A Must Read!

A reader can learn different aspects from either experience. I would recommend both!

There are many key takeaways that are applicable to many different career paths. I plan to pull out the key points in a list and keep them on hand to remind myself.

Which character – as performed by Karen Saltus – was your favorite?

I did not have a favorite character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I preferred to listen section by section due to time constraints.

Any additional comments?

This book is a must read for student and practitioner alike! Dorie leaves the reader with critical takeaways that are both refreshing and insightful. I found this book very helpful in redirecting my career search in a meaningful and positive manner. I refer to this book periodically to remind myself of key points, as I negotiate my next move.

A Methodical Approach to Find a Career You'll Love

Would you consider the audio edition of Reinventing You to be better than the print version?

I enjoy listening to the audio edition. The narrator was very clear and pleasant. I usually refer to the print edition after listening audiobooks, so that I can re-read specific pages or references.<br/><br/>There's a self-assessment questionnaire in the appendix of the print edition that doesn't appear to be available to audiobook customers.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the step-by-step framework that the book provides for finding and preparing yourself for a new career. This includes learning about how you're perceived by colleagues and friends, seeking out informational interviews and mentors, test-driving potential professions, and explaining your career transition to others.This book provides a very well thought out approach for anyone considering a career change, whether or not they know what they want to do next. Many relevant examples and best practices of how others have succeeded in their career transitions are provided in each chapter.

What does Karen Saltus bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

No, but she is definitely one of the stronger narrators that I've heard.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Reinventing You by Dorie Clark. Nothing wrong with the title, but then again I'm not a filmmaker.

Any additional comments?

A lot of very practical advice and a framework to bring it all together. The way that people prepare for and find their next job has changed dramatically over the past few years. This book brought me up-to-date on how I can use this to my advantage.

Very basic ... Might be good if you're 25?

I was disappointed in the book ... The ideas were obvious, the examples questionable, the narrative grating... Overall I had a really hard time justifying the time to finish it. The author states as one point that due to the Internet there is little cost to publish your intellectual property .... Well just because it's published doesn't mean you should spend your valuable time reading it. This is quite possibly the worst book I've read in years

Not my call to action

Dorie shares some tremendous insights, and crystallizes many aspects of success into a simple action plan. Each chapter though left me feeling more and more alienated, thinking 'That's a whole lotta work'. For someone wholeheartedly into the title, it might change their life. For someone who enjoyed hearing Dorie on a podcast and curious about what this is all about, like me, it might seem like a uni textbook or workbook. It holds some interest, I got something from it, but I'm feeling I'm fine without following it completely.
