Product description

Review

"Inspirational... This book fascinates because of the broad spectrum of testimonies" (Financial Times)

"Something more than the usual self-help guff. What Should I Do with My Life? is closer to the oral histories of Studs Terkel or This American Life than to Tony Robbins" (Time)

"The 'ultimate question' is a topic always in season, worthy of Bronson's skillful probing and careful anecdote selection. Brimming with stories of sacrifice, courage, commitment and, sometimes, failure, the book will support anyone pondering a major life choice or risk without force-feeding them pat solutions" (Publishers Weekly)

"A remarkable social document, raised to the level of literature by Bronson's own deep level of involvement, his candour and compassion-as a work of research, the book is wide-ranging and impressive" (Evening Standard)

"A superior self-help book... Very readable" (Guardian)

Synopsis

Po Bronson tackles the biggest, most threatening, most obvious question that anyone has to face, 'what should I do with my life?' It is a problem that is increasingly encountered not just by the young but by people who have half their lives or more behind them. The modern route to self-discovery is to trade what you have for a completely different way of life, to face the challenges and finally confront our real aims and desires. Bronson's book is a fascinating account of finding and following people who have uprooted their lives and fought with these questions in radical ways. From the investment banker who gave it all up to become a catfish farmer in Mississippi, to the chemical engineer from Walthamstow who decided to become a lawyer in his sixties; these stories of individual dilemma and drama - and sometimes unsuccessful gambles are bound up with Bronson's account of his own search for a calling.
