When Your Moment Comes

A guide to fulfilling your dreams, jodere, 2001

"Reading this book was like having a conversation with a wise, loving friend who only wants the best for you. Dan Pallotta's inspiring words and stories have shown me what, on some deep level, I already knew -- that a 5 year plan is not the way to bliss but that discovering my calling allowing the Universe to support me in a natural way is. His section on "kindness" opened my heart and brought me to tears. I plan to give this book to all my neices and nephews so that they will learn, aerly on, what success is really all about." - Amazon Review
