The information contained in this book is VERY, VERY basic and can be found, free of charge, on most career sites. While the general principles of the book are intriguing, I was disappointed by the lack of depth or tips for practical application. This is nothing other than an advertisement to go to his web site and purchase additional materials, whose content I would have expected to be covered in the book. Save your money - don't buy it. I was completely disappointed.

This book essentially turned out to be a hardcover advertisement to buy more of the author's material in order to 'really discover the work you love.' It eluded to proving helpful for a moment with discovering more about ones potential vocation, but then gave YET ANOTHER reference to his website where you could purchase the information for another $37.50. The minor amount of basic material is the same as can be found on most any career counseling website, but with constant advertisements for the author's other 7 streams of income along with gratuitous religious references to fill up space as well as repetition of the same information and quotes....it quickly becomes beyond annoying. I do not often rate books negatively however, save your money with this fluff. I recommend that you peruse it in the book store first and you will quickly find that it is a waste of time, money and effort.

This book does not work well on the nook. I had a lot of problems with it. Also, this is not a book to help you figure out what work you love to do.

This is a good book for people who are searching for their 'calling' or someone who is happy with what they are doing. It gives its reader a good perspective on everything from career to family.

Wow, what a profound book. Everyone should read this before even thinking about a career. No wonder I keep reading about Dan Miller and 48 Days everywhere. I heard he was scheduled for The Today Show. Great news, as everyone needs to read this foundational perspective on what work can and should be, in regards to a fulfilling life. I only have to believe that the bad review by 'Jason' below was because he has something against Mr. Miller's religious references. But they are intererpersed with tons of other quotations too. And as for 'trying to sell his other products,' I found far less of that in this book than most any other business/work/career book on the market. I'll assume the guy just hates his work and needs to vent...

This book made me realize that you must do research and dedicate time to your job search. More importantly you have to do some serious soul searching and stop procrastinating. It's because of this book that I started doing volunteer work.

There are so many books on money, success, etc...but nothing that addresses what 'work' is supposed to be, and gives guidance to making your work your passion. This book blew me away with Dan's revelation of truth about what is wrong with work and how to make it right. I think everyone going into the marketplace should read this book first.

For the truest review I guess I'll have to put the plan into action and see if I've gotten results in 48 days. But for now, the book was mostly a positive and inspirational guide to deciding what you want to do and how to go about getting the job you want. I did find some of the statistics Miller sited to be a bit dubious. The essence of the book was simply this: Don't just sit around wishing you were happy with your career. Do something about it.

As a Dave Ramsey fan when I heard him recommend this book a few years ago I bought it and loved it. I have given this book as a gift to the young people I have mentored over the years and it has been beneficial and helped these individuals find their passion
