KIRKUS REVIEW

A motivational self-help manual for those seeking more emotionally satisfying vocational experiences. Borrowing from some recognized authorities (Thomas J. Peters, The Passion For Excellence; Studs Terkel, Working; Richard Bolles, What Color is Your Parachute), Cameron (How to Control Your High Blood Pressure -- Without Drugs!) and Elusorr provide a thought-provoking, if slightly idealistic approach to realizing life satisfaction through meaningful work experience. First, through a ""Job Physical"" encompassing situation assessment and candid analysis, ascertain where you are work-wise, in relation to where you think--or know--you should be. Next, apply the specific strategies devised to address each distinct facet of this newfound understanding, from the value of money in satisfaction to Zenning your way through an undesirable situation. Other suggestions range from ""underwriting your true work"" and living a double life to bypassing negative aspects of work through the setting of ideological goals and working towards their completion as well. The systemmatic approach espoused by the authors is sensibly--and logically--presented. Virtually anyone experiencing job crises could benefit from the self-assessment concepts here outlined.
