"If you are happy to read lots of stories about people finding their inspiration, get this book. If you are looking to be pointed toward finding your own inspiration, don't bother."
What I like is that he doesn't try to point you, because he couldn't know who the reader is and thusly where to point them. His point in the book is that every person is different and is good at something, and by pursuing what we love doing we have the greatest chance of living a life of personal meaning and happiness.
Sure, there are lots and lots of quite short 'example stories' in the book - but they are all true stories. He's no Hemingway of a writer, but he is an inspirational person and his points remain valid in written form. What you should take away from this book is that you need to do some soul-searching within yourself to find what you are good at and perhaps always wanted to do, but either never got round to it or you just never did it for whatever reason.
It's not too late either, as he says in the book: "Benjamin Franklin invented the bifocal lens when he was 87".
