The truth is, thrill seeking and intense experiences can be exciting, but they can’t give you the sense of true meaning you long for. Here’s why: You were created for a specific purpose. Lots of people don’t believe that, but it’s true. In these pages you’ll find out why…and you’ll learn how to live a life of purpose and meaning instead of just trying to fill your existence with unhealthy relationships, destructive decisions, expensive possessions, and anything else that on the surface, looks like it will provide satisfaction–but only takes more life than it gives.
You Are Here will open your eyes. It will encourage and equip you to seek your unique yet universal purpose. And it will help you use your gifts, personality, strengths, and even your weaknesses to achieve genuinely great things. You’ve got a lot to deal with in life. Even so, you can overcome your obstacles, accomplish your life purpose, and live out your passion. It’s your choice. And it can start right now.

Finding Gods purpose for your life can be confusing, and Holland aims to guide readers through the process as he explores the subject of vocation in a very casual way. You Are Here draws many comparisons between finding your purpose and canoeing on the open ocean: both can be exciting, challenging, and dangerous. The metaphors employed in every chapter engage the reader and illustrate the authors points well, sometimes sounding so vivid that a Hawaiian breeze seems to be turning the pages for you. Although the book is well-written and may even teach you something about ocean canoeing, the discussion of Gods unique purpose for everyones life never goes much deeper than the water along the shoreline.
Content-wise, You Are Here is complete without becoming complex. The sentences are short and poignant, meant more to encourage the reader than to lead anyone in deep contemplation. This is a cursory glance into life calling; readers probably wont have any epiphanies while reading this book, but it may just point them in the right direction. Section one guides through finding what God has in store for individuals. In section two, Holland explores the characteristics that will help to get readers there, with each quality illustrated as one of the seats in a professional rowing team. Finally, section three recaps and applies the first two parts of the book and adds some final words of wisdom. You Are Here adequately covers how to prepare for Gods purpose in life without becoming overly theological. Simply put, this book probably wont redefine the readers life. However, if someone wants a laid-back text that will raise spirits and point him in the right direction, then maybe You Are Here will be the road map that can guide to where God can use him at full potential.
