Format: Paperback
Sadly this is yet another collection of superficial tripe from this consistently lightweight columnist. The coach analogy has worn itself thin (at least a dozen career writers claim to be America's career coach -- and some of them actually offer real substance in their books and columns). The little boxes with "keen" advice are embarrasing. It feels like Ms. Kleiman is writing for the lowest common denominator or thinks her readers are just plain dumb. I guess the underlying problem with this book is that is doesn't say anything that hasn't been said before, usually better, in other career books and it does not respect the intelligence of its potential readers.
