A useful and easy-to-read self-help book

Author Daniel Pink provides readers with evidence from his research that proves that there is no such thing as “no regrets.”  If you live long enough, everyone experiences regret. According to his findings it is very much a part of the human experience. In the final portion of the book, Pink offers simple techniques that readers can adopt to reframe their thinking about past experiences and use the lessons learned from them to more effectively shape their lives moving forward. Unlike many self-help / pop psychology books, I found this one to be practical, especially given that the recommendations he offers seem fairly easy to implement into one’s life.
