'Wellth: How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Resume' by mindbodygreen founder Jason Wachob is a self-help book.
The author talks about his life and how he came to make life choices. He talks about how wealth isn't nearly as important as well-being. The reader is encouraged to build a healthy life that includes gratitude and mindfulness.
I've read a number of these type of books. This one feels a lot more autobiographical than others. I learned that the author was an athlete and had a good paying job on Wall Street. The book feels like it's telling more than showing. While it's important to know how the author came to have this viewpoint, there was just too much backstory to most things. Also, while this advice seems good, I felt like I was being shown the magic formula. This may be the author's magic formula, but it's not everyones.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Crown Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
