Synopsis and Review:
In The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion, the author Elle Luna tries to show readers that there is a fine line between should and must. Inspired by her own successful online article about a similar topic, this book aims to expand the idea such that readers can learn more discovering our calling and doing the thing that we are destined to.
I have read my fair share of self-help books but none of those books is written in this format. Most of them talk about some basic and simple issues such as making friends or gaining confidence, most of which we already know a thing or two about. Moreover, some of the advices in the books are not explicit enough, for example, we should gain more confidence by thinking positively, which is kind of vague. However, I found that the suggestions and guides listed in the books are really useful, and very solid. They are important and valuable enough that readers will find themselves wanting to keep this book close.
Moreover, what really attracts me about The Crossroads of Should and Must is the use of imagery throughout the book. The colors really pop out and make the book a whole lot more interesting. It makes the guide more visually appealing and in general, more stimulating. As people might figure, self-help books can get quite boring. It is just like an invitation for readers to personalize this book such that they will feel more connected to it as their own personal log book instead of a distant guide written by Elle Luna.
I have learned more than I expected to and I am certain every one of you, no matter which stage of life you are at, will take something away from the book. While someone who will soon face the real world, or is already working, will gain more from the book, it is never too soon to start following Elle Luna’s advice.
