This is a most helpful book.  It is written well - it is short and a quick read.  While the concept of the Doom Loop seems simple, there is a lot under the surface, and the author covers it clearly.  It is a MUST BUY!

Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite The Doom Loop! by Charles Cranston Jett is nothing but ‘Straight Talk about Job Frustration, Boredom, Career Crises and Tactical Career Decisions from the Doom Loop Creator.’ It examines one's success in life based on certain easily identifiable parameters, which are more applicable in the professional sphere. Using one's personal feelings about a job, “like/don’t like”, and the general assessment of one's performance, “good at/not good at”, the author has put forward a decision mosaic to help people in selecting and progressing in one's profession. Intended as a tactical career management tool, as the author reminds the reader, it can help one in avoiding dumb career decisions and act as a tool to enable one to recognize an opportunity to grow and learn, consistent with one's career management strategy.  The Doom Loop! by Charles Cranston Jett is a practical guide for management students, a helpful tool in selecting their careers. In a field where one's contribution to output is of paramount importance, selecting an appropriate career in the beginning itself, to ensure success in life, cannot be overemphasized. This intuitive tool will greatly lessen the difficulties of choosing a suitable line of work. Using an analysis similar to a mathematical equation of two variables - what he or she is “good at” (performance) and whether he or she “likes” (preference) it - the whole task of job suitability and one's preferences is reduced to a simple plot. A useful guide and a ready tool, this book has added one more dimension to one of the most interesting and theory-intensive areas of human resources and management.

Lots of common sense knowledge in a relatively small book.  Tired of wading through monster "self help" books.  For anyone with a career, this book provides great insight of where you might be and where you might, or might not want to go.

How complicated it appears to solve the tactical issues that involve finding a satisfying and rewarding business career. No longer should that be the case, with a book entitle THE DOOM LOOP by Charles Cranston Jett that integrates the business and psychological process in a clear and succinct manner.
