One last weekend post... review of What Should I Do With My Life?
Today I finished a book I've been reading over the last week or so. It's titled What Should I Do With My Life by Po Bronson. Po Bronson is the author of a couple of other books, such as Nudist On The Night Shift. In this book, he looks at the age-old question that people struggle with; specifically, what should one do with his/her life? Unlike other "self-help" books, this one doesn't attempt to come up with a formula to follow to discover your life's calling. It's more of an exploration of the question both in his own life and in the lives of hundreds of people he's interviewed. You hear their stories, and you realize there are no pat answers or systematic formulas, nor is there a single way to approach the answers to this question.
This book can have a couple of effects on a reader. It might be a comfort to know that others struggle with the deep questions of life and that they are not alone. It can also be a bit unsettling to know that there ARE no guarantees or answers that someone else can give you. These are things you have to figure out for yourself.
A recommended read if you are going through the questioning process in your life...
