    This book was a lot of fun and also very helpful. I was pleasantly surprised because this book exceeded my expectations. This is a book that I would consider a go to throughout my life. It is not overwhelming in its analysis or In the advice it gives for change. The way that Millman presents numerology makes you feel empowered and inspired. I am truly impressed with his writing, his message, and his mission to help people find meaning and purpose on their lives.

It is not overwhelming in its analysis or In the advice it gives for change. The way that Millman presents numerology makes you feel empowered and inspired. I am truly impressed with his writing, his message, and his mission to help people find meaning and purpose on their lives.

    The only thing that I really want to emphasize is that Millman states to be careful of labeling, which I think is good advice. And birth numbers are related to astrology which makes me think they might be a little hocus pocus. So I am taking this not as the end all be all but as a way to improve your life and overcome personal weakness.

    I'm a 33/6. The laws section is the most significant area of the book. The book does seem to be eerily correct in nailing people's challenges and such. Not sure if this is due to the wording being generic enough for anything to be true or applicable, similar to fake psychic readings, but regardless it is fun to look up friends and family and will give insights into people. Some numbers so perfectly nailed people I know I was amazed and it helped me understand them better.

Some numbers so perfectly nailed people I know I was amazed and it helped me understand them better.

    People who like this book will also love the book "Know the Name, Know the Person", find handwriting analysis interesting, find colorstrology entertaining, and may like astrology. Whether any of these are true or not is probably not as important as the words and what they can teach you about people and personalities. I figure nearly everything in these has something worth evaluating.

    To better understand people I recommend "The Five Love Languages" and learning about NLP.

    The book made a huge difference in answering questions that I had about myself and now am checking it against the important people in my life. I read some of the other reviews and found them interesting. Some believe in the numerology and others don't. I guess the most important thing is that if you find inspiration great and if you don't. . you have the right idea to keep looking.

    I just love this book! The insight it provides is accurate and helpful and sometimes confronting - which is how we instigate change within ourselves. I have lent this book out to friends 3 times - all three times the book was never returned to me. So I have purchased it four times - because it is one of my all time favourites.

    What I like about it is that I can always refer to it at any given time and I always understand something new when I do. I love that. And I found it is a book that grows as I grow as a person - never to be outdated.

    The way that Dan Millman wrote this book is supportive, informative and authoritative all at the same time - quite unique.

    I highly recommend "The Life You Were Born to Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life Purpose", especially to those who are willing to entertain different perspectives on life.

    Often a funny read, this book gently guides the reader towards many realizations and to a desire to change within themselves what needs to be changed for their happiness and success.

    Years ago this book really helped me to see the meaning to my life, to overcome challenges, and gave me direction and purpose. And it worked! Now, years later, I reflect back and know of the many times I re-read this book and can also say that the book has helped me along my life's journey and to meet the many challenges that are now behind me.

    I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. A great read !!!!!!!!!

    This book goes into numerology and provides insight to the life you were born to live based off of calculations you do with your birth numbers. I only read the part in this book relevant for my numbers, and a few of others close to me whose birthdays I knew. And for me and those I checked, the things that Millman had to say were pretty right on. It was very helpful and I think if you put the title in you google search you should find a PDF version which can allow you to peruse the pages on your

    This book is eerily accurate.

    I'm a 30/3 and so learned that people with my numbers have "inherent gifts in any form of teaching, counseling, healing, performing or creative expression due to their ability to tune into people and subtle dimensions. They can be successful in any field, but they feel most fulfilled if their work offers opportunities for self-expression."

    You might not want to hear what this book has to tell you.

    You might not want to hear what this book has to tell you.

    Reading the sections on the 3, 0 and 30/3 brought things into clear relief for me. I truly believe numerology can be a tool for self-improvement and isn't a dark art. You have to suspend your belief that something that can't be proven actually works like a scientific method or is as accurate as handwriting analysis.

    Read this book if you dare.

    p.s. - For the numbers of the famous people listed in the back, add up their birthdate because the numbers given for Hillary Rodham Clinton were 34/7 and her birthday numbers actually add up to 30/3, which was listed elsewhere.

