“This book is essential if you are in the market for a new career…. The lessons and guidelines in the book apply and speak to multi-generational and socioeconomic audiences, and best of all, it is an easy read…. I particularly love the 118 tips. They are sensible, practical, timeless and smart. It’s the type of advice that a parent or mentor would dispense and urge you to apply in your work (and home) life. It has given me the confidence I needed to face those nerve-wracking interviews and snag the job! Do yourself a favor and get a copy. NOW!”
