Whether initiated of your own free will or thrust upon you, change is something that visits us all. With change often comes fear of the unknown, doubt about our ability to adapt, and, inevitably, some form of resistance. Nevertheless, these obstacles can be overcome by following author Nicholas Andrew Depew's step-by-step advice on topics such as the following:
- Knowing when to say when
- Formulating an exit/transition strategy
- Overcoming resistance
- Seeing through the uncertainty
- Avoiding pitfalls
- Leaving a positive legacy
- Taking your experiences with you
These issues are particularly true for those who face transitions of a work-related nature. Whether you are looking for a new job, taking on a new position within your current organization, or beginning the evaluation process of fulfilling a personal dream, there are practical ways in which to carry out your specific transition without unprofessionally severing ties in the process.
Character in Transition: A Guide to Not Burning the Bridge will challenge you to approach the subject of change and the idea of transition from an uncommon point of view. It will ask you to question the norm and expected everyday standards while inviting you to strive for more out of life.

I think the headline pretty much says it. Too many 'self-help' books offer little more than the author going on and on about how they seem to know everything, and that their way of doing things is the 'only way' to achieve success. That's why I was really impressed with Character in Transition. You don't have to endure page after page of an author going on about themselves. The author just seems to want to genuinely help people who are thinking about leaving one job for a better one. And like the headline says, the information makes sense, is easy to follow, and is directly to the point. There is a little bit of repetion with a couple points, but it seems to be intentional, and it does make the point stronger and easier to remember. I look forward to reading any future books by Nicholas Andrew Depew.

This book will show you an easy to follow step-by-step process for leaving one job to strive for better things the right way.
