Basko writes in a friendly, mentoring manner and explains that feeling out of sorts or unsure of which direction to head in life can be very common. Most importantly, Basko explains that its even okay to feel this way in order to bring yourself to realize your function in life. Instead of only instructing the reader on what to do, Basko fills the book with questions and assessments in order to really challenge and engage one into action. These tools are set up in a way that allow for discoveries and also roadblocks to be realized and handled. Basko starts each chapter with a motivational quote as well as a Bible verse that pertains to each message in the chapter. Basko acts as an instrument of faith by spreading Gods message to those that need it and his faith is inspiring and uplifting. While the religious connotations may not strike a chord with every reader, the questions and solutions that the book presents are universal. Baskos even, thoughtful writing fills the book with personal stories and anecdotes that allows for the message to come across warmly, rather than as an impersonal self-help book.
Whats Your Function? is a great book for anyone that is at an impasse in their life or career and is looking for a little direction and even hope. Figuring out the individuals function can help people discover answers that they may not have even realized that they were seeking in the first place, which is where this book comes in perfectly.
