This is a slim, easy to read volume that has some useful pointers for people who are trying to balance more than one job or project at a time in their lives. For me, the most helpful aspect of the book was to discover that the mishmash of paid, voluntary and hobby projects that make up my life has a name - a 'portfolio lifestyle'.While Jani Rubery is writing for a Christian audience (she is a member of the Salvation Army in England), there are many tips that apply to anyone who wants to change or manage their work-life balance. The appendices on career planning and work values are especially useful.This sort of book can date quite quickly (it was published in 2001), but the underlying principles it addresses remain sound and relevant. There are some annoying typographical errors and the book needed better proof-reading, but these niggles aside it is a good starting point for evaluating your career and, for Christians, integrating church and secular work while growing further in your faith.
