    I won a copy of this book from Goodreads Giveaways. Some of the advice in this book is fine and some is a little bit too focused on high level positions or end of career planning. Worth taking out of the library as youre thinking about a career change, but thats probably all Id recommend. I won a copy of this book from Goodreads Giveaways.

    I DNF at 76 pages, so take what you will from what I'm about to say... Start Now has some decent morsels of insight in it. Levy knows his business. These are two undeniable statements. But... you have to skim through pages and pages of straight unbroken text to get there, all of which consist mostly of repetition, self-promotion, lists of stuff you already know, and weird asides that don't have anything to do with anything. (For example, there's a paragraph on bad search firms not getting their I DNF at 76 pages, so take what you will from what I'm about to say... Start Now has some decent morsels of insight in it.

But... you have to skim through pages and pages of straight unbroken text to get there, all of which consist mostly of repetition, self-promotion, lists of stuff you already know, and weird asides that don't have anything to do with anything. (For example, there's a paragraph on bad search firms not getting their comeuppance that seemed kinda personal...). But let's be honest, most of these job search books are pretty much the same. They're all elaborate checklists with self-improvement exercises and activities to get young people on the right path. Well this one isn't like that, and it probably should be. As it is, it's a boring slog. For someone wanting something different, give it a go, it IS different, and like I said: Levy knows his business and there are some things in here worth thinking about. Thanks Goodreads giveaways and the publisher for a free advanced copy.

    This book is not meant to show you what type of job is best suited for you. Rather, it is an overall guide of how to best navigate the job search and job-changing journey. And as that it offers quality general advise useful for anyone in any job setting.
