Book Review: Radical Careering by: Sally Hogshead.

Hello All,

I rarely do this, albeit this entry would be considered my first book review ever. The reason why I'm reviewing this book is because plainly I enjoyed it. With that said I'm biased for quotations, especially those that offer unconditional truth & wisdom.

Such is the book titled "Radical Careering" by: Sally Hogshead published by Gotham Books a division of Penguin Group (USA) Inc.

What is this book all about and what makes it different about any other book in this genre? Well this book offers 100 quotations in motivating individuals in their careers to clear their dust bunnies. It also offers interweaved an opinion poll they conducted to gauge those readers reflection of what they want out of their careers.

The book is written in not a classical cover to cover book with quotations. But a web format with gotcha pictures and a quote with a brief summary. Sprinkled in there are the results of the this opinion poll that is also intergrated with 19 micro websites to reinforce the reflection of Sally's quotations of " get up and go mentality".

Out of 5 stars I'll offer a 3.5 stars since this I suspect is a first book in a series of more to come. Ala the "Chicken Soup of the Soul" books done a decade ago or so.

Here is the website for the book "Radical Careering".
