I love personal development books. I've read many in my lifetime from many different types of authors. The ones that I find most rewarding are the one that are by actual business people. While it is nice to hear a psychology or a philosopher's thoughts on what it takes to have a successful life and career, it can be much more interesting to read about an author who has all the success, some how looses the success and then end the end they end up gain in sight about their success, which is the greatest gift of all.
This book was a fun, insightful read. I definitely filled the pages with my own notes and thoughts as certain passages related to my own life.
This book is written very smartly. I especially enjoyed the quotes incorporated throughout the passages. They really added to the flow and readability of the book.
If you're looking for a little inspiration in a summer read, "Thrive" by Ariana Huffington would be an excellent choice.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review from Blogging for Books.
