The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Destiny by Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood
The Passion Test: The Effortless Path to Discovering Your Destiny

The Passion Test- Score an A+

People like to knock books like these because their ideas are perhaps too simple. My thinking, however, is just the opposite- all the good ideas that really work ARE simple.

To me, the biggest value of this book is that it can really help one get focused on their passions and the things they really want out of life- and few things are more important than that.

Sure you can reduce the book down to its simplest form of "make a list of your passions". But then again, weight loss can be reduced down to "eat less and exercise more" as well. Yes, that's a simple and effective solution, but I doubt most people will be successful with just that simple piece of advice alone. And THAT'S the real value of the book- it provides guidance on how to have a fulfilling life using a very simple idea.

Get this book if you feel like something's not quite right in your life and you need a change of direction- the book will help. If you need further help on setting goals that can lead to happiness, give "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World" a look see. Remember, you can't get what you want until you know WHAT you want. G-luck.
