5.0 out of 5 stars
A Career Coach review by Aristeidis A. Goneos, BSc, 21 Oct. 2013
This book promises "to help you towards having a happy and fulfilling work life", and it comfortably achieves doing just that, indeed covering all aspects of a very important issue through the entire spectrum of professional occupations. This is a brilliant book, very well written, finely structured, organized and complete, including enlightening study cases and helpful exercises.
For young people-high school, college or University graduates- it is sometimes hard to decide what they want to do with their lives, or rather what they wish to make of themselves. The book will guide younger readers through a revealing self-search, showing perception and prudence, elaborating on the importance of self-awareness, inspiring confidence and enthusiasm; it will demonstrate how you can turn a labyrinth of options to a plethora of life rewarding choices.
Unemployment, routine, a job going nowhere, a job that clashes with who you are, or who truly want to be, these are real life issues we all have encountered some time or other, as we spend the better part of our everyday lives working, or looking for a job. The way we chose to make a living has a serious impact on our lives, and this can sometimes be overwhelming, but here is where you find a strong helping hand: the book will set you off on a fascinating quest for job satisfaction and personal happiness, avoiding compromise or early defeat by the harsh particulars of the market environment.
The book is wonderfully balanced all the way through, sharp and to the point, concise and targeted, spiced up with a great sense of humour.
More than a" page turner", I am certain that this book will prove a value returner and a priceless companion many times over.
