Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Self-management is rapidly becoming the hottest topic for the 1990s, especially as the massive horde of baby boomers mature and experience career frustration. Hollander joins this already saturated field with an interesting and unique twist. She explains the matrix of work preference and competence--the unfortunate "doom" state (when one's career no longer appeals or challenges)--and provides helpful hints on how to identify your skills and talents that may prepare you for your "capstone" (ideal) career. Numerous checklists, step-by-step guides, and discussion of organizational culture/politics help make this more than another superficial gloss-over of well-known principles. Less complex than Richard Bolles's What Color Is Your Parachute? ( LJ 6/1/73) but more pragmatic than Marsha Sinetar's Do What You Love, the Money Will Follow ( LJ 5/1/87), this is recommended for collections weak in this area.

Format: Hardcover
Reading DOOM LOOP was like having a light bulb switched on. I have often seen and been puzzled by executives and professionals seemingly at the top of their game who are absolutely miserable and unhappy with their work. DOOM LOOP provides amazing insight into why career success often leads directly to career stagnation, burn out, and despair. It also gives practical advice on how to escape the DOOM LOOP and re-energize stalled careers. I've been recommending it to all my friends and clients and talking about it to everyone else.

The common problems of getting the right job and then having it beome the wrong job are detailed in this exciting book. It is a common experience for most professionals. The book is worth reading and studying as a career guide.

While the idea is solid (but not original) - the author makes complicated something that is quite simple. A "don't buy" in my estimation. This could have been described in much simpler terms - the Doom Loop is helpful, but this book doesn't get it.

I was disappointed that I bought this book. It's a classic example of someone setting themselves up as a so-called "consultant" when they really have little practical expertise. The information is elemental enough that I would think anyone with a college education could figure it out for themselves without reading this book.
