This was more than the usual self-improvement “you can do anything” mantras that are enclose with lots of surrounding prose. Rather than the collected wisdom of the author who has seen a lot of people like us professionally and has had some deep family issues too. None of this drove him into the arms of God nor a one step life summary. Instead, the author gives wise advice and wry observations that would incrementally help anyone. Easy to read and quite profound. Read it.
