Excellent special issue

Learn what turns smart, ambitious people into underachievers and how the right autobiographical story can help you in your personal life and career. I found both these articles very useful. Particularly creating the an autobio to match career goals - a new way to thing about the, "Tell me about yourself" question in an interview or introduction.
