#review Winning the Game of Work, by Terry Boyle Mcdougall @teebeemhp

MY REVIEW 4 stars:

This book is pretty cool, and isn’t at all what I expected. It’s out of my usual genre, and although I do enjoy and like to rotate self-help into my regular reading, however this is a completely different type of self-help than what I usually gravitate to. I went in expecting it to be rather cut and dry, and I was curious as to how you could possibly talk about applying yourself in the working field for over 200 pages. That said, I was very pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t cut and dry, full of all the successful tips and tricks of exactly how you should be in the work field, not at all really.

This book actually has a lot of heart and personality. It gives an account of many experiences, and approaches that are – effective, self-destructive and really everything in between. What I really loved is that the content in this book isn’t directed at one particular type of working class. It isn’t only for those who’ve been in the working field for years, or only for those who are new to obtaining a ‘job’… There’s something to gain, no matter where you stand when it comes to earning money and ‘working’ for pay. It gives prospective and help in utilizing your own personal skills and passion, no matter what phase you’re in.

I highly recommend this book, especially to teens who are about to embark on their lifetime as independent adults. I actually have a list of books to read with my own children as they grow, and am happy to say this particular book has made its place on the list along with Rich Dad Poor Dad, The Secret, and Think and Grow Rich. A special thanks to the author and Reads and Reels for a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
