    "Two basic, not for anyone looking for new insights for career changes"

    I had heard about this book and was excited to listen to it, it is a very long listen and I actually went through the whole thing, there were some decent nuggets of good information, but overall was very basic and most of the advice was obvious stuff that can be found by doing a simple internet search. In fact there are parts in which he talks about the internet as if it’s something new!! This book was written for 2018 with a 2008 (or older) mentality. Probably good for people that are old and have not needed to look for a job in 20 years, or for college students that are brand new to the workforce and are looking for an entry-level job, maybe. I don’t recommend this book if you already know how to do Internet job searches and are up-to-date with technology today
