This, in my opinion, is the UK (slightly stiffer upper lip) version of Richard Nelson Bolles US bestseller "What Color is Your Parachute". This book is more compact, simpler and more acceptable to the shy or introverted. I am a careers adviser at a University and have been using The Art of Building Windmills in my group work and advice work because it makes some great and valuable points very simply and clearly. I would recommend either of these books I have mentioned to any serious job seekers, but the solution to your goals is not easy! It takes time and energy and determination, but these books will motivate you and give you all the help and encouragement you need. Good seeking!
