Review by flydodofly
This self-help book is for people who are having second thoughts about their work, and who have felt unhappy about it for a while, but are feeling unable to do anything about it. It may help you sort out your thoughts and guide you through a few exercises that, in turn, might help you realise what it is that you dislike about your work and what exactly you can attempt to change. I am sure that some people may even realise that it is not their work that they are unhappy about... it is a simple book with a lovely smooth cover - you will want to cradle it in your hands forever. That would probably be a bad idea, though, because what the book urges you to do is - act first, think about it later. I like that approach a lot, I must admit.
