The only drawback that I found in this book may be particular to me; basically, I found the author overly optimistic about how everyone should find work that they love. I think that cleaning toilets is a necessary job that someone has to do, but I strongly doubt that someone cleaning toilets will get up in the morning, be passionate about clean flushes, and call themselves a 'sanitation engineer.' I think that janitorial work is fine, honorable work (I've been a janitor myself), but I'm not as certain as the author is about people discovering that mining, cave diving, janitorial work, or other dangerous occupations are people's dream jobs that they love. Perhaps I am wrong and this is just what you think or need; in that case, enjoy the book.
Even if you agree with my gripe, the book is great to have and will serve you well.
If you are ready and willing to take a look at yourself and are willing to look at job/work from different angles, then it is time to get this book.
With Dan's 48 Day instructions, I was able to lay out the type of job/work that I was seeking. I began this process in early July 2013 and landed a dream job by early December 2013.
I wish I could invite Dan Miller to dinner. I appreciate his work and I cannot thank him enough.
Recommendation: Good book if you are either a first time job seeker or it has been a long time since you've had to find a job. However, if your intent is to understand how to first assess and then apply your transferable/marketable skills so you can switch careers in order to gain more enjoyment from your working life, I felt this book fell disappointingly short.
