Publisher's Description

"Sweet Spot."

Ever swung a baseball bat or paddled a Ping-Pong ball? If so, you know the oh-so-nice feel of the sweet spot. Life in the sweet spot rolls like the downhill side of a downwind bike ride. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you. A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot.

But if you're like 70 percent of working adults, you haven't found it. You don't find meaning in your work, or you don't believe your talents are used. What can you do? You're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure.

Best-selling author Max Lucado has found it. In Cure for the Common Life, he offers practical tools for exploring and identifying your own uniqueness, motivation to put your strengths to work, and the perfect prescription for finding and living in your sweet spot for the rest of your life.

Author Bio

More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.

    I started this book off with an eye roll or thirty, but once I got into it, I liked it. Lucado wants to help you find your "sweet spot in life", where you feel like you are doing what you're meant to be doing. The language is a little annoying ("you were born prepacked-for a purpose!") BUT if you can see past that, the book is probably useful. And I will know more, once I have found the time to sit down and fill out the "workbook" in the back of the book which is meant to serve as a guide to understanding your purpose.

    FTC discaimer: the publisher provided me with a copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review nor required to say _ anything.

    I received Max Lucado's newest book, Cure for the Common Life, for free through booksneeze.com in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

    Cure for the Common Life is a book about finding your God-given calling. It's a self-help book about discovering the career that will not only bring you happiness, but also fulfillment. Lucado argues this can be found by keeping two questions in mind: "What do you love to do?" and "How can you glorify God with it?"

    The book is 220 pages long, but only 140 of them are actual writing by Lucado. The remaining pages are a guide to help you find your calling. This makes this book a pretty short read. Overall, the book is very typical of Lucado. He addresses a very large, complex topic with popular-level writing but doesn't really give many answers. He essentially just talks about the problem and then describes what it looks like when the problem is fixed without really describing how to do the fixing in any real, meaningful way.

    Overall, I didn't find the book very helpful. I can't say that I walked away with any meaningful information and I wouldn't suggest buying the book unless you are really unhappy with your career choice and are looking for a way to change that. It's possible that this book might also benefit conflicted high schoolers but it's usefulness doesn't reach a wide audience

    While the book was a very easy read and rarely dry, I wouldn't recommend buying this book. I just didn't find it very helpful.

    Cure for the Common Life by Max Lucado is a resource and inspirational book of 214 pages. Only 141 pages is resource text. The remainder of the book is a series of reference sections provided for the reader to discover his/her "sweet spot" also known as the thing or talent which a person should perform in order to feel fulfilled in life.

    The book is easy to read and is peppered with inspirational one-liners. I appreciate that Max has taken the time to break down the steps necessary to find the thing in life which God created each person to undertake. My only reservation in recommending this book to every person is that not every person in Scripture enjoyed what he did for an occupation. Jonah, for example, ran from his calling, and complained for the rest of the story. Lot found the sweetest spot he could live in and ended up losing his wife and having his daughters turn on him. These are just two examples; there's more. In short, if you are looking for a good book to help direct a youth who feels uncertain of his future, or an adult who feels trapped in her job, this may be a good resource book for each to find direction for their next phase in life. It is my opinion that this should only be the first step. Prayer and listening to His voice is the ultimate litmus test for God's direction in your life!
