Hi everybody! I’m here to add a quick review of Jason Wachob’s book Wellth: How I learned to Build a Life, not a Resume. I received the book from bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review.
This was a very quick read, and I don’t mean it in a bad way. I started and finished the book in just over an hour. Having read 20+ self-help/self-improvement books in the last few months, I found this one to be a quick guide to all of the topics covered by those.
The book is broken up into 13 chapters, each about a different aspect of self-improvement:
If you want to read just one self-improvement book, this would be a good one to pick up because it covers such a diverse set of topics. So many books are focused on one or two of these, and it was nice to have something with a little bit of everything. I read through it feeling like I’d heard some of this advice before, so if you’ve read tons in this genre, you can pass on this one.
I found the personal anecdotes tied in well, unlike other books where they feel forced. I’ve never heard of Jason Wachob’s site, mindbodygreen, but I may give it a look in the near future because I enjoyed the casual writing style of the book. The quotes sprinkled throughout each chapter also fit very well.
All in all, it’s definitely worth a read for a one-stop shop of self-improvement topics. If you want something more or more depth in any of the thirteen categories above, I’d pick something else up.
