A friend of mine recently published a book. It’s a great read and I highly recommend checking it out. He has done a lot of talks around the country on this topic.
I met Derek at a NYC speaking event and he was a cool guy. I’m a big fan of his message and want to share this book with my readers and send a little traffic his way.
The Definition of Success tells the story of Derek Snook, a recent college graduate from an upper class town who, driven by a search for meaning in life, purpose in his vocation, and jadedness towards his upbringing, voluntarily lives homeless for a year. Funny, heartbreaking, and deeply challenging, through encounters with the homeless this story confronts the things society tells us to blindly accept. We join Derek as he asks questions about success. We watch him grapple with his beliefs in a religiously hypocritical culture.
Here’s a bit of a bio about the book.
Check out his TedX talk too!
