My good buddy (and Gentlemint member) Jonathan Fields has released a book that has been climbing the charts, and for good reason. How to Live a Good Life: Soulful Stories, Surprising Science, and Practical Wisdom is great because, well... just listen to the description:
"Seriously . . . another book that tells you how to live a good life? Don’t we have enough of those?
You’d think so. Yet, more people than ever are walking through life disconnected, disengaged, dissatisfied, mired in regret, declining health, and a near maniacal state of gut-wrenching autopilot busyness.
Whatever is out there isn’t getting through. We don’t know who to trust. We don’t know what’s real and what’s fantasy. We don’t know how and where to begin and we don’t want to wade through another minute of advice that gives us hope, then saps our time and leaves us empty."
Defining what a "good life" is is tricky business, and something we all struggle with, and for good reason. Everyone wants to live a life we can be proud of, no matter what slice of society we come from.
Fields can help. He's been studying this stuff for years, and his no-BS approach to sucking the marrow out of life is one that I've admired over the years. Always makes times for his family and friend (even me!), and I couldn't be more proud of him. He's not just some dude out there shilling a product... he's living it.
Personally, Jonathan is a great friend. (Anybody that will give me a bed and put up with me for a few days is practically slated for knighthood.) I've just bought the book, and look forward to diving in.
