Test-Drive Your Dream Job is one of the most enjoyable business how-to books I've read. Brian Kurth relates his personal experiences of creating his own dream job (creating Vocation Vacations) and is honest about the pitfalls such a change can take. Certainly Kurth would probably love to get new clients from his book but advertising doesn't seem to be the main point behind the book. Kurth's enthusiasm is for helping people find the perfect job no matter where one is in life or career.

I think because of where I'm at in my current career situation, this book was extremely helpful to me. It really got me jazzed up about pursuing a career that I'm passionate about, rather than just continuing to do work that I dislike and don't find fulfilling.

Really has me thinking about what my "dream" job would be...
