Item description for Get a Life!: It Is All About You by Reggie McNeal...
Overview It's not an insult; it's an exciting invitation. In this book, the author begins to change the conversation about what it means to live the intentional or purpose-driven life. He suggests that since we are "squarely in the crosshairs of God's design and redemptive love," the popular phrase "it's not about me" is apt to be misinterpreted.

This Book Will Help You Change Your Life Sep 22, 2007
Reggie McNeal does an incredible job of helping you find what may be stopping you from living the life you were created to live. He does this without overbearing or simplistic arguments like some purpose driven books. Instead he uses simple stories and exercises that highlight the importance of building on your God given strengths, skills, and experiences and finding ways to get around those people, situations, and habits that keep stopping you short. As he says in the introduction, who wouldn't want to live? apparently a lot of people. I highly recommend this book used in conjunction with Living Your Strengths or Strength Finder 2.0 both from Gallup Press. They have helped me and many of the people I work with.
