    Review:

    "This is a masterful pulling together of the available knowledge about career research and practice, written in a lively and practical manner.  All people who have, plan to have, or study careers could profit from reading this book."

    Douglas T. Hall, Professor of Organizational Behavior, School of Management, Boston University, USA

    "The management of careers is a critical issue for both individuals and organizations these days. This work provides a much needed textbook that can be of great help to instructors, students, managers and practitioners, and to everyone who is or will be in employment. Baruch, a well-known careers scholar himself, manages to achieve the balance between maintaining high academic standards and providing a useful resource for non-specialists."

    Nikos Bozionelos PhD CPsychol, Senior Lecturer, HRM Department, Strathclyde Business School

    "This is a very interesting and challenging book. It is a valuable addition to the subject area."

    Dr Sharon Clarke, Lecturer in Organizational Psychology, Manchester School of Management, UMIST
