What Should I Do with My Life?: The True Story of People Who Answered the Ultimate Question

By Po Bronson
In "What Should I Do with My Life"? Po Bronson tells the inspirational true stories of people who have found the most meaningful answers to that great question. With humor, empathy, and insight, Bronson writes of remarkable individuals from young to old, from those just starting out to those in a second career who have overcome fear and confusion to find a larger truth about their lives and, in doing so, have been transformed by the experience. "What Should I Do with My Life?" struck a powerful, resonant chord on publication, causing a multitude of people to rethink their vocations and priorities and start on the path to finding their true place in the world. For this edition, Bronson has added nine new profiles, to further reflect the range and diversity of those who broke away from the chorus to learn the sound of their own voice.

Every month, Penguin/Portfolio posts a new free podcast that you can download from iTunes or listen to on their site called The Business Beat. It was exciting news to hear that The Business Beat was featured in USA TODAY’s “Watch, Listen and Read” column today--it’s on 6B of the Money section, if you have a paper copy on hand--, not only because we love the work that Portfolio does with its business books, but because at the end of every program, Jack reviews a classic business book in his Just Jack! section.

NEWS & OPINION: Day jobs

Posted April 22, 2010, 5:10 PM with category of Management & Workplace Culture
I've been thinking a lot today about "day jobs" and what that concept means to people. For some, it's what they do, it's what they're good at, and for lack of a better term, it's their lives. For others, it's something they use, to pay the bills while they wait for something better to come along, or to fund projects they're working on outside of work, that don't make enough money to survive on.
