"For years I struggled to work out what I really wanted. I somehow knew if I could work it out, it would make a big difference to my life. Then I began to notice I could divide my clients, friends and colleagues into two groups:
1. Those who knew want they wanted but did not know how to get it.
2. Those who did not know what they wanted.
I wrote this book for the second group. The people who have that persistent feeling their life would be better if only they could work out what they really wanted."
