"This book is a treasure. Read it, devour it, use it, and find that job you once dreamed about but had almost given up on." (Richard Nelson Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute?). "I've had the pleasure of working with John over several years where he has been a regular speaker at I Am events, on the theme of finding a job you love. John's talks never fail to inspire; the advice he gives is always very well received, insightful and most importantly, of a practical nature. From both my own personal perspective and that of our delegates, I can't recommend How to Get a Job You Love enough!" (Debbie Hockham, Director, I Am Enterprises). "A great book, full of insight and practical ideas. We spend much of our lives at work. It is important for us, and those around us, that we enjoy and are fulfilled by our work. And productivity and creativity come when we are passionate about our work. If you are not, work out how to be - read John's book."
