This book sounds like a valuable tutorial for young people who want to get the best out of their lives. Besides the size of the book appeals to me - it's only 80 pages long, not long enough to bore the person to boredom, but according to the review quite informative and educational. Congratulations on becoming BOTD!

While I may not be benefited by this book at this late stage in my life, I believe it will help the young make good career choices. Finding the career that's the right fit is indeed a major decision that needs a lot of thought and guidance. This book seems to be a worthwhile investment of time.

Latest Review: Roadmap to the End of Days by Daniel Friedmann

Post by kjs237 »

This review includes mention of the steps a person in high school would want to take in order to determine a career path. Networking and interviewing someone in a profession they might be interested in would be a great start. I wish I would have had a resource like this before entering college. I went to college because that's what all my friends were doing. I chose the college they all chose and the major they all chose as well. If I were to have spent one hour observing what a person in that career had to deal with, I would never have spent 4 years earning that degree. This book sounds like something that would be of benefit to all high school students, starting in their freshman year.

Great review! I so wish this book had been around as I was going into college, it would have helped so much. I especially love the advice that was mentioned to make a list of what you like to do every day and try and go from there. That is great advice!

We have a different system so college isn't a thing here but this sounds like it could be useful in general for students coming out of school. Sounds interesting and the review was enjoyable to read, thank you!

Sounds as if this takes a fresh and easily digestible approach to choosing a career in a personalized way. That was all pushed a lot when I was at school but it was ultimately unhelpful to me personally; I just studied what I liked most at college and have continued to keep pursuing what I most enjoy. I'm sure this sort of advice has its place for some, though.

I wished I had this kind of advice when I was in High School. It seems like a book that can really help children and think even grownups.

very useful guide book especially for the ones who are just at the beginning of their career and wondering about which option to choose. reading this book should add to the input for choosing right college and subject
life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- I believe this is my own quote. If someone quoted this before I am glad to know.

Thanks for piquing my interest with this review. It sounds as if the book was well thought out and researched. I have gone past my college days, but I do know some students who are not so I will be recommending this to them to read! Well done!
