I am a mid-career professional and stumbled on this book at Amazon. I truly wish that I had read this book when I started out my career. I can see some of the mistakes that I have made and the warnings for such errors have been so well called out in the book. I particularly liked the concept of the C-zone and the 30-30-30-10 model which really zeros in on the must-do's for career growth.
The book also provides the reader with insights into cultivating some 'street smarts'.. something you will never learn from an MBA degree. It delves into some grey areas and 'soft' skills that can drive a person's career growth and success. This book has the potential to transform the reader into a 'shrewder' and smarter player in the corporate world and truly broadens the view and 'opens' the eyes of the reader to looking at the bigger picture.
The advice in the book is solid if the reader's goals align with the destination of The Career Journey. If what you're looking for is career success-defined by a higher position in some form of business and in an organization you like-Iyer's plan is as good as any. He offers personal experiences, case studies, and advice from other writers to show how scenarios can play out and what can be gained by making some important career moves and decisions. Iyer discusses the importance of finding the job that fits what you're good at and like to do, personal branding and perception, continued education, and the fundamentals of how businesses work. By laying out the fundamentals, he gives the readers a chance to create a strategy to get where they want to be.
