- Terrific guidance for someone in early engineering career and beyond Review by Amazon.com Customer
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.

- Inspirational to the Engineer and Non-Engineer Alike Review by Amazon.com Customer
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)
