Agree with both the comments below. It is a lot of words, with personal examples, research and snipets from other authors to drive home the main points. Overall it is an excellent book and provides great fodder to help one find their life purpose and to determine if it's authentic and whether to say yes, no or not now to following that calling.
Highly recommend at least a perusal and if it resonates with you BUY a copy to read over and over and take notes in it!

I put the age suitability at 21+ simply because until someone has some life experiences and exploring of career/calling/purpose, I think this book would be too much to digest. I read it in middle age (48 years old) while going through a major life transition and it's perfect for me.

Too many words ... I could not go on after reading a couple dozen pages.
I found what I was looking for in "Let your life speak" by Parker Palmer, also available at EPL.
