Format: Paperback
John Lees is a leading authority in career planning in the UK and here brings his experience to bear in a coherent book on career change. Admittedly standing on the shoulders of Dick Bolles's What Color is My Parachute? and other pioneers of the bottom-up approach, he introduces his own useful concepts (e.g. "house of knowledge", "field generator") in a well presented and easy-to-read book.
