Daniel Lakstins is not one of those authors. In fact, his book "30 Careers Before 30: Finding Your Dream Job Faster Than I Did" is quite the opposite. Lakstins gives actual information that will help real people find worthwhile jobs by choosing appropriate career paths. The information in his book is not necessarily unique, but the presentation is. He gives clear examples of how an individual should determine his or her ultimate goal in employment.
Do you switch jobs every other day, looking for your perfect fit? Do you have problems at your current job, but you're not sure how to get out? Do you eventually want to start your own business, but are unsure where to start? Lakstins has answers to all of these questions, but he doesn't bore the reader with drawn-out explanations. His real-life examples are concise, and his advice in nearly every situation is spot on.
If you are easily bored with self-help career/business books, but you are still looking for answers regarding a career path, this might be one to check out. It's a fast read, primarily because there's not a lot of fluff. My only suggestion about "30 Careers" would be including some research from other business-related material. Then again, if the other material is ridiculously watered down, maybe leaving it out is the best recipe for success.
It's easy to get distracted in a world that offers so many options, but this book helps you stay on topic. A short read, (coming in at only 80 pages,) Lakstins gives you the information you need as concisely as possible so you can get done reading and get down to the important work of finding the job that is perfect for you.
This book is a quick read, but Lakstins doesn't scrimp on the necessary details: From educating yourself properly, to determining where you would be happiest, to succeeding once you've found your dream job, with this short manual you will be completely prepared for success!
