Most self-help books seem to be simply pep talks, full of sound and positivity and signifying nothing. This one is full of sense, with 100 topics focusing on helping someone who is unemployed or newly employed or soon to be out of work or searching for a better job. The excellent reading is sometimes jarring, because the topics are not always clearly differentiated, so that sometimes "you" are referred to as a manager and at other times "you" may be looking for your first job. In the book itself, these sections were probably clearly marked off separate paragraphs, but they tend to blend together here, despite the fact that they are numbered. Nonetheless, this is a valuable quick listen for anyone concerned with their job -- and that is just about everyone. It has imbued me with a calmer perspective on my personal job search, and turned out to be a much better book than I expected.

There's not much to be gained for folks who have experience with job changes. Not many new "ideas". However, for newcomers, it'd be a good 'starters' audiobook.
One takeaway though was that references are now being openly listed on resumes (the pitch for doing that was compelling enough). There ... you now have the one idea I took away from this book.
