This is a great book for a young person trying to figure out what to do with their life. I like Nightingale's idea of how there are two different types of people -- river people and goal people. I believe there is a lot of truth in this book. ...more

“They do not know that by thinking in new directions (which has been called the definition of genius) they can bring new directions into their lives. Most of them are marking time, as if they have a non-cancelable contract with life. How can we rise above our more egregious mistakes if we just mark time! Let's do it better than it's been done before. Let's find our partner in the freest, richest land on earth and do something wonderful with this holiday we've been mysteriously granted.” 0 likes
