Some Quotes from Amazon
An informative study and perhaps a celebration of the "Purpose Driven Life"
"Exceptional Life: Living the Life You Were Meant to Live" is an informative study and perhaps a celebration of the "Purpose Driven Life", explained in an earlier publication by Kurt W. DuNard and so titled. As a manual, or tool to enlightenment, "Exceptional Life" contains specific techniques and suggestions to help the reader achieve purpose, meaning, and balance in life. Exercises and journal writing are among the effective approaches suggested. Author DuNard (a leading expert at helping people find their life purpose for more than thirty years) writes both inspirationally and practically. One of the most interesting chapters is "Legacy - a Different Kind of Immortality". In it DuNard suggests that everyone could make a life plan to create a legacy, related to his/her raison d'etre and purpose in life. DuNard further suggests reading "The Man Who Planted Trees," by Jean Gono to gain a fuller understanding of the "true feeling of legacy." DuNard also speaks of the "Namaste Attitude", or frame of mind, which enables one to give blessings to others. A very strongly recommended addition to personal and business self-help, self-improvement reading lists, "Exceptional Life" ranges from finding your purpose in life, or raison d'etre, to planning your ultimate legacy, spiritual, mental and physical.
Midwest Book Review
Really enjoyed the anecdotes, the emphasis on healthy living, learned some new tips (like the discussion on salt!), and the tenet which runs through the book which is based on the old Proverb, as a man thinketh, there will his heart be (or, you are what you believe). All in all, a great book, highly recommend you read this one!
A must read for everyone
Exceptional life is a book that should be read by people from all walks of life in all stages of life. The lessons the reader can take from this book will surely have a positive impact on both their personal and business lives.
The amount of information compiled, which was so eloquently integrated into the message, demonstrates an obvious lifetime of research by the author. I was especially impressed with the use of quotations throughout the book. They fit so well and flowed with the text beautifully while always emphasizing the point.
Don't pass this one up - you won't be dissapointed!
Terrific book plus guides and checklists - must read
This book is right on target with practical advice plus how-to guides to getting started in all areas of your life. It is a must read for everyone no matter where you are in life. A book that should be read and then re-read. It covers all the 'bases'. Improving in all areas will definitely lead to an exceptional life.
