Ch. 2 is about helping people who don't know what they want to do with their lives find out what they want to do. He lists 10 questions to help you find the answer. The second is  "What would you like to do?" Questions 3 - 10 are based on the answer to #2. Well, if I knew what I would like to do I WOULD KNOW WHAT I WANT TO DO!!! How incredibly stupid is this?How is this even remotely helpful? That's what I get for buying a 4x6 novelty book written by some idiot that is so full of himself that he writes 5 - 6 self-help books a year.

Medicine shows peddled one bottle cure alls whose main ingredient if you were lucky was a little gin to kill the germs in the swamp water. As freud said the personality was set by six years old one has to work around that. Many would like to be saints or millionaires or great artists this one no doubt wants fame and fortune as a writer too bad should switch to regional and ethnic cook books as thats where the money is if you have really good photos and you dont have to know how to cook just assemble tried and true from others as all receipes are flexible you can say 8 oz or 8 teaspoons or 1 cup
