Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A psychologist, career coach, and Rutgers University professor of Human Resource Management, Caliguiri uses her significant practical wisdom to turn the pie-in-the-sky notion of "doing what you love" into an achievable lifestyle. Caligiuri makes a convincing case that, as employers no long show any long-term loyalty to their employees, it's up to workers to take control of their own destiny. Thus she provides a progressive plan of attack focusing on empowerment and fulfillment-chapters range from "Discover What Really Motivates You" to "Integrate Your Career with Your Life Priorities"-with helpful questionnaires, exercises, and case studies of people whose multiple career "acts" have given them happiness as well as financial freedom (such as a nurse of 30 years who turned her love of sewing into a paying side business, or Caligiuri herself, whose career has included four acts). Though "do what you love" may seem like a luxurious conceit in a time of economic recession, Caligiuri provides a cumulative, practical plan for leveraging skills, talents, and interests to add income and value to life.
