    This book is a series of articles coupled together, and organized around themes. This allows the reader to pick and chose what they feel is important. However, like many self help business books the articles focus more on the glory parts of changings one career and less on the failure that often accompanies such efforts. In some ways books such as this perpetuate the myth that being passionate is enough to create a six figure income, and that drive and guts are all that one needs to successfully This book is a series of articles coupled together, and organized around themes. This allows the reader to pick and chose what they feel is important. However, like many self help business books the articles focus more on the glory parts of changings one career and less on the failure that often accompanies such efforts. In some ways books such as this perpetuate the myth that being passionate is enough to create a six figure income, and that drive and guts are all that one needs to successfully transition from one skill set to another. For example, one story highlights the fact that organizations that are undergoing rapid change are often quite open to non-traditional candidates. I concur with this completely and have seen it often in my professional work. However, the article fails to speak about the high rate of failure for those who are thrust into high stress, rapid change environments when the individuals lack the core skill set for the role. Such omissions are fairly common and are likely to leave an uninformed reader to believe that career change is simply a wish and a hope away. With these exceptions the articles are well written, as one should expect from HBR, and they cover the gamet of issues and ideas. Personally this is a good book to check out of a library as I can not honestly say that it is worth the roughly $200.00 that Harvard has charged in the past.

    One of the things people consider before they become parents is how they will manage their careers once they have kids. This book provides plenty of information on how to be a successful peofessional while juggling the equal if not more important role of being a parent. The insights also helps on dealing with situations involving your spouse or partner in raising your family and kids.

    There is good information for just about everybody to put into practice in "Managing Oneself", "Managing Your Boss", and "A Survival Guide for Leaders" are useful. The article on part-time work would also be useful to many people. The other articles seem much more geared to upper/top management and not as easily put to good use by the common dude.
