    Super all-in-one career growth handbook for engineers Review by Amazon.com Customer
    As an aerospace engineer always looking for tools to improve myself, this is a super all-in-one handbook. It is densely-packed and comprehensive. I just finished reading the updated 2014 edition. I can vouch for many of the recommendations and references in the book because I've also used them to build a rewarding career.

    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.

    Great book for any career. Review by Amazon.com Customer
    I have to admit that when I saw this book, I didn't read the title accurately and didn't realize it was actually for Engineers. However, once I started reading, I realized that his advice can also be used in other career areas as well. With a little tweaking, you can use these helpful tips in any career choice.

    He touches on things such as how to build a winning resume, how to land a job interview and how to put your best forward during that interview and getting the job you always wanted, career goals, finding a mentoring program, becoming a great communicator, how to network and why it's important, how to stay focused and stay productive. And much, much more. As you can see, it's not just for engineers, there is actually a lot of great advice in this book for any career.

    The book is easy reading as well. It's not to overly technical, the writing style is good and clear and easy to follow. Towards the back of the book there are some exercise work sheets and templates for helping you with writing your resume, and exercises that will help you map out our goals and reach them. It's a great informative and helpful book for any career. (Posted on 5/12/2015)
