Publisher's Summary

The inspirational number-one best seller by John P. Strelecky. Now translated into 36 languages and read by more than two million readers worldwide.

In a small cafe at a location so remote it sits in the middle of the middle of nowhere, John - a man in a hurry - is at a crossroads. Intent only on refueling before moving along on his road trip, he finds sustenance of an entirely different kind. In addition to the specials of the day, the cafe menu lists three questions all diners are encourage to consider.

  • Why are you here?
  • Do you fear death?
  • Are you fulfilled?

With this food for thought and the guidance of three people he meets at the cafe, John embarks on a journey of self-discovery that takes him from the executive suites of the advertising world to the surf of Hawaii's coastline. Along the way he discovers a new way to look at life, himself, and just how much you can learn from a green sea turtle.

Meh

I don't really get the hype on this book. I was really excited to listen to it, and it was okay, but I am kind of dissapointed. My expectations were high, but I just find this book to have the same exact message as any other personal developpement book. Nothing special.

A story that makes you think

As other reviews indicated - this book does not provide any information you don’t already know deep inside but it is entertaining and does make you stop and think
A very easy listen

Not for me

Struggled quite a bit with this book, I found the content somewhat redundant and pointless.

A book of revelation

I don't think that you should just listen to this audiobook. It would be nonsense.

I think that you should apply it to your life. It would change your life forever.

Also you should not listen to it only once.

It's really a book of revelations. It's an amazing book.

If you aren’t feeling totally fulfilled, try this!

This is a very basic, easy to read and understand Life purpose 101 handbook. The concepts are simple but many people have never considered them. I would be willing to bet that 99% of people would get benefit from reading this. It’s very short and easy so it’s worth it! I will especially be sharing this book with the younger people in my life who are just figuring out what they need to go do in the world. It will offer them a perspective that society for the most part has not.
