From Publishers Weekly
John Dossett's crisp and polished delivery is a natural fit for Johnson's no-nonsense style of motivational storytelling. Dossett chooses to understate the pathos, projecting a tone of wistful contemplation instead of heavy drama. Both the story and the narrative within the story surround dialogue between a weary day-to-day corporate warrior and a seasoned sage who offers a broader perspective on our familiar notions of success, achievement and happiness. In light of the current economic climate, listeners will find the messages timely, even if the paradigm shifts may not seem especially original. As an added bonus, the audio book includes an interview with the author sharing how he strives to keep the public focused on his message instead of elevating him into a celebrity business guru. A Simon and Schuster hardcover. (Mar.)

Life is not to be taken seriously.
Our surroundings are ever changing.
Human nature is more pliable than you think.
Have dreams, or not have dreams. We can be happy either way.
I struggle daily to balance caring for my 2 sons, one who is autistic, and working. Let alone "keeping house." This book gave me a great sense of relief in that I am not alone. Everyone faces these ups and downs. I love the stratgies given for getting out of the ruts and sustaining the highs.
principals fit in well. A few changes here a few personal insights there. I like the fact that he learns retrospectively based on his
life long journey. And his choice of living in the mountains as a source of enligfhtenment is cerebral in its grace. recommend the
book to all especially those familiar with his legacy.
