Reviews - What do customers think about Your Perfect Job: A Guide to Discovering Your Gifts, Following Your Passions, and Loving Your Work for the Rest of Your Life?
Very Disappointing Mar 14, 2006
This book went great until page 18, when it switched into high-gear, Christian bible-thumping mode. It goes as far as to say "...it's only when we go after those ideals from the foundation of Christian faith that our efforts will yield anything worth holding on to." I have no problem with books geared towards Christians. I DO, however, have a problem with devious marketing. There are no idicators anywhere on the cover that this is anything but a guide to choosing a career. Instead, it is just another tool designed to shove Christianity down unsuspecting throats.
A Wonderful Guide ...and Resource! Mar 26, 2003
Thanks be to Robert Bittner for giving this generation their own parachute to color with the stories of others. A wonderful reminder of discovering your passion in the workplace. Put this in the hand of any college-age student, any one considering mid-career work changes or just wanting new zeal for their current job.
