A powerful model for career reinvention that reverses conventional wisdom Includes fascinating case studies of personal and professional reinventions from literature professor to stockbroker, from psychiatrist to Buddhist monk, and from investment banker to fiction writer, among others. Gives readers a new way to understand change in their lives. Career change is not a step-by-step linear process it s crooked and takes much longer than we think. Nor is change the result of one big event. Rather, many small steps add up to a successful change.
