Career Development and Change : How to Love the Job You Do
Career Development and Change : How to Love the Job You Do
Price: £6.17

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Are Ready For Action This Book Is For You, 13 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book without any expectation of what it would be like. Having done so I have to say I was really impressed. Sarah does a great job of getting you to look at yourself, your beliefs and face up to some tough realities.

Throughout the book she sets out many questions, encouraging you to stop and take stock. Don't think however this book is just about self reflection. It is clear that the desire is to encourage people to get into action.

The case studies towards the end of the book provided some great insights from a range of different professions.

If you are not getting what you want from your work and are ready to do something about it, this book is for you.

This book contains some excellent tips and strategies. Some of them were new to me and others felt a bit dated. That is the only reason I did not give the book a five star rating.

Ian does a great job of explaining email marketing in a very engaging way. I particularly liked the way he illustrated the client persona.
Strongly recommend for anyone new to the topic or if not getting the results you want at present.

I saw Jim speak at a conference a few years ago. This book provides even more insight than would have been possible during a 60 minute keynote.

What he shares is a no nonsense and grounded assessment without pretending that it is easy. It is hugely refreshing and so different from a lot of other books.

The 10 rules are presented in a highly engaging and entertaining way. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is or aspires to be successful.

Sometimes when you come across a book that is based around research you worry that it might be really dry. This book does a great job of presenting the research in an engaging way.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Good Checklist, 27 July 2014

This book is billed as a handbook. While it had some good checklists and examples it felt a bit like an amalgamation of standard material rather than offering any real new ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Content But Heavy Going, 26 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend. Content wise I had no problem with the book. Clearly well researched. I personally found the writing style tough going and this greatly reduced my enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 4 July 2014

This is one of the best books I have read on presenting. The style of writing,stories and analysis meant that it was far more valuable than your average book. A must for your reading list if you want to be a more effective presenter.
