    Ahmad

    Not as what I expected. Even though the book containes nice advises, it can be summeriesed in 50 pages maximum. Stories are repeated with different names. Ideas are not that original and attractive. The style of writing is highly affected by the acadimic background of the author. It's not that friendly and touching. In conclusion, it's not the "inspiraional" book you want to change your life. Not recommended.

    A roadmap that outlines real steps to take to figure out how to have a "career" that you enjoy and excel in being a productive well rounded member of society. Simple, but good advice on all areas of career development and having a "life" and not a "job" - not just about finding something you like to do, but also how to continue your development, work towards security (professionally and financially), as well as improve your well-being (for work AND life).

Plus - she talks about the importance of mindfulness! I couldn't not approve of this book. I also enjoyed the realistic approach, in that you have to do the work. You have to actually think through the exercises and use them in order to take your career into your own hands and own it. So, despite its simplicity, this is not something to just read and forget in a few hours - to get the full benefit you need to actually work at the exercises and steps. Like anything in life that is worth doing it may be simple, but it's not easy.

    Some of the best advice that I've heard about career planning Dr. Paula gives a practical step by step as to how to get your ideal career and add multiple careers on it so that you are always taken care of.

    Awful read. Repetitive and silly. Huge waste of time.

    If this book hadn't been free on amazon I would have been very dissapointed. I found the information basic, the exercises haphazard and the only part helpful the last page where it focuses on the employer getting to know the employee and realised that no company I had worked for (or probably will work for) would ever have any intrest in this information.

    The book itself was not all that informative for me at this stage, however, it did provide a good number of websites and resources which might be useful. In addition, it does provide some good exampled and stories on what might be interesting to think about in the future.

    Well I made attempts to read and finish this book. I really tried to enjoy the book, but just didn't. I was a little disappointed, maybe I was expecting something else and just didn't enjoy the writing.

    Not what I expected: this book isn't about how to determine what your ideal career is, but rather about turning hobbies or other skills into sources of revenue - for fulfillment, stability, or future full time careers. Not what I was hoping to read but there were a couple interesting suggestions.

    I like this book. Actually, this was the book that pushed me to follow my dream job. The book provides strategies from getting ready to create a career, to surviving while in between job. So it's not a yabba-yabba motivating kind of book.

    This book was ok. It provided a good background to why people don't find that one dream job and strategies to make all your skills work for you so work itself will be more fulfilling.

    While there is some good advice in this short book, it is filled with poor examples and the points are repeated several times. Lacks real content.

    Interesting perspective. Good points about the "new" economy that we and our youth are entering...
