Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is a reflective book for the currently employed who are dissatisfied with their work. Craddock's "Authentic Career Process" comprises four stages (awareness, emotional ownership, interaction, and integration) and seeks to focus on our "authentic self" vs. the less-than-authentic person we often are on the job. According to the introduction, "Each stage is designed to help achieve a series of goals that will lead to authentic success"-which Craddock defines as doing work that truly reflects our personal values instead of those imposed on us. A former manager of a multibillion-dollar portfolio who has been featured on CNBC and NPR, Craddock subtly shifts emphases from personal values and goals in the first stage to unifying personal needs and altruistic desires in subsequent stages. The exercises seem to have depth and would probably enhance self-awareness in the spheres Craddock emphasizes (such as money, priorities, family, and emotions). Recommended for public libraries having active readership in career development. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
