    1. I'd recommend reading this book if you've never done this sort of self-reflection before because I wholeheartedly believe that we should live our lives purposefully and with our priorities before us - if we don't take the time to find out what we truly value in life ourselves, someone else will tell us what to prioritize, and we'll spend most of our lives unhappy because we're pushing to make our lives fit someone else's (or some group of people's) values and desires.I liked this book more for i [...]

    2. Don't be fooled by this book's tagline: "effortless path to discovering your destiny" -- after all, the authors say in their epilogue that it's taken them more than 30 years to align their lives with their passions. The book is simply a reminder to be clear about what's important to you. The stories from the authors, their colleagues, and their customers are curious and sometimes inspiring, but "the test" is nothing special: list what you're passionate about, rank order the items, identify "mark [...]

    3. Quick recap of the "meat" in this book: 1. Make a list of your passions. 2. Prioritise them. 3. Voila! You now know what your passions are. The rest of the book is made up of irrelevant stories about the author's traveling in India, meeting with "saints". Also, unless you already knew, you should consult with fortune tellers before you start any project of major importance in your life (Doh! - Doesn't everyone know this already?)! The fortune telling stuff is one of the "important" messages in t [...]

    4. 1. This is NOT a business book.2. There is probably one chapter in this book that is interesting and not a sales pitch.3. I don't know what compelled me to read this for as long as I did, but I did not enjoy it.

    5. Some good ideas on identifying your areas of passion. The new age junk (think Fairfield, Iowa and TM) gets a little old though.

    6. I stopped after a few chapters. Really, don't even bother. I love self help books, but this is more a "I love my ego" book. It contains a lot of ego from the author, a lot of sale pitches, a lot of uninteresting stories and not a lot of helpful tips. It's not even worth one star.

    7. By page 37, I was done but I tried to choke down the rest of it by continuing on (because I like to finish the things I start). Finally, I had to admit: this book was wasting my time. After all, I have a list of household chores to get to and a list of things to do with my children, and a list of lists to make. This author is so full of herself I wondered, “If I shake this book, will I knock a little humility into it?" Or perhaps I should just go buy her other book; you know, the one she is sh [...]

    8. Wow, one of my FAVORITE SELF HELP/ INSPIRATIONAL books ever!!!^^ Reminds me of "The Element: How Finding Your Passion Can Change Your Life" by Ken Robinson. Both books are soo uplifting, so energizing, it's a REWARD to simply read and "experience" these books! ^^Did the passion test, and boy I was very surprised about some of my "top 5 passions," especially their ordering. Love that emphasis on how the CLARITY of what your passions are, is crucial to living your life passionately and making your [...]

    9. I have rarely found a book so easy to follow in terms of a process that helped me clearly determine my focus and actions based on what sings to my soul at a given moment in time. I use it every 6-12 months to help course-correct and re-align a fabulous tool for personal growth and evolution.

    10. I absolutely love this book. I return to it over and over the help me get clear and define where I want to go and what I want in my life. There are so many practical tips entwined in the stories. I absolutely recommend it to anyone who is stuck in a rut or is searching for a deeper purpose.

    11. This book is an amazing read! I learned so much about myself and about how I can discover and manifest my destiny. I particularly enjoyed Janet's interviews with transformative people at the end of the book. I

    12. LOVE IT!!! I checked it out from the library but I bought it. It is something I will use over and over again to keep my "goals" or passions on track.

    13. I think this is a great book to review your activites and realise your passions in each of them

    14. List passions then rate top 5 even if you do not know how you will do it. Keep these in mind as you make your daily decisions.

    15. Love the passion test, after taking the test, the stories and what not droned on some. Really good read.

    16. great advice for people searching for clarity about finding what is most important in their livesd acting in the everyday world in a way that helps you actualize your dream

    17. This is one of those earnest self-help books with easy answers to tough issues. Like a lot of books of this ilk, it starts with a premise that has merit: find your passion and you will find success. True enough but if you are to believe this book, that is all you need. And, the author can fill a whole book telling you this same thing in many different ways. It is all so formulaic, with variations such as bringing the author's life experiences into it to demonstrate how really easy it is. I total [...]

    18. The first part of the book gives simple strategies for coming to identify your passions and begin to mindfully pursue them. While these strategies are not unique, it does give a good primer on this type of thinking.I did not like the second part of the book, and would recommend skipping it. This part is comprised of interviews with people who have manifested their passions in their own lives. I found most of these stories and interviews to be hard to connect with, so they didn't really do much t [...]

    19. No good for people without passionI am one of those people. Sometimes there are interesting thoughts in books like these, even if they are a bit squishy and have no real depth.There is nothing here for those of you who have no passion. If you don't have a burning desire, this tome is as useful as sand to a thirsty fish. Don't bother. Spliced between the pitching and up selling is a story that I found myself skipping far too often. Either be a parable or be a non-fiction book, but don't be both A [...]

    20. I agree with other reviewers that the title of the book is misleading. Making a list with pretty much no direction and then prioritizing it does not equal a "test" in my point of view. I skimmed the rest of the book which is just stories about how great their "method" is. I read this to see what kinds of materials are out there on this topic and was disappointed.

    21. This concept changed my life. I still use the Passion Test as a check point every couple of years.

    22. I became aware of “The Passion Test” via Power Camp, a leadership camp hosted around the country that is part executive training and part getting what you want. I was getting hung up on knowing what I wanted and decided to delve into this body of knowledge to understand myself better.The book is well written and the exercises are intuitive without the assistance of a coach. In a nutshell, you list out things you are passionate about, whittle it down to the top 5, create markers of how you wi [...]

    23. Listened to the audio version. There were some helpful tidbits here and there, but I mostly listened to it in x2 to get through the (sometimes over-the-top) stories.

    24. This is an interesting book with some good information and if you haven't ever looked at your priorities, I would recommend it. It was interesting for me to read as a Christian because there are some fairly frequent large overarching statements that seem to have some truth to them, but really aren't 100% right. For example, one passage reads "What we must realize is, 'I am part of God's creation. As He is perfect, so I am perfect. As He is divine, so I am divine. As He wills, so it will unfold i [...]

    25. I find the ideas behind The Passion Test excellent, but like so many Self Help books, the writing style is rather dreary, repetitive, soporific and unnecessarily wordy. However, the ideas and passion behind the book shine clearly through the book and are motivating, invigorating and thought-provoking. I particularly like her links throughout the book to others who specialise in different Self Help areas, which are a clear guide to other areas for personal development.At the end of it, I reckon t [...]

    26. I am trying to figure out what to do with my life as I am sure many others are. This test was made by people who still don't seem to know what to do with theirs. The authors start out by freely admitting how many times they each have changed their focus and passion throughout their lives. Not exactly who I want to take advice from. The test is sitting down and listing out 10 attributes of your dream life. How did that make a book? There are no new ideas or messages presented. The most telling pa [...]
