I have no idea whether this is a good book or not.

All I can say is most of the reviews here seem to be written in the same style, probably by the same person, and around the same dates.

The author is extremely motivational. His tactics seem to relate well no matter how much previous work experience you have or lack. Further, his plan is well thought out, easy to understand, and clearly broken down into categories that seem surmountable. His plan did not scare me - it seemed like a path I could actually follow and not a system that was unrealistic or too time consuming to lead to a profitable result. Joe Carroll's book gave me a very positive outlook on job searching that is hard to stay focused on in the midst of this economic downturn we are faced with. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a little guidance in their quest to find what makes them truly happy and a reminder that a positive attitude is worth so much more than we sometimes give it credit for.

I could not get past the introduction without screaming "Yes!" I needed this book in 2009 while I was a less than stellar graduate student in the life sciences. I had been poorly mentored by a grad student. The principal researcher who was frustrated with my lack of progress "diagnosed" me with a learning disorder. I started to realize that I may not be living up to my potential in that particular situation, and this book relates to this idea. He repeats some other things which I think is good because it helps you to focus on how to bring everything he is saying together. As you get into the chapters, all the advice is practical such as staying healthy, using a phone to job hunt (imagine that!), and many other great tips. One thing that could be viewed as a negative by some is that the author makes it known he is a Christian and does talk about it throughout the book. It does not offend me and I hope that it doesn't overshadow the practical information that he provides. Also, for those of use just coming into the job market, making connections is definitely going to be harder. Overall, the book maintains a very positive tone from beginning to end, something that gets lost when the search for a job seems insurmountable. I would highly recommend this book for if you are looking for a job.

Go for it! I would recommend this book to anyone interested in finding a job fast. The book is packed with very specific action steps. I never really thought about connecting my passions, talents and purpose with a job, but what the author has to say makes a lot of sense. My only regret is not having the opportunity to read it sooner.
I liked the stuff on page 45 about, "Finding jobs means dialing for jobs."

Book is quite interesting, reminding the reader that looking for a job IS a full time job itself! Some of the ideas only apply to executives or professionals, not to administrative or general staff positions that lots more people actually have.
