'Do you feel your career needs a kick-start? Do you want to learn what motivates you and where you are going next? Written with perceptive observation and clarity by an expert in employability and communication skills, this book takes account of the rapidly changing world of work. It help the reader analyse him/herself and where s/he wants to be in life. It skilfully avoids the pseudo-psychological or overly mystical slant of many personal development books.' (I've taken this from the publishers' own blurb).
