Book Review: The Angel Inside

The Angel Inside: Michelangelo’s Secrets For Following Your Passion and Finding the Work You Love, by Chris Widener

I had the opportunity to hear Chris Widener speak in person a couple of years ago. Just like his live talk, this book from the relative newcomer did not disappoint. A short but powerful read, it hammers home the mantra of most entrepreneurs; make your passion your job and you’ll never have to ‘work’ another day in your life. To add to the yummyness, the book teaches its lessons around the life and work of Michaelangelo. Not many ways to go wrong there. After you’ve read the speedy 94 pages, I’d recommend parusing the discussion guide and workbook at the back of the book. It’s a fantastic real-life application guide and reiterates the lessons learned in such a way as to ensure that the reader puts it down not only temporarily inspired but with a specific game plan on how to permanantly alter their life’s path. A great book to gift to others.
4.5/5 stars
