About the Author
Marc Miller’s career journey included 22 years at IBM, several thriving tech startups, a painful stint as a high school teacher, a gig raising funds for the Jewish Community Association of Austin and a near fatal bicycle accident that changed his perspective forever. Thirty years of wandering the proverbial career desert, often repeating the same mistakes over and over, taught him his most crucial lesson: Most people don’t really know what makes them happy at their core, what fulfills them. They pursue money, status, a skill set, all of which provide some level of satisfaction, but not contentment. They wind up feeling frustrated and trapped. Others have figured out what they need, but don’t know how to chart a course to get there. An active member of the Launch Pad Job Club, Marc found himself counseling friends and associates on their career journeys and finally realized he’d found his vocation. He would use his extensive training experience to help others—especially Baby Boomers—find careers that they could grow into for the decades that lie ahead. Marc is passionate about his work and the clients he serves. He’s taught in more than 35 countries and helped clients from many industries.

For those of us considering 'what to do next', the book has given me the incentive to explore myself further and I will likely follow up by contacting the author for further direction, as he suggests is possible.
His methods address both the practical and the psychological aspects of job hunting. If you follow the steps in this guide, you will get satisfying results. Examples from Miller’s client base and his sense of humor make this valuable guide eminently readable.
The only flaws I found were a few grammatical and formatting issues, nothing serious.
