Review by Library Journal (2008-11-15)

Award-winning journalist and former writer for SmartMoney Taylor has assembled lessons for living from 30 of the most successful minds in today's world. He organizes the offerings into five categories, including giving back to the world, pursuing one's passion, getting in touch with oneself, stretching one's horizons, and nurturing body, mind, and spirit. Writers in each category recall defining moments in their lives and give advice from their experience. For example, NBA All-Star Chris Webber shares that life is about more than stardom, and New York Times reporter Jennifer Lee argues for the necessity of a "screw-up" fund. The guidance contained in 30 is valuable for people of any age but particularly for those young enough to apply it to a lengthy span of years. Highly recommended for all libraries.
