The life-transforming New York Times bestseller.
Can a simple test change a person’s life? Through their New York Times bestseller The Passion Test, Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood have inspired thousands to shape their lives by discovering their passions and living according to what matters most to them. Readers can identify their top five passions by taking the Test, and then learn exactly how to align their lives with their priorities by following the Attwoods’ easy-to-follow step-by-step program of action.
Combining powerful storytelling and profound wisdom from models of passionate living such as Jack Canfield, Richard Paul Evans, and Stephen M.R. Covey, as well as drawing on their own personal experiences, the Attwoods show how living a full and impassioned life is not only possible, it’s inevitableâ for anyone willing to take the Test.

The authors have been active in the self-help world for some time and have peddled all sorts of pap, anything to make a buck. They are part of a group that promotes each others' products through cross marketing and reviewing each others' products, so I'd take the raves for this book with a large grain of salt.
One thing is clear: The author's passion is marketing pap to the pseudo-spiritual seekers. Save your money.
The rest of the book consists of more or less irrelevant stories of one of the authors travels to India where she meets with "saints".
Also, a portion of the book is dedicated to telling you about how utterly important it is that you consult with a fortuneteller (the authors of course have a friend who will help you with this, if you're willing to part with some cash) before starting anything important in life. The book is filled with crap like this, as well as with books and product recommendations of all of their friends (the last part of the book is basically a catalogue of all of the products that their friends are offering).
I feel cheated buying this book as it had very very little content of interest or use, and instead mainly consisted of self and others promotions, as well as a lot of superstitious crap. Want to return the (kindle) book, but seems like it's too late, as I can't find any "return" button when I check my purchases page.
If you are truly tired of not knowing why you are on this earth or going into a depression because you feel there is "more to life than this" and will also commit to stopping and mindfully completing each of the five or six exercises, you will likely know 1) your major passions, 2) what a successful life will entail when you're living those passions, 3) what you want to have accomplished by the end of your life, and 4) the steps to create an action plan for achieving this life you can now envision.
Thanks to The Passion Test, I now have all of these details in a notebook that I carry with me every day. I also created a business plan and a calendar plan in order to live a life of passion in 2018. I look at the calendar daily and it just has ONE thing that I have to do that day to complete my mission to live a life full of my purpose.
If you read the book from a passive position, then, no, I do not think it will help you as much as it could. However, if you are committed to really learning why you are here and what's been inside of you (I believe from birth), then you will be armed with what you need in order to step onto your right path. I should add that I really didn't learn anything NEW about myself, but I was able to identify what's unique about me and see how important these five passions truly are to my happiness quotient. This has made all the difference in my world in just three short months. I recently launched a Youtube channel called “God Moments” that allows me to interview people who have had intimate encounters with God (this alone allows me to combine four of my five identified passions and fills me with purpose, joy, happiness, excitement, etc.) Just taking the steps to launching the channel filled me with joy I haven't had before. I hope that everyone reading this review buys the book and discovers why you are here. Best of everything to you!
