This book is one of those you can just pick up, flick to any page and read some real gems. For me, that's what a book should be. Lois has mastered the model of mixing practical strategies with personal experience and all of that makes it really easy to read. The book is focussed on the future - what people can do and need to do for the future - it's not talking about strategies that are "old hat" or "last year" - it talks about how things have changed and are continuing to change and how to manage and deal with those changes.
I was reading this book on my Kindle (as we do these days) at a cafe and felt inspired from reading it, to say yes to the next role opportunity that came my way, regardless of what it was. I figured why not! So that afternoon an Executive role came through to me from an employment agency. I have been saying no to these roles, as I have felt they are beyond my skill set/abilities. After reading this book I said yes. I figure I can do it... and I got the inspiration from Lois's book. Thanks Lois :)
