What do readers say?
“Many, many books come across my reading table each year, but it has been a long time since one of them impressed me so much as this one has. Carol has set out to illuminate a very perplexing subject—that of the creative or unconventional impulse in us all. And I found her insights quite dazzling.” Richard Nelson Bolles, author of What Color is Your Parachute?
“As a college career counselor and writer myself, I’ve read many career books. Only a handful (literally) has said anything that has stayed with me, and yours was one of them.”
“I finished your book last night, and this morning I feel big things brewing. Thank you so much! At 27 years old, I have limped through a six year working existence, one marked by fear, depression, dissatisfaction, and guilt. How exciting to read my story in the pages of your book! How exciting to find a prescription for moving beyond the safe world of cowardice into the adventure of chasing one’s dreams. You have truly written one of those EUREKA books. I have recommended and will continue to recommend your book to everyone I care about.”
“You and your inspired (and inspiring) writing gave me immeasurable help in broadening my vision, in showing me how I can work my way forward step by step (without betraying my dreams), and before all in giving me the confidence to be proud of this step I’m about to take. You helped me open my heart.”
“I have waited a long time to find a book that validates my need to do it my own way. I'm now ready to embark on my journey, your book being a real catalyst. ...I drank it down and voila! a change in my outlook has come after years of doubts.”
“I still have not been able to put your book down. I keep reading and re-reading excerpts from various chapters! I went to Barnes and Noble feeling like a ‘defeated’ ‘failure’ of a person . . . I left there feeling very different!! There is hope for me and all the other people like me!!
“Those of us who walk to a different drummer owe you a heartfelt thanks. The Career Guide for Creative and Unconventional People is a remarkable book. Chapter Two should be required reading for every psychology major, education major, business major, political science major, etc. The validation this book provides has thickened my skin, warded off depression, bolstered self-confidence, inspired risk taking, and has frequently helped me to roll with the ‘punches’ often dealt by those who just don’t ‘get it’.”
“I’ve just finished reading your book, The Career Guide for Creative and Unconventional People. It’s a gem! I’ve been waiting for this book all my life. I can’t see you but throughout the book I felt you were there right beside me, guiding me to take steps to participate in the journey of my life. In fact, I imagined you as my mentor holding my hand. You’ve given me and many artistic people out there a spiritual, meaningful book that is going to be a source of strength and courage in a world that is yet to mature. I now know where to begin my career adventure after 38 years, and blimy! I’m looking forward to the uncertain, shaky, and tumultuous journey.”
