My Thoughts

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I think it was written in a very easy to read way. Some chapters I enjoyed more than others simply because of my life experience with different jobs. There were many things, including the side stories of real people, that just gave me a new perspective. We get in this bubble in life and in our work and fail to realize the bigger pictures. It was encouraging to read about people who had to do a 180 in their life and accomplished much. 
I thought this was a great book and aside from a few slower chapters (personal preference) I enjoyed it!
Fours stars.
