The Renaissance Soul
The Renaissance Soul: Life Design for People with Too Many Passions to Pick Just One, by Margaret Lobenstine, 2/5
Lobenstine’s positive attitude toward people who are unwilling to settle down to one career was refreshing and she told several inspiring success stories. However, the book failed to convince me that success as a multi-talented person relies on anything other than your standard hard work and good opportunities that can’t be planned for. The cynical side of me is quick to point out that any career and life coach who has had over 5,000 clients, as Lobenstine has, is bound to come up with enough success stories for a book. Also, it felt very circular to take career advice from someone whose career is giving out advice.
