Throughout most of American history, education was seen as the key to prosperity, success, and upward mobility. Yet the reality of the “Education Bubble” in the 21st Century has seen education leave countless millions without a job and trapped in a complicated maze of frustration and debt. Enter Roderick S. Baker and his essential guidebook, “Take Charge of Your Future: A 1-2-3 Guide to Making Good Career Choices,” which offers a three-step approach to finding one’s proper career trajectory. By asking the reader to assess where they are right now, where they want to go, and how they will get there, Baker cuts right to the chase. He offers a unique, hard-hitting, and intense approach to finding the answers students seek most. By crafting together inspirational quotes and stories, as well as his personal tales such as working as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Bolivia, the author acts as a “guide on the side,” empowering the reader to find his or her destiny. Incorporating stylish worksheets, Baker sets students on a path of self-analysis and permanent innovation by bringing together a coherent, intense, yet flexible philosophy that can help students to assess and reinvent themselves. Clearly there can be no substitute for establishing concrete plans to achieve one’s ultimate dreams, goals, and desires. Whether you are a first-year college student or ready to graduate, “Take Charge of Your Future” is the book that can change your life.
