With Manpower, Inc., the temporary agency, the nation's largest private employer and one-quarter to one-third of American workers operating as "free agents," this author offers analysis of this "new economy" and advice on how to succeed in it. Free to Succeed is a self-help book. Reinhold is director of Smith College's career and executive development center and Monster.com's online career coach. Even in part 1, which describes the "new economy," her book is full of charts and checklists. Part 2 spells out the "Seven Steps to Free Agency" through 22 "stories" with their own charts and bulleted lists. Part 3 supplies helpful resources (books, journals, Web sites) and offers 25 pages of "Exercises to Get You Moving." Reinhold's "busy" style may turn off some readers, but even the most jaded will discover valuable factoids and approaches here. Glossary and bibliography appended. Mary Carroll

This book gives some good exercises to give the reader a clear idea of his or her free agent strenghts and weakenesses. Some people have strong imaginations but just lack the nerve. Others may be gamblers with the lack of a strong purpose. To sum it up, this book is a good tool for self evaluation.
The glossary is pretty good and some good resources for web surfers. Some pretty good case studies even if some of them are a bit too repetitive. Its certainly worth a read.
I truly enjoyed and appreciated this book. Even though I may not ultimately become a free agent, I loved the way she talked about designing your life according to your own needs and wants. She makes soul searching a little easier with some innovative and creative questions and exercises. I've been recommending this book to many of my friends who are beginning to debate about all their choices.
I look forward to more thoughts and books from her!
Dr. Reinhold, in all her wisdom and with a wonderful sense of humor, gives you the courage and shows you the way to do just that. If you can dream it, you can do it. Let Dr. Reinhold help you turn your daydreams and your passions into a profession. A must read for anyone interested in becoming an independent agent in today's economy.
