Hirsch is the founder of a career and psychological counseling company in Chicago and a senior lecturer at Northwestern University. In this second edition of her book, she writes that to be deeply fulfilled through their jobs, workers must integrate their financial needs and goals with their spiritual desires. Spirituality in this sense refers to "those animating life principles that enable you to feel most completely alive." Part 1 introduces a number of psychological challenges that need to be addressed and resolved, including the need to create a personal life agenda and timetable. Part 2 discusses some of the difficult organizational realities that have evolved over the last decade, including the loss of job security. Part 3 explores alternative work styles and schedules to increase autonomy and enhance the quality of life. There are chapters on midlife career transitions, achieving career security, business ethics, quitting a job, balancing work and personal life, and starting a business. George Cohen

As an IT professional who have been involved in corporate world for more than 8 years and a survivor of one merge, one company shut down and one acquisition: while reading this book I either confirmed my hard way gained experience or discovered new concepts which made me stronger player. As a result, That made me think the writer knows the game very well...
Almost everyone of us, know or at least feel that the rules of the business has been changing at light speed. And we have one common mission: survive, or better improve and catch better opportunities. If you want to know how this would be possible: read this book and get the mentality to be a winner.
I wish Arlene had lived nearby, so that she could be my consultant whom I could ask my career related questions. It doesnt seem possible but her book would be my reference all over my professional life. I also like to note that the content of the book does not only be limited with business life but also in life general. (Well, to my concern these two are not seperate).
Believe me it is worth to try...
