I don't tend to read a lot of personal development books, but I've (somewhat sceptically) started to read a few recently. This is the first such book that hasn't left me feeling even more frustrated after reading it.
I'm at the point where I keep saying to myself, "I can't keep doing this for much longer, I need to do something different with my life", but while I'm clear about what I don't want, I've been really struggling to figure out what it is I DO want. The motivational / personal growth / self-help books I've read prior to this tended to assume I knew what I wanted already , and I just needed some encouragement or techniques to progress me towards my goals. This book fills the gap, helping you figure out what it is you want in the first place.
I really appreciated the way the book details a large variety of approaches/techniques to help you figure out what you want. If one isn't working for you, just move on and try another. And another, and another. By the end of the book you've approached the question of 'what do I want?' from so many angles that it gives you a very robust answer.
The analogy of the polar bear really struck a cord with me, I'd been wondering why there was a bear on the cover of the book, and it was worth the wait. I won't spoil the surprise, I recommend you buy the book and find out for yourself.
