it was amazing

I am usually not big on so-called “self-help” books but this one drew me in right from the start. The title alone is a huge draw. Millennial Samurai? Sounds awesome! Sign me up. Admittedly, some of the advice in this book is more geared toward a male audience, but even as a women I found those sections interesting. It's safe to say that I took a lot of notes while reading through this.
When I first started reading, I skipped over the “About the Author” section at the beginning of the book (as I usually do) and only went back to read it later. I was surprised to read about all of the accomplishments of the author, George Chanos. The whole time I was curious about whether he was a Millennial, because he seemed to understand our mindset quite a bit while still having a wealth of experience and wisdom that most of us Millennials aren't really old enough for yet. It turns out that he is not, but he is a former Attorney General and a Chief Legal Officer for the state of Nevada. It seems that Chanos has a great deal of experience in working with and mentoring Millennials and that was the motivation behind him writing this book. And I'm glad he did because I learned a lot.
Reading this book is sort of like having an older mentor for those of us who might not have that privilege in life. This book really gave me a different perspective on my life and the lives of those around me. I think it helped me to find a little more meaning and coherence in the world. I guess you can't ask for much more than that from a few hours of reading, can you? I recommend this highly!

George Chanos Thank you for your wonderful review. It meant a lot to me. My hope for Millennial Samurai is that it will enrich, inspire and empower everyone who reads it, but especially your generation - my children’s generation. So, this kind of feedback, especially from a Millennial, really means a lot to me. Thank you for taking the time to read it and to share your thoughts with others. ❤️
