This review is from: What Should I Do With My Life? (Paperback)
I found this book a compelling and inspirational read. Through the 60-odd stories presented, Bronson explores the messy minefield of questions and issues faced in today's world of infinite choice. It was like talking to a group of people who are facing or have faced the same issues and doubts that myself and many friends are going through. I could identify with many of the stories, and found comfort in the fact that I am not the only one struggling with these issues.
From walking away from money (and the concept of money as a benchmark for success), to the importance of leading a balanced life, the questions of ethics, location, the "grass is greener" mentality and the fear that you don't belong.
What was most refreshing of all was the fact that he does not attempt to paint a rosy glow over the stories. Some people took great risks which paid off, others ended disastrously, but what is most striking is the fact that the people who are most satisfied are those doing something which is meaningful to them, and that in many cases the journey is just as important as the destination.
I empathised with many of the characters in the book and would welcome a sequel in 5 or 10 years time to find out how they're all getting on!!
A must read for anyone asking themselves this question!
