Very informative book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I highly recommend, " Becoming Generation Flux." It's a very comprehensive yet concise audiobook on career planning. There are many insights on the data on unemployment and labor trends. I appreciated how the author also gives historical context so that his readers can better understand the influxes of the job market. For example, he explains how machines have dramatically changed the era that we live in and resulted in the decline of white collar jobs. The author mentioned people in my generation (90s kids) and how we are more at risk to lie with our parents. This resonated highly with me. However, I feel better prepared and wiser in my career. This audiobook has definitely given me some useful tips and methods.
