Would you try another book from Richard N. Bolles and/or Patrick Lawlor?

I really loved this book in 2012 and I really thought it would be great as I was trying a new career move. But honestly this didn't help at all. I also wasn't crazy about the narrator as I often fell asleep. I think you need this in a book form in order to get the full benefit of it. I had to keep rewinding to write points down. I would not recommend this as a book for

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Should be required reading for all high school students; and all new grads from college should read this book

I have personally purchased over 50 copies of this book as a gift for others. I bought 6 copies this year alone👍, as I have encountered a good number of friends and family who just needed some tools or in a big transition in life
Some just hated their job, but loved their work
I was re reading this time to see how social media was best used for professionals. The information was invaluable and I have immediately started to work on my online professional presence.
Everyone should read this book regardless of work/profession. And re read every so often to reevaluate how/who they are professionally and use this tool to help keep them on the best track for their search for the job that best fits their passions in life!
