Publisher Comments:

For career consultant Laurence Boldt everyone is the artist of his or her own life. In this potentially life-changing book, he offers the most innovative, unconventional — and profoundly practical — career guide since What Color is Your Parachute?In addition to more traditional material like assessing skills and writing a resume, there is a wealth of information not generally found in career guides, including how to start a business, work freelance, found a non-profit corporation — and love what you are doing until you're doing what you love.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 575-591) and index.

Ken Klein, September 5, 2011 (view all comments by Ken Klein)
Here is a book I come back to again and again - for its information, certainly. But more for its inspiration and spiritual guidance - if that doesn't sound too over-the-top. Zen and the Art of Making a Living is more than just a guidebook about how to write a great resume, build useful referrals, and knock 'em dead in interviews. It takes the audacious step of asking very primal questions - such as - what is it that you really want to do with your life? It dares to discuss questions of personal fulfillment - of providing service to others - of gaining personal satisfaction with one's work and deeds. In an era when many of us are scrambling just to get by - and willing to take any exploitative opportunity to keep a roof over our heads - it's important, I think, to keep the fundamentals of a quality life front and center. And time and again, this book has provided the means to do just that for me. The clever layout allows you to get as deep into certain areas as you choose - but it's also a pleasure to simply skim for the many terrific quotes - from a great and diverse pool of philosophers and thinkers. At the very least, it can help re-order your personal priorities, ask yourself the hard questions, and then provide a toolset to enable you to reach, perhaps, a more creative and fulfilling set of choices than you otherwise might have chosen. I know I'm on my way to the next great adventure.
