With a confident optimism that’s impossible not to like, narrator Tom Taylorson is notable for his appealing baritone voice and creative, authentic-sounding phrasing. He’s an excellent choice to deliver the author’s blunt message that, when choosing a career, what you’re passionate about is more important than economic security or stability. A shoot-from-the-hip academic and TED speaker, Smith says traditional professions are rapidly changing and that technological innovation can quickly make any skill set obsolete. The best job security is knowing what excites us and then doing the homework necessary to be successful in the real world of markets, finances, and social connections. More than follow-your-bliss advice, his repeated urging that we narrow our focus and balance our emotions with careful thinking is at once daunting and energizing. T.W.
