A few years ago, as I was floundering in the midst of a career change, one of my friends recommended it. This book is an easy read, but powerful. I immediately went out and bought copies for my two (then)
teenaged sons and left them on their beds. I won't spoil the story, which you can read in an hour or two, but the hero sets out to find what he calls his "personal legend." Things don't always go according to his plan and that's what makes the story so great. There is learning in each experience.
This book will have you reflecting about what things mean, pulling the lessons out of what happens in your life. To this day I remind my sons of the story as they seek out their own personal legends.
