Publisher's Summary

In 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate approached ten percent. Today, when new work is found, it may not be traditional. Studies estimate half of the American workforce will soon consist of freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, entrepreneurs, "electronic immigrants", and so forth.
Are you ready for the new normal? Dan Miller has seen it coming for years. But his thriving vocational best seller, 48 Days to the Work You Love, is not so much about finding a new job as it is learning about who we are really called to be in relation to our vocation - whatever shape that career may take in these changing times.
According to the author, failing to make that fundamental discovery of calling is why so many people find themselves in jobs they hate. But now, thousands upon thousands are finding the work they love, thanks to practical advice from this leading career counselor.
Conversational and creative, Miller helps the reader understand one's God-given skills and abilities, personality traits, values, dreams, and passions. Doing so helps us recognize clear patterns that will point toward successful decisions along the career path. Step by step, this updated edition of 48 Days to the Work You Love reveals the process for creating a Life Plan and translating that plan into meaningful and fulfilling daily work. Let the countdown begin!

At last a book on Jobs that doesn't start Steve !

Firstly I do have to start with a word of caution. Dan continually references the bible throughout this book and offers a strong Christian perspective. I would urge the listener not to be put off by this as the principals he discusses are in any event great principals, whatever your religious persuasion or otherwise. For the most part this is fine although once or twice it does border a bit on a sermon (complete with a bit of a dig at Tom Cruise/ Nicole Kidman!) . The book is also largely written from an American perspective. OK, so now the reasons as to why this warrants 5 stars. 1/ Dan reads very well, he has a very soothing, down-to-earth and yet also very passionate voice- he's a joy to listen to. 2/ Not many people have written about this subject and yet it is a very important subject that affects everyone on the globe to some capacity 3/ Dan turned his life around and is open and honest about what happened and what he gained from this experience 4/ there is a lot of sage advice here based on experience.
