There are, conservatively, 300 gazillion books published every year. No one has the time to list them, let alone read them or review them. That’s a problem because there’s a lot of value in many books you may not hear about because of the clutter.
“Short Takes” is my humble effort to cut through the clutter and highlight business books that might be perfect for your next read.
The Path to a Meaningful Life contains 50 of what Frank calls, “life lessons.” I would call them essays. You can call them meditations or reflections. It doesn’t matter what you call them, they’re worth reading.
If you’ve got children or grandchildren, this is a great book for you and for them. Its core advice is for you to “live the way you want to be remembered.” Frank’s 50 essays will help you figure out what that means for you.
Read the introduction, then read the essays that look interesting. Pick up the book from time to time, read an essay, then take time to figure out what it means for you. There’s a lot of value here, but you have to do the work of reading and reflection.
