    Terrific guidance for someone in early engineering career and beyond Review by Amazon.com Customer
    A life coach between covers for engineers. This is a terrific resource for anyone starting in a career, but is specifically targeted at engineers. Author Anthony Fasano learned his lessons through daily life: he was a working engineer for 10 years and experienced the difficulties of advancing in a career while maintaining a personal life. He did well and through fortuitous circumstances began coaching others, ultimately become a certified life coach.

    This is a no-nonsense guide covering seven areas essential to a young engineer’s professional and personal growth. These areas are career goals, credentials, mentoring, communication, networking, organization and leadership.

    The author writes in a direct, clar style. No “rah-rah”, fluffy stuff here: just practical advice.

    The book consists, in a way, of short, almost bullet points with some text attached. The chapter on credentialing, for example, includes 20 such points.

    Fasano is very contemporary: his chapter on networking includes some of the best advice I’ve ever seen on using LinkedIn to advance your career.

    This is a very well done piece of work. I wish, back in my day, I had something like this. The books extant back then were mostly fuzzy inspirational tomes or razzmatazz, attaboy you can do it pep speeches.

    This book is simply solid advice. While oriented toward younger engineers starting in their careers, its advice can be helpful to almost anyone, no matter what career stage they’re in.

    Things you'll need to know Review by Amazon.com Customer
    There is a market for engineers if you think you've got what it takes to be the best. A lot of important tips are covered and one that stands out the most is networking tactics. We all know that most of the time its not what you know but who you know, but with Engineering its a tangled web of both.

    If you know your stuff and you happen to get in with the right people you can go anywhere. Organization, planning, and studying will come in to play as well and since non of the materials, courses, or exams are cheap you want to make sure 1 time is all you need. Whether your a young student considering the world of engineering or you looking for a new career this book can show you want you'll have to do to get there. Recommended! (Posted on 5/12/2015)

    Inspirational to the Engineer and Non-Engineer Alike Review by Amazon.com Customer
    The title intrigued me as I wanted to see if the tenants author Anthony Fasano advocates in his book are not limited to the engineering field. After reading his book I can safely say that it is true but written in a very to-the-point if not bulletized format that an engineer would be most comfortable with and, I gotta say, it makes reading it a whole lot easier.

    Fasano's points on networking, job searching, mentoring, and good leadership are facets of life that anyone can appreciate should they want to make the most out of life whether they're the intended engineering audience or a mid-level manager in retail. I love the format Fasano uses as it's very easy to follow and right to the point unlike most inspirational books that meander their way through fluff and rhetoric.

    A good read for anyone wanting to improve their careers regardless of the field they're in. (Posted on 5/12/2015)
