Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Fortgang, a personal career coach, offers timely tips for executives interested in taking charge of their career and becoming responsible for their own choices. Rather than focusing on writing a r sum , dressing for success, or improving interviewing skills, typical career guidance topics, Fortgang instead deals with self-discipline, identifying obstacles to reaching one's goals, leaping out of a mid-career rut, and thinking big. Eleven obstacles to success are examined with plans to conquer each, brought to life by motivational tales of Fortgang-coached clients who have "taken themselves to the top." For "crispy critters," those suffering from burnout, her advice on kicking the reliance on adrenaline is the primary new concept in this selection among this heavily saturated genre. The author's advice requires a significant degree of self-discipline to follow, but the audiobook, read by Fortgang, will be a less expensive investment than her personal per session fees. Her sensitive approach conveys genuine concern with bringing out the best in people and may result in a broader emotional appeal to the target audience than Thomas Leonard's The Portable Coach, or Anthony Robbins's Unlimited Power. Recommended only for larger public libraries that may still be weak in this genre.--Dale Farris, Groves, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
