    Excellent, Goal-Oriented Career Planning Guide Review by Amazon.com Customer
    The author takes a proactive stance that favors an always-prepared approach to career development. The book is compact, using bare essentials that are beneficial to many science-based career paths. I am pleased with this book, and its easy to follow philosophies. (Posted on 5/12/2015)

    Very worthwhile guide for an engineer, whether newly graduated or mid-career.ether Review by Amazon.com Customer
    As someone who is very familiar with the engineering field, I thought this book would be a interesting book based on the premise , which is providing career advice. I was not wrong. This book has lots of great information for newly graduated to more experienced management level types who could use some useful information on managing a career.

    This book is published by the IEEE, so it is an indication that it is a serious effort to provide useful information to aspiring engineers. As a prospective reader may be aware, the information here is something an engineer may not always be cognizant as being a skill since emotional intelligence is not something that is considered an engineering trait at all times (okay, brutal and harsh, but given the thinking tree of engineers and the relationships to management, much truth).

    There really is quite a bit of useful information I found here to have application to careers generally, but the engineering bent is really fantastic. The 7 elements allows for a god wide-ranging discussion that needs to be held and internalized in a professional setting.

    A very useful and worthwhile purchase. (Posted on 5/12/2015)
