I quite like this book. It's a good career guide for folks who don't fit the mold, and who enjoy reading about career theory from an author who speaks from personal and professional perspectives. I recommend it often to career changers and those who have to blaze their own trail in the work world.

This book is out of date, not very well written, and provides less information than a simple google search. It should be removed from the collection.
