Do you wonder if you can figure out the world and your place in it? Do you question how your life can be truly significant? Reflecting on his own story and the stories of others, Chuck Colson examines the beliefs and assumptions that form the fabric of our lives. You'll read about: The king of corporate scandals, the woman the Chinese Cultural Revolution couldn't break, the most tragic figure from Watergate, a man recovering from same-sex attraction, the film characters who say the most about what's happening in culture now. "The Good Life" searches for answers to the questions we all ask: Who am I? Why am I here? How can I find significance in my life? How can I make my life count? These are the core questions and the central passions of this book. Your answers to these questions will determine how your life story is written. Here's the thing. The worldview you live by has everything to do with what you will become. Understanding this will utterly change your life. Written by Chuck Colson with Harold Fickett

Motivational, if you are religous. I am not of Christian faith, but I think anyone can find meaning in this one.

Charles Colson gives a reasoned argument for what and what does not truly constitute the Good Life. It is NOT fame, power, money, or deciding for yourself what is true and good. It is, in fact, living life God's way. He incorporates examples from all over the world, including his own Watergate and prison experiences. Very rich and well-argued.
