Customer Review: 


Brightmon really respects the reader's time here. His background in library work shines through, as he has curated the ideas some of the best-known thought-leaders, as well as more obscure philosophers, into a book that cuts through the overwhelming noise of self-help hucksters that plague modern best-seller lists. Every line is filled with practical wisdom. Normally with books of this nature, authors tend to love to "hear themselves talk;" Brightmon goes a different route, eschewing fluff for the sake of conciseness and content; thus, I had to similarly shed my tendency to speed-read, as I am used to authors hiding their gold under piles of superfluous chatter.

His tone is approachable and easily readable, yet his words demand contemplation. It is as if he is giving you the extra time you save reading to actually go and do the actions this book inspires you to do. This, in essence, is not the sort of book that you consume and then condemn to a lifetime of dust-collection. Rather, this is a compact guide that deserves a presence in your briefcase, backpack, messenger bag, or purse; something to return to again and again to keep you "going north."
