It's Never Too Late To Be What You Might Have Been by BJ Gallagher -- A Book Review
This book was inspired by and titled from a George Eliot quote. It uses this idea as a basis for sharing stories that will encourage readers that they can still achieve. The stories range from changing careers to being creative to finding love.
The real-life stories give advice to the reader as well as hope. Not only do the subjects share their stories, they tell about their failures and help show how to begin a journey. The these of each story is there is no such thing as too late, too old, too anything.
Regardless of what you are striving toward at this point, BJ Gallagher captures stories you can identify with. The people Gallagher selected for subjects offer a variety of backgrounds that inspire the reader further.
With quotes placed throughout the book and quick stories or observations, this collection meshes well and pulls the reader in for an uplifting experience.
This book is great for anyone having doubts about their choices or the path they should take. I recommend this to everyone and encourage it be sent as a present to others.
