Many things I read from the Harvard Business School are quite relevant and I’m rarely disappointed. This book is no exception with examples and exercises that apply to a variety of things, whether it’s finding value in accomplishments like raising a family or in switching careers (or advancing in one’s present career). Unlike many motivational books, the approach is more psychological and uses the tools of a psychologist to help the reader work things out for themselves in a satisfying fashion. The exercises are quite good and give the reader a little more to work with the Myers-Briggs or Gallup’s Strengths Finder. I had hoped for a little more in the way of exploring careers based on the exercises, but the exercises themselves are very valuable.
