The author provides very practical and thought provoking information. The exercises make you think through your own experiences and motivation for doing something.
doesnt Do You
This isn't your typical career changer book. It takes you down a much deeper path. Bellman has the reader contemplate Your Self, Your World and Your Path by posing thoughtful questions and exercises. For example, "If you knew you were going to die in six months, what would you do in the interim?" or "Write a love letter to someone you have not expressed your feelings to in a long time." It other words, this book focuses on how we interact with our world, not just our jobs. It also is a lot of hard "mind" work. If you are the introspective sort trying to figure out your place or purpose in life, you will find "Your Signature Path" intellectually refreshing.

We [...] suggest this book to those interested in expanding their perceptions about their personal and professional lives. You walk a path whether you are conscious about it or not, so why not be conscious?

This book is the best guide to focusing your life and work I've found anywhere. This isn't just a guide aimed at people who don't have any idea where to start, this is the "advanced course." It is just as valuable for people who have enjoyed a lot of success in their life as for people who haven't yet found their niche.
In addition to offering a series of different frameworks to help you think about your life and work from a variety of perspectives, Bellman's book provides exercises to help the reader take concepts and apply them to your own life. Unlike many self-help manuals, this one goes beyond superficial "touchy feely" stuff and presents challenging questions which are worth answering.
One of the things I appreciate about this book most is that it doesn't minimize the complexity and conflicting forces that are part of any life. Instead, it suggest some ways to define your purpose, your signature path, and make it the force that provides energy and focus for dealing with challenges.
I've given this book to many friends and colleagues to read on vacation, on sabbatical, and on the plane. I would recommend it highly to those who are thinking about changing careers, considering how best to use their talents and resources in the next phase of their life, or just giving themselves a tune-up to make sure that they're on the right path.
