C'è qualche buona intuizione. Però l'autore avrebbe potuto essere più conciso. Il libro richiede un notevole impegno, ma è necessario per capire cosa da fare con la tua vita. Nel complesso, è stato utile.

Good book better for someone in high school. Had good examples but could be a bit long winded in some areas.

This book is a MUST-READ for any young adults transiting from school to the real world.

The book consists of comprehensive guide and useful information for different career aspects for different personalities (which there are exercises available in the book).

This is a terrific book aimed at students right out of school trying to determine their career path. Lore and Boldt (Zen and the Art of Making a Living) are two of the best career advisor authors I've read. This book includes very useful quizzes as well as a good job classification system to help readers get a wide view of all the career possibilities. And he links the two together: the results from the quizzes to the career options.

Definitely gave me a comprehensive plan for exploring my future career and seeing what might fit with my personality, skills and lifestyle. There are several parts I'm going to have to read over again, or give more time to, but I think it was a good jumping-off point. Lots to think about after reading this one.

This was a fun read for me.

I am currently in college and trying to figure out what I can do in my life after graduation. A lot of the information in this book I have already seen.

It was helpful for it to be organized the way it is in this book- To make things clearer!

Es un buen punto de partida para el autoconocimiento y para descubrir cuales son nuestros talentos y la mejor forma en que podemos usarlos. Brinda un panorama bastante amplio para que el lector escoja hacia donde quiere dirigir su vida.

Better for younger people who are still in college. But a lot of good points and exercises to help you become more aware of your career and life goals.
