I can't recommend it enough. It was a very quick read and divided up into six themes: marriage, careers, raising children, aging, avoiding regret, and securing happiness/enduring hardship. You can read the themes in any order or just go cover to cover. I bought the book because I read about it in this article on Cornell's website.
The section on raising children really spoke to me - it was the last straw before I up and left my job altogether. The book also challenged me to get out and go more - to travel more. Before I would partially look at travel as a chore (especially with a toddler) - but now I see it as a huge life opportunity and one I should embark on as often as I can. Hence, our four city Europe tour that begins this week.... wow, that one's gonna be nuts!
Anyway, I'll let the article and the book jacket speak for itself. I'm also happy to lend this to anyone who has Kindle - just let me know.
And now a quick funny Anna story. Earlier today I was upstairs dealing with Verizon, trying to turn on global data on my phone for the trip. I heard some banging downstairs. After my call, I went down to check on Anna. She clearly had wanted a snack so she went into the cupboard and helped herself to some cereal... ALL the cereal:
When I found her and her snack - she told me to "go back upstairs". Always my little independent girl. Okay then! Time to type out this quick blog post. I better get back down though because I hear some more strange noises.
