Top Customer Reviews
I am really impressed by certain things discussed in the book. One of them was formula, "Event + response = outcome" which explains events are not in our control but we can control how we respond to those events. One more interesting thing that I learned is Passion > vision > risk > goal > execute. This explains the evolution process or the steps to convert your passion as your career. The other useful things that were discussed in this book are various inspirational quotes and reference to many relative personality/career development books.
I would summarize this book as a pocket dictionary to organize you as company of one.
Everyone should read this book.
I highly recommend the book. If nothing else, you will gain a different perspective on building a career, which I think will be very helpful with the condition of the job market today.
