What Our Readers Say About The Book
Chris and Janet Attwood have provided a clear, simple, and effective method to help you identify your core passions so you can create the fulfilling life you deserve.
I want everybody take The Passion Test. As an outcome of coaching people for three decades I have learned that lasting success begins with discovering, staying connected to, and getting good at your passions. Some of the things you will become passionate about may not even have been invented yet – so reading this book and taking The Passion Test several times a year will keep you connected and on track. Please give yourself the gift of the passionate life.
I couldn’t put it down. The story is so engaging, I almost forgot how much I wanted to take the test. Then, taking the test, I realized how valuable it was to hear Janet’s story and what she went through to get to the point she could live her passion.
People like to knock books like these because their ideas are perhaps too simple. My thinking, however, is just the opposite- all the good ideas that really work ARE simple.
To me, the biggest value of this book is that it can really help one get focused on their passions and the things they really want out of life- and few things are more important than that.
Sure you can reduce the book down to its simplest form of “make a list of your passions”. But then again, weight loss can be reduced down to “eat less and exercise more” as well. Yes, that’s a simple and effective solution, but I doubt most people will be successful with just that simple piece of advice alone. And THAT’S the real value of the book- it provides guidance on how to have a fulfilling life using a very simple idea.
Get this book if you feel like something’s not quite right in your life and you need a change of direction- the book will help. Remember, you can’t get what you want until you know WHAT you want.
The Passion Test…as a Life Coach I’ve been there, done it all…yet, this is great! Fresh, exciting, effective! For those of us into self-improvement and personal growth, The Passion Test is a wonderful, intense tool for achieving maximum transformation at truly minimal cost.
The first half of the book is made up of narrative and powerful personal processes that the reader can do to help her/him discover their passions. The second half of the book consists of interviews with famous people (e.g., Dennis Waitley, Stephen Covey, Debbie Ford) who have followed their passions. The second half was fine, but the first part was incredible for me.
When I re-discovered my passions, I found it made the rest of my life clearer, and thus far more likely that I will have the kind of life I want. This process is one I will look forward to repeating periodically—semi-annually or so. The price of the book is so small—to deliver these processes in a seminar format would cost hundreds of dollars—and would be worth it!
