There's probably no one who wouldn't find this book helpful, no matter their career or job status. Not everyone will go cover-to-cover, but there are sections of benefit to us all. The book takes first things first, focusing on self-knowledge as a foundation for finding and creating the "perfect career". It offers a rich array of tools to help in the quest, and points to a wealth of resources to help carry the search further. Carew has performed the service of organizing and amplifying the full range of questions whose answers provide the backdrop to any successful career and manages to not be the least superficial despite the wide angle through which "career" is examined.

This book can be extremely useful to anyone from high school age to senior citizen. Especially helpful to me were the boxed Insider Tips and the Least You Need to Know bullets at the end of each chapter. As a retired teacher I intend to use all the information I've gathered to launch my next career.

I am a consultant and career coach and am always looking for tools that will benefit my clients. This book takes the reader through a process of discovering themselves. The excercises and self-assessments are extremely helpful. The book helps you to understand what you really want out of life and out of your career so that you can make the best decisions for yourself. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is in career transition, anyone contemplating a career change, or to anyone who works with people who are in career transition.

Whether the reader is a student just beginning to contemplate possible careers, or someone stuck in a job rut and wondering "is that all there is?" this practical guide will provide encouragement, insight, and specifc steps to identifying a truly satisfying career. Having worked as a career counselor and taught career planning at UC, Berkeley, I welcome this new, user-friendly volume that engages the reader not just in career research, but in the self-research that is critcal to identifying one's calling vs. merely settling for a job. The book is filled with hands-on exercises, helpful hints, and specicfic recommendations to sustain one through the process of identifying the career of his or her dreams. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants work to be more than a four-letter word!
