I was fortunate enough to be able to get an advanced copy of this book. As a career advisor I found this to have a fresh and interesting perspective on the career industry with some brilliant new ideas. Since reading the book, I have used many of these concepts and statistics in my professional life. And, as someone with almost 20 years in the working world, I found that this book could give even me a great deal to think about.
I strongly recommend this book for people coming out of school and starting their careers (or struggling to start a meaningful career) or those who have started to feel uninspired by their daily work. This book will give you tangible advise on how to shape your career and achieve "life-style based career success". After all isn't that what we are all looking for? Don't you want to work to live rather than live to work?

About the Author
Entering work in a dream job with the Edmonton Oilers Hockey Club that culminated in a Cinderella Stanley Cup playoff run, Tyler shook his head while voluntarily walking away after only two years on the job. Why leave? He simply knew it was not the right career path for him (something the 1700 people who applied to replace him were thankful for). Instead, he began a quest to answer the question plaguing him: “Why do so many people struggle with their entry into work?” Fast forward a decade; mix together interviews with dozens of fortune 500 CEOs, hundreds of students and workers; a Masters degree in organizational leadership; work in countries like India, Belize, Qatar and China; and you have the body of knowledge which has Tyler rewiring our approach to work and mobilizing the next generation of workers.
