Publisher's Summary

It's not uncommon to meet a lawyer who'd like to work in renewable energy, or an app developer who'd like to write a novel, or an editor who fantasizes about becoming a landscape designer. It's often rare for such people to make the leap. The costs of switching seem too high, and the possibility of success seems too remote. The answer is to do both. Two careers are better than one. And by committing to two careers, you will produce benefits for both.

A bit unrealistic

While I appreciate the message that the author was trying to convey, such as the benefits of opening yourself to two seemingly unrelated fields, I was distracted by the anecdotes. They felt a bit too privileged and out of touch with reality.
