This is a whimsical modern day parable, most of which takes place in a supposedly abandoned amusement park. Events of the past are dealt with, as well as plans for the future. Though it is a novel, it feels like it really happened. That's about as much as I can tell you about the book without giving too much away. I will tell you how it was received in my family. I read this book to my minor children, as they have a stepfather who is an alcoholic, and they have been hurt by his behavior. He's not in the home right now, but in a rehabilitation program. This book, I believe, helped my children to see the bigger picture of the abuser and of themselves, and the tough issues of growing up and what to do with the negative moments. I also ordered a copy of the book for my 24 year old son, who feels like he is not worthy enough for a decent job, and he is really struggling right now with his rite of passage into adulthood. I spoke with a friend of mine, an adult child of an alcoholic. I really think this will help her with her parents, too. It's just got something for everybody, because we all grew up with things that shaped us in harsh ways, and many of us are stuck in jobs we don't like. Very freeing. We read the whole book in two sittings (two days). We loved it!! Get this book and budget so you can send two copies to those you love.

When I first started reading, I didn't realize Brendon had written a novel. I had already read Millionaire Messenger, and I wanted something more. I had intended on looking at The Charge, but came across this one first and started reading...

At first, I was confused. the story jumped right in. I suddenly had a disconnect and didn't know who I was reading about. I was pretty sure it wasn't Brendon. Once I realized it was a novel, my thought was, oh, no, this is going to suck. Why is he writing fiction? The only one thing that prevented me from not buying the book was that in just the few paragraphs I had read, I was already hooked and wanting to know, "what happens next?"

From there, I was so hooked, I read the first half of the book live on screen (I was too engrossed to even stop, go upstairs and grab my e-reader.)

So what's so great about this book?

Brendan takes you on a journey where you are intensely engrossed in following the story, yet it doesn't take long before you are weaving your own story between the lines. Along with the characters, you begin to review your past and the themes that have shaped it. You begin to see where you went wrong as well as where you went right. Better still, you are not taught lessons or insights, instead, you LIVE them through the characters of the story. You are not asked to write in your journal. You're not asked to do exercises. You're not asked to "take time to contemplate this." You simply read a story. Just reading the story, you get all you need.

Recently I had read the Afterlife of Billy Fingers. Billy talks about a life review and how you not only have access to what you experienced in your life, but also what those around you experienced as well.

I think this a book everyone should read. Not necessarily because I think it's life changing, not because I'm promoting the author (whom I have never met and never heard of) and not because I fawn over every book of this type (i.e. The Secret - which I will probably never read). I recommend this work of fiction - it's important to remember I'm only reviewing a piece of fiction here - because it's an entertaining, creative story with a great message attached to it. I think Burchard is correct in assuming most people get caught up in their lives and pasts and selfishness and forget to live life as it should be lived. I think it's important there are people out there who will step forward and say, "Quit being so selfish. Do more for others." I know nothing of his spamming and if it's true he does so, it's a shame. I agree nothing should be promoted in this way. But again, this is a book review and in my opinion it's a wonderful read. It'll make you think and reflect upon yourself and those around you, which is an activity all of us should be doing everyday. Pick up the book. Read it. (If you're upset about the spamming pick it up at the library. Then, no guilt for purchasing the book.) I promise you'll enjoy it.

For those who have realized that forgiveness and honest, rigorous introspection are critical for a fulfilling, meaningful life this book may not be inspiring or revelatory. However, for those who feel stuck, cheated, or resentful this book may be inspiring and revealing.

Regardless, it's an easy, pleasant read.

For those of you who know Brendon Burchard as an awesome trainer and non-fiction author in the field of personal development and marketing, this book will delight and surprise you. "Life's Golden Ticket" is a work of fiction centered around a protagonist whose life has gone awry. Through well crafted and compelling story-telling, he learns a major lesson, as do we, the readers: that no matter who or where you are in your life, there is always a second chance. It's up to us to grab it and make our lives meaningful and rich with love and kindness. A big thumbs up for a great read with a strong take-away message.
