This was such an interesting book!  I loved learning about how different cultures view their careers and how they balance the careers with their personal lives.

Once in a while I like to add some non fiction in my reading list and this seemed an appropriate book to pick up. I felt like I would find it interesting because of what it offered, a look into the mindset of people doing their daily jobs and what drives them to do so. 

It is as simple and straightforward as that. There is a brief introduction by the author before we are given a verbatim story in the words of the people themselves. This made it a little harder sometimes because english is not always their first language some statements may not convey the emphasis that a video might have conveyed. This is the only reason that this was not a five-star read for me.Other than that, I did feel for them. I love the fact that the author targeted those people who come from adversity(for the most part) or something that helps sustain their current efforts to do a good job. I also really enjoyed getting to know more about jobs that I would have never known anything about otherwise. 

If you read non-fiction to 'think' about something new, this book is definitely something to consider.

This book is about so much more than jobs. The reader is treated to the life stories of 15 people and while we do learn about their jobs, more importantly, we get to hear about their lives that lead them to the jobs they currently hold and why they chose to pursue that line of work. Sometimes, a job is just a job; sometimes, a job is an extension of who we are.

Thank you to Greenleaf Book Group and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.
