This book seems so dumbed-down to me that it is hard to believe that the same person wrote this book and the Forbes columns. Did an editor push Liz to change her style to appeal to a more general readership?
Here's the example (at about 10% in) that really made it painful for me to go on reading:
"Keith is in reinvention. He feels like he's on an 'emotional see-saw'. What did Keith mean when he said that he feels like he's on an emotional see-saw? He meant that his emotions go up and down."
To be clear: I highly recommend Liz's ideas and methods. If you aren't familiar with them, I recommend that you get familiar by reading her Forbes articles. I was hoping for a well-written book that would collect all of her ideas in one place; I'm not even a fussy reader, but I was disappointed by the level at which this book is written.
I hope that this book will go to a second edition as quickly as possible, and tighten up the writing. The world needs the book that this one should have been.
I would love to see a revised edition that tightened the writing and structured better. I also would love to know WHY the systems (ATS's, recruitment, etc) are broken and which specific companies have evolved in accordance to her advice. Not everything that is written is universally acknowledged as good advice.
In the end, I set the book down having learned something and I will follow through with several of the exercises, so it's worth the discounted price. Frankly though, the author's LinkedIn posts and columns online are faster reads of the same information.
It's an easy read and the price is great! If you are reading the reviews, you already know you need this book. Please do yourself and your soul a favor, get this book. It could be for now, it could be for later, but get it! It is SOOOO worth it! Good luck on your journey!
