5.0 out of 5 stars Actually very helpful!, 9 Jan. 2011
By 
This review is from: Screw Work, Let's Play: How to Do What You Love and Get Paid for it (Paperback)
I bought two books in this subject area, this one and "Making the big Leap". This is by far the better. Screw work lets play actually gives a lot of very helpful, practical tips. Its aimed at people who already have skills or passions and helps them to use and improve those skills step by step eventually ending up with a new self made career. The best part is it isn't a self help book, its a how too book. There is no confidence building rubbish, no hand holding or ego massaging. It simply shows new doors and ways to achieve your dream job. Filled with interesting examples and great little tips I found the whole book a great help.

I came across the title of this book in a magazine a number of months ago and have been debating whether or not to purchase it as it's not that easy 'to seperate the wheat from the chaff' in terms of what's good and what's not. Having read this straight talking review I have made the decision to go ahead and buy the book. Thanks to J.Read.

So this review convinced you to buy the book but you already knew the authors website which you helpfully give out.
That doesn't really make sense.
This type of thing is just an example of what I don't like in this book.
