Charlie Wu has been an accountant for years, stuck in a job he hates, a job that's sucking away his soul. He knows he should leave and go for his dream job, but he just can't -- or won't -- quit. If he leaves his good paying job, he fears his parents and friends will think he's a stupid failure -- and he knows he could fail! So, Charlie waits and stews as the seasons pass, content with shoving money into the hole in his heart.
One night Charlie has a vision where he meets Eudaimonia, the Queen of his Soul. She whispers: "Be somebody else before you're thirty," and launches Charlie on a wild, funny, touching, and ultimately life changing dream.
If you've ever lost your way on life's journey; if you've ever settled for a paycheck instead of your passion; if you've ever postponed your life's special dream, "The New, True, Charlie Wu" is for - and about! - you!
