isn't obvious or heavy handed. This might be good or bad depending on your point of view. Shelton does let his interviewees speak independently and there is even some slight contradiction and tension between the views of some of the contributors.
This is not a self-help book that prescriptively tells me exactly what to do. This is not a how-to. But after reading this, I can't help but have my interest piqued enough to question how I live my life and spend my time. I think that is the mark of a good book.
