Po Bronson writes in a clunky, Journalism 101 style, with wooden introductions of his subjects fumbled into the text. He digresses often, judges his subjects too harshly for my tastes, and generally spends more time holding forth on his own ideas than he does relaying the opinions and experiences of the people he interviews. Once or twice, while I read t The good thing about this book is its sustained focus on an extremely important topic. The bad thing about this book is nearly everything else. I remember the first time I saw a book titled "What Should I Do With My Life?" in a store and thought to myself, "What kind of ass thinks he can answer that question in a book?" Based on that cover-based judgment, I left it on the shelf, and didn't give it another thought until, months later, a friend recommended it to me.

Author Po Bronson was asking himself that very question when he decided to write this book-an inspiring exploration of how people transform their lives and a template for how we can answer this question for ourselves. Finally, with the publication of WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH MY LIFE?, a dialogue that you began will start being discussed in a larger arena. Where do you hope that this conversation will go? People don’t have to agree with me; I hope that, by either fostering agreement or provoking disagreement, it helps people find their story.
Book Description Po Bronson tackles the biggest, most threatening, most obvious question that anyone has to face, ‘what should I do with my life?’ It is a problem that is increasingly encountered not just by the young but by people who have half their lives or more behind them.
A life with purpose will beckon all of us at some point to answer these questions. I find it funny and sad at the massive number of people who are looking for answers to this question. The question seems to strike a chord with those from every walk of life, every background, every culture, and every corner of the world.
