I picked up Mark Samuel's book after reading about it as part of the Mentorbox list of must reads.

I thought this book was very helpful! I felt it put some things in my past in perspective in a way that allows me to focus on making changes in the future. The exercises were very useful for reflecting on my past choices, past mistakes, current goals, and current successes. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to get their life back on track, and also their significant others. I feel that the positive influence this book has had on me has helped me professionally, as well as personally. ...more
