Over the past three decades, professor Larry Smith has become something of a "career whisperer" for his students at the University of Waterloo. Each year, millions of talented college and university students graduate with little or no real sense of what their next step will be, yet they are determined not to settle for so-so careers; they are looking for great careers. Smith points out that only a few fortunate souls are born knowing exactly what they want to pursue in life. The rest of us have to stop making excuses and start asking ourselves tough questions about achieving our goals.

In his straightforward, no-nonsense approach, Smith itemizes and dismisses all the usual excuses, fears and worries that people hide behind when trying to find their true direction. His unusual take on this challenging conundrum is both universal and timely, and his stunning TEDx talk on this subject has been viewed by more than six million people so far.

This is the perfect book for all college graduate who are wondering where they fit into the world, or for mid-career men and women who find themselves heading down the wrong path. It won't necessarily be easy, but if you follow Smith's guidance, your career dreams can indeed come true.

This is the book I wished I read back in college. Too often as I went from chapter to chapter, I found the author was talking directly to me. If you read any book about discovering what your "great career" path should be, read this one.
