One of the great truths of life by is that we are victims of our fears, and yet typically we don't even know it. We make all kinds of rationalizations to justify ourselves -- "I have bad luck," "I'm not good enough to work there," "They probably already hired somebody" -- but the reality is that Fear keeps us stuck in place. To paraphrase Tony Robbins, "If there's something you want to do, that you know you're capable of doing, but just can't seem to get around to doing, then Fear is the problem."
Katy Piotrowski's great little book is a roadmap for overcoming the fears inherent in the job search, which may be one of THE most fear-inducing experiences in life (right up there with public speaking, walking down the aisle, and eating raw pig uteruses on Fear Factor!). How many people do you know who constantly whine about how much they hate their job... Who wish they were doing something else, but know it's an impossible dream... Or who are stalled in a job far below their intellectual capacity? This book is the key to their self-imposed prison cell.
