    I think the worst thing about career-oriented books is that they’re generally too one-dimensional to be of use to anyone but a specific subset of people. One book might contain tips only on networking, another only covering resumes and cover letters. The best part of Mr. Cohen’s experience as a career coach is that he engaged in writing a book for people looking to improve their careers. This book is certainly useful to anyone looking to change careers or seeking a difficult promotion, but it’s also useful for people like me who are happily employed and want to think through true CAREER planning, not simply get a few networking tips.

    Despite the book’s title, I was happily surprised by the breadth and depth of this book. As I mentioned, I’m not seeking a job but nonetheless found value in every chapter. It’s a must read for every professional serious about his/her career, regardless of whether they’re on Wall Street or not.
