Acuff has hit the nail on the head. His is a balanced approach to looking at the risks, rewards, consequences, and successes of pursuing one's dreams and goals. Acuff examines the all-or-nothing approach, the do-nothing approach, and the do-something approach to pursuing dreams and goals. He briefly addresses passion as the core of discovering one's dreams. He draws on his own experiences to illustrate the principles about which he writes. A reader could benefit from reading the entire book first, and then going back and implementing the principles one chapter at a time.

This book gives good practical advice on the importance of holding on to your day job, doing good work for your employer and not making foolish decisions. Even if I never reach my "dream job" I am now more motivated to do not just good but great work for my employer.

The author writes about his experience of getting his dream job with Dave Ramsey and draws from it a formula for success. His recommendation to "start with what you have and build from there" seems to be a conservative way to start, and at the same time a very doable first step. The author seems empowered by having taken "the bull by the horns" and doing something toward making his dream come true. I would, however, have appreciated more detail on how to find out what my calling or "dream job" is. Author is entertaining and uses many modern references which seemed aimed at Gen-X'ers (like me) who are about to (or already have) hit a wall in their career. He also projects a lot of hope and actionable items that you can use to make progress toward your dreams.
