it was ok, i didn't actually completely finish it, the exercises were actually rather frustrating. you couldn't really keep going if you didn't think of like 3 words to describe yourself or what you're good at or what you wanted.........just seemed sort of elementary and nothing that you can't figure out for yourself. i was kind of disappointed and thus never finished it. a better book i can recommend is one i'm currently reading by barbara winter called making a living without a job. see my rev ...more
I really liked this book. It's an excellent book to read if you're not sure how to change careers or what you want to do next. The nine steps were very easy to follow. I liked being led me step-by-step in a straightforward manner to figure out what I like and dislike about my current job, skills I enjoy using, and how I should approach changing careers. I wrote directly in the book on the lines provided. I feel more confident and prepared to change careers after reading this book.
Despite the somewhat tacky title, a re-read of this book was most helpful with some suggestions on how to focus my job search and best present my qualifications, based on the person I want to be in the work world, and where I want to be that person...really opened my eyes to some options I had not considered. Also, has enough humor built in to not be boring.

Recommends it for: Anyone looking to find a meaningful career
A terrific book for anyone looking to understand what the next step is in their career, young or seasoned. Be prepared to work, since this is the only way to truly knowing what lies in your heart and on your path. I haven't come across a better career book in my time.
