The book helps you to define what this work is for you, helps you to identify and undo the conditioning that gets in your way and guides you towards finding work that will be meaningful and will enable you to earn a living.
This book is written from the heart so if you are looking for inspiration to help you take action on your career change, I can think of no better place to start.
I'm a bit weary of self help books where the author has dealt with adversity by writing a book/creating a business advising others on dealing with that adversity. I know there can be a "wounded healer" aspect to this, a desire to help others through a similar challenge. There can also sometimes be a feeling of opportunism about it. If this book had been more original in its content I might have got a different impression of it.
If you aren't already familiar with the principles from other sources, then I suppose this could be a helpful book. I prefer "What Color is Your Parachute" as encouraging new ways of looking at yourself and your working life while feeling (to me) more heartfelt, thorough and down to earth.
