Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mitchell (founder, Reinvention Inst.) lays out the ten "laws" of career reinvention, from creating a vision and forming a network of resources to speaking the language of your new career. Each law is accompanied by a profile story to illustrate the purpose of the law and demonstrate how it can be put to work. This book is made all the more useful by the inclusion of a companion workbook, which can be used either along with the book (exercises refer to certain sections of the laws) or separately after reading. A link to an e-version of the workbook will prevent library circulation problems. This self-guided tool lets readers immediately put the laws into action with their own career reinventions. A fine complement to other job search resources.—EN
