This book is worth the read but the format of the book is cluttered and ultimately laborious.

The author interviewed real people who currently hold multiple careers. Unfortunately, she opts to jump from person to person and then close each segment or chapter with a two or three line summary. Throughout the book, she jumps back and forth between different people, sometimes returning to highlight a different perspective of a person she already presented, making the book far more complicated than it needs to be.

In taking this approach, the author ultimately spends more time praising the people she interviewed rather than providing actual guidance or tips to the readers who may be trying to break into multiple careers. The book would have been significantly stronger and far more helpful if the author had spent more time (and lines!) developing tips and tools for the reader and less time telling the life stories of the people she interviewed.

The bottom line is: this book is a good read for those who need to hear that having multiple careers is possible; the book is not, however, a practical or useful tool that I had hoped it would be.
