Apart from the last 2 chapters, one inspirational(about career success =~ happiness, maybe something that needs to be explained in the USA) and the other mostly an ad space, the book is a real little gem, consistently providing actionable and updated tips about all aspects of the career journey in all of its chapters.
The audiobook version has a very high quality audio and narration.
As a career coach I highly recommend this book for studenta who are about or just graduated from college: it is crowded with useful themes and tips about how to go on building your career! I find it also useful for students starting college, so they know how they can take best advantage of their experience!
