I like that the book gets down to business. Some of the things I already talk to my students about. That's not a bad thing. It just let me know that I need to keep discussing those things. I like that there is a check off section towards the end of the book.
The writer Tracy Brisson is the founder and CEO of The Opportunities Project, a national talent development, coaching and recruitment consulting agency, and a recognized career coach, recruitment expert, and author. Kind of random, but I noticed that the writer lives in Savannah, Georgia. That's where I went to grad school. Such a pretty, blooming place.
