Web developers did it to bring together multiple sources onto one internet page. Musicians and DJs followed by sampling songs from different genres to create new music. Now everyone is doing it: at work, on the weekends, in business. It's time for professionals and businesses to cash in on the mash up.
The days of being defined by a single job title are vanishing. The futu

Such a waste of time & money.
I mean ..they were repeating the same idea "plural is good" and no practical advices were given except in 2 chapters. ( ch 9 was good )
Anyways, they could summarize it into an article.
Also, they are not very pursuing and some advices do not apply to all "mashers" just on the ones they met.
The book is closer to motivational speech.. and i don't like those.

This book has a great "go-get-'em" attitude, but it falls a bit thin on real content.
There's a lack of variety in the interviewees, being focused on social media, blogging and entertainment work as well as the frustratingly vague "consulting" title.
Concrete advice and tips are an afterthought at the back of the book which is disappointing. However I have found it to be a good companion book to Refuse to Choose!: Use All of Your Interests, Passions, and Hobbies to Create the Life and Career of

This book was exactly what I was hoping it was: to the point, full of good advice and inspiring ideas for a gal who has no idea what post-graduation will look like. Mash Up! assured me that I should enjoy the next year of school left -- thankful that I have a plan for at least this year and worry more about my goals than creating a perfect plan (referred to as an "unplan"). I made a list of all the things I've thought about doing with my life and know that I don't have to dismiss all of it as a ...more

I had high hopes for this book, but it fell a little short. Lots of name dropping used to bring their mash-up, plural living thoughts into the pages, but really light on the actual implementation.

The authors attempt to give readers an understanding of what drives them, and how to use that information to create their story and present marketable skills to the world... again, they attempt this, but it falls short. The "interviews" are predictable and when the skills "communicating ideas" and "ins

Very good description of how the future looks for more and more people when it comes to work. So many of us (myself included), have had our souls sucked out of us by our jobs (and who hasn't from time time?). This book gives you a do-able "un-plan" to mashing your many talents (yes, you do have them, you just have to be still and re-discover them in many cases - again, because you may be in a job that is sucking your soul right out of you!). Lots of helpful insights and inspiration along the way ...more

This is great for people who still need convincing that a "project" mindset won't work for them. The book employs good use of interviews of mashers. For people who are already doing it, the book provides the reader with a pretty good entry-level framework on how to go about the management of all these mash-ups.

Light & quick read, not all that hot on detail or depth but at least it was encouraging.

I enjoyed the interviews overall, though felt they weren't well curated and ended up leaving a sense of "bulk creation"

Excellent description of the way the work world is today. All ages could benefit from this book's ideas especially those considering a job or career change.

Really enjoyed reading the book and success stories of people who went plural from singular.

“A friend’s 14-year-old niece was asked by her teacher what she wanted to be when she finished school. The teacher asked her to think hard about it and then get back to him with an answer. She didn’t know what to say to her teacher. A friend, on hearing the girl’s predicament, said: ‘Tell your teacher that, perhaps, the thing you want to be when you leave school hasn’t been invented yet.” 0 likes
