Loved it! It reads as a call to action for anyone who wants to do something good, AND pay the bills. Mycoskie's unqualified passion for his chosen work refreshes, delights, and inspires.

I absolutely love this book! It is very inspiring and motivational. Blake has a great outlook on business and on life in general. He is definitely someone that young people should aspire to be like or follow in his footsteps and this book helps guide you. I finished this book and immediately the wheels were turning....
