So I decided on the The Traveler's Gift for my holiday reading. My reading nowadays tends to rotate from Spiritual/Self Help books to Business/Management books it depends on my mood. If I'm feeling like I'm in a bit of a funk I read something that I know will be uplifting and give me a bit of perspective on things. If I already feel like I am ready to kick life's butt then I read books about success stories, business and management that I can apply to my daily work and life.
The Traveler's Gift was a pretty good read overall, its about a guy who loses everything and then gets sent back through time where he has encounters with historical figures, each of which teach him one thing that he needs to do to turn his life around.
I liked this book especially because while it did get its point across it was not patronising or condescending like some self help books can be where they talk to you like a moron who has no idea about life. Now I am not one of those people who reads a self help book and says "Oh my god! This book changed my life!" I find most of what's written in them to be common sense. But I do find that when dealing with the daily hustle and bustle of life you sometimes forget some of the most important things that you need to keep in mind and get into some negative and bad habits. Books like this can really help in get you out of that.
Anywaaaayyyzzzz, thats my two cents. If you like to read, and you feel like you are in a but of a rut, I definitely recommend you pick up a copy of this book. :)
