Short, Pithy, & Life-Changing
Every two or three years a book comes along that changes the way one thinks. This witty but very serious little book was one of those few for me--so much so that I'm not lending my copy.
Bayles and Orland manage convincingly to shatter myths, boost one's confidence, and encourage one to think almost as clearly as these collaborative authors have obviously done. The book is not a challenge to read but it does challenge you to work at what fulfills you--not with starry-eyed "follow-your-dream" nonsense but with clear and convincing arguments.
I would recommend this small, thoughtful book to anyone who writes, paints, sculpts, draws, builds furniture, designs, sits and thinks, or simply likes a "good read."
