This book offered me a framework of self examination and contemplation of the forces around which I frame my life. I enjoyed his open look at the influences he responded to throughout his more conventional years, and the introspection he endured while questioning his own decision. The references to money are a bit shallow, since the money allowed him to take the time off in the first place. But the "I Have A Choice" paragraph remains posted on the wall next to my desk. I have recommended this book to any who would listen.
