This book is a good springboard for getting you to reflect on what you value in your life and where you want to take your life. It can give you an idea of how to refocus your goals, and will hopefully motivate to make some changes. It is intended for the adult who already has an established financial life, but can be used to give young adults an idea of a possible 'big picture' as well.
Full of practical advice, broken down into manageable steps. Clearly written with accessible client examples. If you're willing to put in the work (and this book tells you quite frankly that this is work), this seems like a very useful guide.
