This is one of the few self-help books, not necessarily religious, that I enjoyed. The whole concept has to do with building up one’s spiritual ‘PR’ campaign (I define PR as positive reimaging), knowing that at the end of life, people will be sharing about us in our future eulogies. How do we want ourselves to be remembered by? Of course we wouldn’t want the sharing to be shallow or superficial, but rather substantial and with basis. Hopefully, by then, we would have made our impact and will leave this world a better place.
Even if the motivation sounds a little narcissistic, the book actually dealt with the heart of the matter. Life is what we make it - and if our lives are supposed to make a statement, we need to start defining it now. The book included some workshops to help navigate the process of reverse engineering our lives, regardless of one’s starting point.
This is a life long process, and at some future point, I may share with you some updates, as comments to this review. Hopefully it will be comments from other people, and not myself!
I was given a review copy by the publisher through NetGalley.
