This review is from: So Good They Can't Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love (Hardcover)
I bought this book 15 minutes after reading about it on LinkedIn. I wish it had been written 20 years ago! I am one of those that got caught up in the "chase your passion" mentality. So much so that I am now a "generalist" in my field, which is making finding a job difficult. Had I paid my dues and focused on a specific skill rather than daydreaming of all the possibilities, I would have developed the career capital (see book) needed to make me stand out. I recommend the book to anyone starting a career or thinking about changing theirs.
