Path to Freedom: Leading a Life of Joy, Impact, and Abundance by Nader Vasseghi is a non-fiction self-help book with the intent of guiding readers toward a genuinely fulfilling existence. Vasseghi leads with an introduction to his own personal journey and the positive transformation that evolved when everything he thought he wanted fell apart. Path to Freedom is separated by four interconnected but distinct parts: Joy, Impact, Abundance, and Freedom. Within these parts are targeted themes and an intensive look at what makes them relevant and important, a practice section for proactive involvement and thought from the reader, where to find additional material through tools and resources, and several quotes that work in harmony with the text.
Using a straightforward and succinct method of writing, Nader Vasseghi has a voice of encouraging authority that is as passionate and knowledgable as it is clear and informative. Path to Freedom refrains from the usual pandering of guilt and instead shifts the focus away from who we have been to who we have the potential to become. I found the greatest motivation through the second chapter, Impact, and in particular the task of removing ourselves from our comfort zones. He says, “Extending the realm of our possibility is no easy task if we are not grounded in who we are.” This is the type of book I'd wish I'd found when I was younger. It's unlikely my younger self would have been open to a more internal approach to facilitate external change, but I'm so grateful to have come across it now. No doubt legions of others will be also.
