Big Wheel at the Cracker Factory by Mickey Hess

I loved the cover of this book! Just reminded me of a box of Ritz crackers! The book is about anything but crackers, though! It is about searching for what we want to be when we grow up, and finding that what we want to be isn't always what we thought it was. It's about doing the job we work and study hard for, and finding that other jobs are necessary to fill in the gaps. It's about finding jobs, and looking for meaning in what we do. Sometimes funny, and always thoughtful and inspiring, I enjoyed this book. Mickey Hess has let us into his life for a year of working, going to school, and all his doubts and wonderings about what he wants to do when he grows up. He gives us his insights with a down to earth humour I found very engaging. If you've ever questioned where you're going next in your life and career, try this book. You'll find you're not alone.
