What should I do with my life?

It's a question many of us have wondered with frequency. Author Po Bronson was asking himself that very question when he decided to write this book - an inspiring exploration of how people transform their lives and a template for how we can answer this question for ourselves.

Po traveled the country in search of individuals who have struggled to find their calling, their true nature. People who made mistakes before getting it right. People of all ages and all professions -- fascinating individuals trying to answer questions such as: Is a career supposed to feel like a destiny? How do I tell the difference between a curiosity and a passion? Should I make money first, to fund my dream? If I have a child, will my frustration over my work go away? Should I accept my lot, make peace with my ambition, and stop stressing out? Why do I feel guilty for thinking about this?

This audiobook is like listening in on an intimate conversation among people you care about and admire. There is wisdom and guidance in these stories of people who found meaningful answers by daring to be honest with themselves.

"We all have passions if we choose to see them," Bronson writes. "Most of us don't get epiphanies. We don't get clarity. Our purpose doesn't arrive neatly packaged as destiny. We only get a whisper. A blank, non-specific urge. That's how it starts."

With humor, empathy, and insight, Po Bronson probes the depths of people who learned how to hear the whisper, who overcame fear and confusion to find a larger truth about their lives. A meditation, a journey, and a triumph of storytelling, What Should I Do With My Life? is a life-changing audiobook.

    " You must read this book (or listen to the audiobook as I did). But, beware. The title is not "This is what you should do with your life", as it would be easy to falsely interpret. This won't give you any answers, but it will give you a greater appreciation for the question and broaden your horizons as to the possible answers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Daniel Milstein | 1/7/2014

    " The book is the stories of about fifty career-changers. You won't find plans or guidance for your own career move. Just other people's adventures to learn from their experience. Bronson came up with some sound insights into career change. He observed that people avoid change because of the accompanying loss of identity. It's a great non self-help book and it's nice to read. "

    " stories of people asking this question. this book doesn't provide easy answers, but it does make you feel better about asking the questions in the first place. "

    " A lot of people snicker at the title, but apart from non-encouraging reactions it's a good read. For people who know the direction they're headed it's inspiring, don't expect motivational. Those who are tackling this question-of-a-lifetime - it won't and can't give you an answer. It just tells you the paths others have taken. "
