    A Gem of Practical Wisdom

    This book is filled with practical advice, lots of inspiration, and winning tips. I loved the case studies, all the exercises, and the how to's - especially on how to develop a job search action plan and how to recession-proof your career. I will be recommending it to all my friends who are the throes of re-evaluating their careers or those who just know they want job more job satisfaction than what they have now!
