An true gem for those seeking to find their way
on May 22, 2008
Simply put, this is a terrific little book for anyone who feels stuck in a rut or who's simply looking to "find their way" in life. Perfect for high school grads, college students or anyone else who feels the need for a little extra direction.
Essentially what this book boils down to is a series of interviews conducted by a couple of twenty something guys on a road trip. Along the way, they make several scheduled stops to chat with successful people in their respective fields-asking questions about how they got their start, how they became successful and what sort of advice they have for young folks seeking direction.
The premise sounds simple and really it is-but along the way, you'll discover a wealth of advice and insight and even more importantly you'll learn to shut out "the noise" and listen to your heart first and foremost. Though this book is targeted primarily at twenty somethings, I read it at age 31 and found it brimming with plenty of insight into my own life and my own path. That was five years ago and the book has stayed with me this whole time. I just ordered two copies as the perfect graduation gifts for a pair of nephews. It's a great companion for a soul searching road trip of one's own.
