Totally digging this! After the second chapter, the book becomes more of a "chose your path journey." There are 3 sections, or "quests;" one for honors, one for nobility, and one for enlightenment. Chose your path!
Several years ago I was mesmerized by the amazing talent of a classical pianist named Chris Crossan. After playing a wide spectrum of music, spanning form Beethoven to Bach to the Beatles, he invited an admiring student to come up and play. The student seemed a bit off balance by the invitation. It wasn't that he was timid before audiences; it was that he didn't know how to play the piano. But Chris insisted, almost as if missing the most important part of the information. Chris kept emphasizing he was free to play anything he wanted. Again, the student, in somewhat embarrassed manner, explained he didn't know how to play the piano. Then, Chris pressed his point - Although the student had the opportunity, he didn't have the freedom. Opportunity and freedom are not the same thing.
