Career Shock

James C. Cotham, Author, Lamar Alexander, Introduction by Dutton Books $17.95 (182p) ISBN 978-1-55611-205-8
The author, who held four jobs in higher education, business and government before age 46, addresses this manual to readers who, he believes, can expect to change jobs five to six times during their careers. The practical and liberating remedies he offers to alleviate the trauma of moving about are based on action plans that emphasize personal growth rather than monetary reward as the benchmark of a successful career and life. ``Take charge'' is Cotham's zealous exhortation delivered with a strong spiritual intonation. A member of the faculty at the University of Tennessee, Cotham provides checklists for evaluating one's career management. (Apr.)
