This book took me a very long time to finish, but I read it intermittently and really took the time to savor it. It is a very dense book with so many wise quotes, lessons and a very comprehensive overview of choosing a career and then finding a way to make it happen. The author approaches the career process the way an artist sees a blank canvas. He encourages us to approach the process with reverence and to honor our best self. He encourages us to think about more than money and success--he wants us to include our soul in the process. But at the same time the book is very, very practical. I guess the reason it is almost 600 pages is because he always us to think big and creatively and then encourages us to delve into the minutia and do the work. I highly recommend this book and encourage you to skim or skip sections that do not feel relevant to you. It is worth the time.
