What Should I Do with My Life?, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Po Bronson tackles the biggest, most threatening, most obvious question that anyone has to face, 'what should I do with my life?' Bronson's book is a fascinating account of finding and following the people who have taken the ultimate challenge of self-discovery by uprooting their lives and starting all over again.

From the investment banker who gave it all up to become a catfish farmer in Mississippi, to the chemical engineer from Walthamstow who decided to become a lawyer in his sixties.

These stories of individual dilemmas and dramatic - sometimes unsuccessful - gambles are bound up with Bronson's account of his own search for a calling.

One of my favourite books at the moment - a thought-provoking piece of qualitative research, in which Bronson reports on interviews with a number of people about the way in which they've tried to answer this question in thier lives, and synthesises the conclusions he's drawn from these interviews in ways that are both reassuring and challenging.
