Summary: Have you wondered where your life is headed? You worked hard and invested your most productive years hoping to reach your potential or a particular goal. But your life seems to be going nowhere. The years pass by, and you leave behind lots of unfinished goals and unfulfilled dreams. Some who are younger have already begun to see doors close right in front of you. You had clear goals for your life, but after several missed opportunities and failures, you are doubtful about ever reaching your goals. You were taught that if you worked hard and gave it your all, you'll accomplish much. But for you, that just does not seem to be the reality. This book is for those who worked hard to reach your potential, but life has disappointed you. You look back and wonder if it was all worth the effort. Then you look forward and contemplate about the future and wonder if more disappointments are up ahead. Together we'll look at how you can live your potential.

There is some interesting information in this book, but I expected more talk on "how" instead of just talking about it.  Also, some of his opinions - because that's exactly what they are - just didn't sit right with me i.e. his spiel about people who are trying to find themselves possibly finding out that once they pull away all these layers of things people expect them to be, they'll find out they have no substance without them.  I did really enjoy the "conclusion," though.
