"Ho hum," I thought, "another book telling me how to live my life." To be honest I didn't want to read ONE MORE BOOK telling me about purpose, success, and--whatever.
Oh, I'm so glad I read it. And, no, I didn't do a quick scan. I read every page-- sometimes more than once.
I couldn't put it down. Amicus 101: A Story About the Pursuit of Purpose and Overcoming Life's Chaos is entertaining, informative, brilliantly written, and powerful. It should be read by--well, by everyone.
It reads like a novel and teaches like an enlightened master who only has your personal highest good in mind. It is a teacher with an unplumbed depth of wisdom. Whether you belong to a religious group, consider yourself spiritual, proclaim to have no faith, this book will instill hope and give you direction without trampling on your beliefs. if you breathe, long for, have fear of, procrastinate, feel alone, get confused or simply want to learn more about living a fulfilled, purposeful life, this book can speak to your pain and needs.
The hero of the story, Jay Garfield, is asked to ponder 21 questions beginning with "What would you like to do in your life?" and ending with "What inner qualities would you like the world to see in you?" You get to be witness to Jay's work and do you own work along with him. The questions are practical, where the rubber meets the road kind of questions that brings about profound outcomes.
If you don't know what you want to do with your life, read this book. If you need inspiration or a kick in the butt, read this book. If you feel that there's more in life than what you've experienced so far and don't know where to look, this book might give you some direction. If you just need a little push or a hand to lift you out of a rut, this is the book to read.
It is magical, inspirational, practical, and motivating. My only regret? That I didn't have this book years ago.
You can also find it as "A Better Life: An Inspiring Story About Starting Over." Whichever title you buy, this book is definitely worth the price.
