“If you’re sick of constantly fighting the Monday blues, this book is for you . . . [Acuff’s] career advice is solid . . . By the end, most will have a new outlook on their role in the workplace. They will be ready to take on the day with nothing but an adjusted attitude and a ton of grit.”
Associated Press

“You have the power to give yourself a fresh start. Jon Acuff shows you how.”
SOPHIA AMORUSO, author of #GIRLBOSS


“As Abraham Lincoln once said, being forced into work you don’t love is like paying to upgrade your cell phone to the latest model: no one should have to do that! Fortunately, you don’t need to do at least one of these things anymore. Take it from me and from Honest Abe: Jon’s book can get you unstuck."
CHRIS GUILLEBEAU, author of The Happiness of Pursuit and The $100 Startup


Do Over is an energetic, user-friendly guide to navigating the jumps, bumps, and ceilings that we all face in our careers.”
ADAM GRANT, author of Give and Take


Do Over is funny, insightful, and well-written. Three reasons I resent Jon Acuff.”
JIM GAFFIGAN, comedian and author of Food: A Love Story


“Honest, funny, helpful, fresh: there’s a long list of words to describe the wisdom you’ll find in Do Over. I dare you to read the first few pages of this book. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to stop. I have ordered a copy for every member of my team.”
MICHAEL HYATT, author of Platform


“Big dreams often start with big books. Do Over is one of them. The impact this book is going to have on the careers and lives of people across the world is going to be really fun to watch!”
ANDY ANDREWS, author of The Noticer and The Traveler’s Gift


“Jon Acuff serves up heaping portions of sage advice with a healthy side of selfdeprecating humor. As an entrepreneur and business owner, I found myself nodding, laughing, and getting my toes stepped all over in a good way throughout these pages.”
CRYSTAL PAINE, founder of MoneySavingMom.com and author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode


“This is the best career book ever written. I’m not even sure what book comes in second. This is practical, human, touching, urgent, vulnerable, universal, actionable truth, all in a well-written, handy package. Go!”
SETH GODIN, author of What to Do When It’s Your Turn

You ever come back from a vacation and find yourself in an instant state of fear, uncertainty or you just didn't care anymore about the job you were doing for any number of reasons from the people you work for/with to the role you play in the organization? It happens to everyone and Jon Acuff addresses a great concept, the "Do Over."

I remember playing games as a kid, if you messed up you would always call out "I want a do over!" and get to take another chance.

This book isn't about quitting your job, it's not about starting a new one as Jon points out he has books on those topics already. What this book attempts to be is a playbook telling you the things you need to know. It gives you tools to use to figure out what you need to know and do. For example, throughout the book note-cards are a popular go-to tool that Jon asks you to pull out and use. He coaches you through the process explaining in the text that he knows it will be a challenge because you may not know what you want to do, but he asks for trusts.

Jon really offers great advice on restarting your career and making sure you are in a great place when you do so. It may be tempting to restart your career and burn bridges on the way out of your old but Jon explains why that isn't a good thing and what to do if you already have burned some bridges.

This is an all around practical book that offers good advice and exercises to make sure you are where you need to be. I would recommend it for anyone that has been in the same position or business for multiple years and needs that little push of motivation. Even for a new employee this is a great book to keep your mind focused and start you off on the right track but it is really designed for those of us that need the extra push and help to move us on our way and restart our careers.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Whether you're a blue collar worker, white collar worker, ministry leader, or blogger, Jon Acuff's "Do Over" book is an essential handbook for any career! From the time I first started reading the book it was stuck in my hand and I did not want to put it down. Immediately I started telling family members and friends to read the book. The concepts are simple to implement- yet full of life-long skills.

In my print copy of the #DoOver book I've highlighted 90% of the book with marks such as "try this," or "do now" and "quote that." Seriously great book!

Acuff's writing style is entertaining and fun to read. This is not a boring career book with dry concepts. His fresh approach includes ideas such as:

>> Master the Invisible Skills
>> Never Become a Dinosaur
>> Grab the Right Hammer for Your Career Ceiling

Hidden behind years of humor and sarcasm is a brilliant mind with equally brilliant concepts. He's authentic, bold, humble and confident as Acuff shares his testimony on intentional career building. I could read this book over and over again (and probably will) and never get bored with it. Kudos to the writer and publisher for a book worthy of the bestsellers list!

Thankfully I listened to this book on CD. I cannot imagine being able to get through the book without hearing Jon's intonation and pitch, so that I could get his style of humor and to focus on the important points he makes in the book. On a critical note, this book could have been waaaaaaaaaaay shorter. Honestly, after a couple of weeks, I can tell you that I only remember 2 or 3 takeaways, and that's about it. I purchased the book after another popular blogger recommended it. One thing I am learning is that this core group of about 10 -15 writers just plug each other's books regardless of how good they really are. I will be very cautious going forward about making any purchases based on a raving review like this one from Jon's website: "I dare you to read the first few pages of this book. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to stop." The truth is I continued to read (actually to listen on CD) because I wanted to get my money's worth! But after about the first 25%, it was not something I did because I wasn't able to stop. This is not a page turner type of book, by any means. For me, I kept reading because I thought there must be some groundbreaking concept yet to come...I mean, after all, when Jon's website includes a review that says this: "Jon Acuff has redefined the entire category of career books" you expect great things. Unfortunately, I didn't find that to be true.

This is being nit-picky, but if I'm being perfectly honest, I also found the "Career Savings Account" concept and the mathematical formula Jon tried to use to explain a non-mathematical concept to be trite. I hope Jon continues to write, but I would encourage him to not try to develop his message like this ever again. We don't talk to each other like this in real life.

I bought Do Over as a result of John Acuff's email marketing campaign. He was probably doing it right. My career has pretty much been the subject of his book. I outgrow and get bored of jobs, I've been fired, and I've been stuck.

This book didn't tell me anything I didn't already know.

Acuff writes about what he calls the "Career Savings Account". It's contacts plus skill plus character times hustle. He painstakingly write about each of the sections.

I often complain about books written by pastors. Acuff is a pastor's son, so it fits. He continues to ramble on with stories, anecdotes, and jokes long after his point has been made and accepted. It seems like this could have been a very efficient book in 30-50 pages.

That's not to say the book lacks value. I wholeheartedly agree with his viewpoints, especially about skill and character and how you must develop them to get along and ahead in your career. I'm sure the book will be useful to many people. It's simply written in a style that doesn't agree with me very well. It takes time to read a book and when it seems like the author is rambling on to make an arbitrary page count, I get annoyed. Acuff seems very likable. He'd probably be fun to get together with.

One last point is about his stories. I sometimes enjoy stories and learn very well from them. To this day, I can tell you what "Voltage Standing Wave Ratio" is because an instructor accompanied that lesson with a story about how a seal broke between a cooling system and a waveguide and water started shooting out of the RADAR. Acuff's stories, especially in the first part of the book, seem like he's holding back. He starts to share a story, but doesn't give enough details for me to decide if I care or not. Later in the book he wraps some of them up to a point, but not all the way. Maybe it's just how he structured the book.
