Publisher Comments:

Combining powerful storytelling, a life-transforming program of action, and profound expert wisdom from successful leaders, this book shows readers, step by step, how to identify their top five passions and determine what really matters most to them.

Review:

"Co-founders of the online magazine Healthy Wealhty "n" Wise, husband and wife team Bray and Attwood have produced a self-help guide with a simple test at its core, requiring readers to list and prioritize their goals, wants and desires, weeding and striking until they have just five 'passions' listed; those are then held against one's life to determine how close one is to each (readers are encouraged to retake the test every six months). A full life steeped in passion is achievable, the authors assert, through the application of three concepts: intention, attention and 'no tension.' In part one, these concepts are explored in depth, along with seven steps for 'Living Life Aligned with Passion'; part two puts these ideas into action. Throughout, the text is peppered with anecdotes, theories and analysis from experts and colleagues who have taken the test and put it to use in their lives. There's nothing revolutionary about Bray and Attwood's technique, but it's a simple (if not exactly 'effortless') approach to organizing and prioritizing that's both practical and intuitive."

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.
