At last a book that gets to root of the matter - you've got to follow your bliss or you'll forever be a square peg in a round hole. I learned the hard way that trying to be something that you're not will never work. There will always be others who are genuinely made for the job, and will always better than you. And even if you manage to battle on, and make money, you still won't be happy. The only way to be happy in your work is to see those talents that you do have, by looking at the things that you enjoy doing, and use them instead. The money will follow. I only wish that I'd had a book like this twenty years ago. I wish this sort of careers advice was available in schools.

Laurence Boldt has written a really important book. This is a really deep book full of information and inspiration. I read his books again and again, because he is a real hero ahead of his time. This book is written as the culmination of a life's work seeking real knowledge and wisdom. For anyone tired and depressed by the status quo of meaningless materialism, this book is like an oasis in the desert of our spiritual wasteland.
