The Money Is the Gravy: Finding the Career That Nourishes You

John Clark, Author Business Plus $19.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-446-52918-1
If you're trapped in an unfulfilling career, take comfort in knowing it's not just you--according to New Zealander Clark, job depression is a global phenomenon. Clark writes about the despondency that comes with an unrewarding profession and how he dealt with it himself (he was a former commercial lawyer) in this positive but unimaginative guide. In the spirit of the 1980s classic Do What You Love, the Money Will Follow, Clark encourages readers to choose happiness over money and to""follow your bliss."" He does this in an entertaining manner, enlivening the text with cartoons like Dilbert and Calvin and Hobbes and quotations by everyone from St. Augustine to Lucille Ball. The book is light on concrete strategies for making a life-altering career transition, serving more as an inspirational tool. In that way, it's more spiritual than most career manuals, exhorting job seekers to leave behind their angst-ridden cubicle lives and do what truly appeals to their inner selves.
