He does it again! - An amazing read that is so incredibly helpful. - I've already put Chris's suggestions into practice and the book has only been out for a week!

Chris Guillebeau's new book, Born For This: How to Find the Work You Were Meant to Do reads more like a conversation than a how-to book. An easy, engaging on how to take a more ...unconventional approach to finding the work the reader is (wait for it) born to do. It's filled with anecdotes on how both Chris himself and other people found fulfilling work that hit the sweet spot between joy and money. It certainly gave me a lot of ideas. It's definitely worth your time, especially if you're hitting a wall at work and want to find a meaningful way out of a job you hate. Full disclosure: I received my ARC of the book as I am on his mailing list, and I was randomly drawn from that list.

Similar to his previous work, like The Happiness of Pursuit (which inspired me to go on my cross-country trip last year), this new book is full of inspiration for the entrepreneurial lifestyle with successful examples. It's not just for online entrepreneurs; Chris offers advice and examples of "hacking one's job" or improving your current career. I liked that, instead of giving the popular advice of finding a niche, this book acknowledges people who have multiple interests. Sometimes the interests have a common thread, like me with genealogy, archives work, and antiquarian bookselling. One takeaway for me was the "side-hack," or creative side job that could either become a future career or just provide near-term financial support. Born for This is great for a secular book about finding meaningful work. I'd love it if Chris could combine his energy and world-traveling insight with somebody spiritually grounded like Rick Warren into writing that provides practical steps with heavenly priorities.

Hands down the clearest book I've read on finding the perfect work for your personality and skills, and I've read a lot of them! Buy it now and save yourself years of wondering, teeth-gnashing, and wasted time. You'll thank me as soon as you read it (and Chris!).
