You may be interested in reading this book if you are suicidal, interested in blowing up an airplane or some such thing. Or if you like books where you wonder if the author will ever get to the point.
Otherwise, I'd recommend "Men's Search for Meaning" by Victor Frankl as a more insightful and interesting book about how much difference having a purpose or finding a meaning for your life can make. (The author of this bookclub selection even cites Frankl!)
And if you want to read in depth about what your real purpose in life is, read "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren.
I was hoping that this book may be a good complement to the two books I've mentioned above, but have been disappointed.
Hi! I am a new member. I just read Part 5 of 5 of Soul Passion. For years, I have been complaining to friends, that my life (though busy), seemed meaningless. Work, shopping, etc. It was just not enough. I am going to read this book, because I can relate to the "emptiness" of chasing unimportant, ineffectual dreams. I want more out of my life, a sense of fulfillment, a sense of true accomplishment. I think this book may be able to help. I also like the way the author writes.
