    This book is republished every year in order to be consistent with the current economy, job market trends, and technology. I purchased the 2016 version last year and only read half of it, and also purchased the 2017 version this year in order to ensure that I had the most up-to-date version. Don't waste your money! There isn't much change from last year's version.

    As for the book itself, I found that it was a very helpful overall book for job hunters overall in the job market looking to brand themselves and branch into a new field or find a new way to look at the job market and launch themselves into a career. I didn't find that it was much helpful for me in the career industry that I am in - marketing/advertising, ironically. Most of it was pretty redundant for me.
  • (4/5)
    A very positive approach to finding that next job and more importantly a new career.
  • (5/5)
    This book literally changed my life.
  • (3/5)
    great advice for how to approach picking a career. it makes sense to think about this stuff instead of falling into a career without thought. there's a lot of good reasons to read this at any age.
  • (4/5)
    An intersting look at how to find the right career.
  • (3/5)
    An enjoyable read even if it was was for work, not pleasure. This book would have been very handy many years ago and will be useful this year.
