Referred to as an "inspirational novel", Brendon Burchard presents a fantasy that many of us share - the chance to start life over again. Folded into the story of a man whose life has become so convoluted that he can't see the good parts or the opportunities that are still open to him. One day, during another in a long-running string of arguments about how he has to change, to get up and finally do something about their lives, his wife tells him that she's going to a "magic place" that will make their dreams come true. He scoffs as she slams the door behind her, not to be seen again for weeks. About a month later, his wife is found. She'd been in a car accident and taken to a hospital. She's at death's door when she hands him an envelope with a ticket to the magical place so he can find the treasures that await him there.
Change is always difficult. No matter how bad things get, its always more comfortable to stick with what you know. Books like this can help you to overcome your natural reluctance to take the plunge into new ventures and new opportunities. Couched in an entertaining story, "Life's Golden Ticket" will certainly be one of those books you'll be hearing about as the U.S. wrests itself from it's current economic problems.
