Top Customer Reviews
Want to change careers or have some backup plans in case something current falls through? The 9-to-5 Cure will show you how to do it! This isn't the same ol' same ol' where an author preaches words of comfort or inspiration. Instead, Kristin Cardinale takes you by the hand and shows you exactly how to create a working plan for your life that makes you feel rejuvenated rather than drained to the core. Who knew that working could be so fulfilling and actually exhilarating? Not to mention stable! I urge you to buy and read The 9-to-5 cure today!
The author's ideas are useful, so if you are looking for some inspiration to step out and create your own destiny, you may find some value here. If you want to find a label for your patchwork career, Dr. Cardinale offers those, too.
Here is my problem with this book: the author made no effort to profile other people. She has a terminal degree and has had success selling her services as she so thoroughly describes. What about the other 99.5% of us who don't have the big diploma on the wall? Her book would be more valuable had she made the effort to profile others with different - and less advanced - credentials.
I will be honest. I gave up after my Kindle told me that I was about 2/3 through. Maybe what I am looking for comes later on, but I doubt it. Less about the author and a more compelling package of research with greater diversity of experiences would have made this a more valuable and credible resource and would have given a better investment on the time invested.