    It figures that the women I admire-Nikki Giovanni, Hillary Rodham Clinton and my style and humanitarian idol, Audrey Hepburn, were all 30/3's, as am I. It's said that like attracts like and I have no doubt I felt a connection to these women because they share these numbers. So you will possibly find that the famous people you admire have a lot in common with you.

    The ultimate case for charting your own destiny and daring to dream big.

    I am obsessed with this book. I'm not a hippy, I just find this kind of thing fascinating. Don't be fooled by the terribly cheesey title & cover; it is a fascinating numerology system that has Pythagorean lineage and appears to be scarily accurate.

    It's unlike your typical horoscope-esque guide etc., it covers every possible number combination of the 20th century and gives a detailed 4-5 page break down for each of those combinations. The book is very easy to read, with an introduction to th

    I am obsessed with this book. I'm not a hippy, I just find this kind of thing fascinating. Don't be fooled by the terribly cheesey title & cover; it is a fascinating numerology system that has Pythagorean lineage and appears to be scarily accurate.

    It's unlike your typical horoscope-esque guide etc., it covers every possible number combination of the 20th century and gives a detailed 4-5 page break down for each of those combinations. The book is very easy to read, with an introduction to the system, a chapter on each key number and some additional information that is of interest. It's clear and straight to the point.

    What I liked about this system of numerology that Dan Millman presents, is that it doesn't define your personality as many other systems of this sort do. Rather, it addresses the central things that you will deal with in your life, which may be reflected either positively or negatively (and not indefinitely positively or negatively either, but differently in different situations, for example).

    I am now a creep who asks people their birth dates within minutes of meeting them. Not to say I absolutely sincerely put all of my faith in this system - I just, as I have said, find it incredibly fascinating. In the way that someone is fascinated by and acts according to superstition, without necessarily truly believing absolutely in it. I do however find that it reflects accurately and relevantly in my life; and I do encourage people to look into it if it is something that is of interest to them.

    Are you intrigued by numerology? Have you been curious about checking into it? Millman was curious, and he began studying it a while before publishing this book. He was so impressed by the insights it gave, he decided to write a full-length treatise on how numerology can offer insight and guidance to one's own self and path. The results are at very least fascinating, whether you "buy" them or not. The book, all the way through, is about reading your numbers and interpreting them. There is a full

    Are you intrigued by numerology? Have you been curious about checking into it? Millman was curious, and he began studying it a while before publishing this book.

The results are at very least fascinating, whether you "buy" them or not. The book, all the way through, is about reading your numbers and interpreting them. There is a full description of correspondences--exhaustive really--and it will give nutritious food for thought to anyone who studies it closely.

    I see this book as a gigantic, complex journal prompt for anyone seeking to look further inside her/his self and fathom the depths and purposes of her/his life. Study the numbers, look up the results, and then reflect at length on their meaning. Whether it's "real" or not ends up being a moot point. The book is there to challenge you and get you to look deeper into who you are. I personally benefited greatly from this process, and I found that the correspondences were surprisingly accurate.

    Highly recommended as a kind of meaningful oddity of a book. Suspend your disbelief and try it!

    I need to re-read this book because I only remember being kind of underwhelmed at the time. I'm seriously considering re-reading just about everything on my bookshelves mainly because I am not the person I was when I originally read these books and I'd love to see how my perspective has changed over time and how well the books hold up. This book just might be more meaningful to me now - or not. If so, I've found a treasure. If not, I can send the book on its way. Since I now have my beloved kind

    I need to re-read this book because I only remember being kind of underwhelmed at the time. I'm seriously considering re-reading just about everything on my bookshelves mainly because I am not the person I was when I originally read these books and I'd love to see how my perspective has changed over time and how well the books hold up. This book just might be more meaningful to me now - or not. If so, I've found a treasure. If not, I can send the book on its way. Since I now have my beloved kindle I have the opportunity to (potentially) pare down my book cases which are stuffed over-full. I have books in many other places stacked up as well. My New Year's resolution is to review, read and keep, add to kindle storage or give away. But I absolutely won't do that till I know what I've got in my hands first.
