Description:Reboot Your Career: 27 Ways to Reinvent Yourself in the Workplace... (If You Still Have a Job!) by Peter J. Fogel does just what it promises. It motivates the reader to try 27+ ways to make their job, as well as their life, more managed, meaningful, and exciting; not to mention less stressful. These steps include: finding out what you are passionate about/ what goals you have, making yourself into the person you want to be, managing your time and money, learning to network, and generally, reinventing yourself in order to get to where, and who, you want to be. Basically, it's an easy to understand self-help book for anyone, (employed or unemployed), that wants to make it further in, and be more happy with, their career.
After graduation, I myself am unemployed; so when I saw the chance to read and review 'Reboot Your Career...' I jumped at it! Peter Fogel's tips are very well organized, as well as helpful; written in a way that is simple for readers to understand and implement in their daily lives. The chapters are short and to the point, with a little humor to ease the way through more detail heavy material. The comics were a surprise, funny, but related to the sections they were in. I appreciated that the book's overall tone was that of motivation, optimism, and a do-it-yourself attitude; I dislike when other self-help books talk down to the reader. None of the tips are extreme, in contrast most of them are very simple, it's just about being able to stick with them. Overall, I liked Peter Fogel's approach to self-reinvention, and feel that it is a good book for anyone,with or without a job, to have on their desk.
