What Should I Do with My Life?: The True Story of People Who Answered the Ultimate Question Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In What Should I Do with My Life? Po Bronson tells the inspirational true stories of people who have found the most meaningful answers to that great question. With humor, empathy, and insight, Bronson writes of remarkable individuals--from young to old, from those just starting out to those in a second career--who have overcome fear and confusion to find a larger truth about their lives and, in doing so, have been transformed by the experience. What Should I Do with My Life? struck a powerful, resonant chord on publication, causing a multitude of people to rethink their vocations and priorities and start on the path to finding their true place in the world. For this edition, Bronson has added nine new profiles, to further reflect the range and diversity of those who broke away from the chorus to learn the sound of their own voice.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Everyone is called to do something, and this book has such a positive message about people finding who there are and where they are going. I loved the many perspectives this book presents, showing that each persons path is unique to them. I wanted to pass this book on to friends and family, because it made me feel so positive about having a career, and doing what you love. It doesn't seem to matter what it is, the most important thing is that it is what you enjoy and are supposed to be doing
