Kirk Snyder talks a lot about real life in this book and rightly so when addressing all of the professional challenges we face as gay people. Many self-help books don¿t talk about real life, but this book is honestly all about real life. I found the words and experiences of so many people in the book to be true for my own life. Bravo for a book that finally talks honestly about how to get from A to Z at work for gay people with pride and dignity.

This is my new career bible! Kirk Snyder has written the definitive book for the gay community to actually go ¿out¿ there and get their piece of the pie! I found all of the real-life career stories that are presented all through the book (many from people who I found share a great deal in common with my own experiences as a gay person trying to get ahead at work) almost give the book the feel of a really good novel. But then Snyder transforms all of these experiences into a terrific how-to career book with his 7 Points of Success. It¿s a cross between Po Bronson¿s ¿What Should I Do With My Life¿ and Dr. Phil--but just for the ¿lavender¿ community! A lot of great exercises too all the way through that really addressed issues not dealt with in other career books but that are so important for the gay community.
