What makes someone leave home at the age of 16 to move to another country all by himself?
What drives a person pursue a professional kitesurfing career even though there is no sea where he is from?

Julian, the author of the book, was asked these and many more questions throughout his entire life. Many of the answers did not make any sense at the time when he took the decision but make absolute sense looking backwards.
The beautiful part of these stories he has around his answers is that anyone can not only relate to them, but moreover draw important conclusions for his or her own life. Julian's thought processes are not rocket science. At the end, there are no good or bad decisions in life - only decisions that you make or don't make. Sometimes you just need a little bit of reassurance that you are on the right track, and this book will give you that.
Usually self-help books, which this book is for me, are very abstract and repeating the same old stuff with different adjectives. This one, however, brings the learning points with personal stories in quick and dirty style. if you have internalized the all-time most popular self development books, then the gist you know already. but the story is worth of buying the book. if you haven't read the above-mentioned books, then skip them and get this one. This one delivers the same message in much more pleasant and faster way. Kudos to author!
