If you want to share a personal passion with the community at large, this book will speak to you. After profiling several successful businesspeople across the US, award-winning journalist Adam Davidson has come up with eight rules to survive what he deems the "passion economy".
Among his case studies are an Amish family who make farm equipment, a former priest turned chocolatier and an ice-cream maker obsessed with the perfect scoop.
He says the passion economy offers unprecedented opportunities for curious, ambitious individuals to combine the things they love with their careers.
