The author breaks it all down into a manageable, easy, entertaining read with real-world case studies and fun self-assessment tools. This book was an eye-opening experience. Highly recommend.
I couldn't recommend this book more, it personally helped me find a job that I would never think of my dream job but now understand it's exactly what I needed at this point in my life. I plan to read again when I feel the need to shift my career and have already purchased for my family and friends.
Another great idea? Record yourself in a stressful situation. Actually record yourself with your phone. Then you can listen to it later and realize that you really sounded pretty OK - not the total disaster that you had imagined.
These are really useful, concrete, positive methods of changing your life by finding the job that's just right for you.
The book is wide ranging and includes sections such as finding your purpose, learning new skills, and applying for jobs. I particularly liked the section on networking which includes chapters such as "map a network" and "reconnect with five mentors from your past". Helpful tips in today's world when word-of-mouth and personal connections are a far more effective way to land a job than the bygone era when we sent resumes blindly into the night. The chapters are short and sweet (just a few pages each) with bite-sized exercises to nudge one towards catalyzing action.
In addition to the print copy, I bought the audiobook through Audible and liked the narration style.
