  • David Cox "brodavefla" - a most amazing resource!I came across the reviews while setting up a link for a friend who I've advised to read this book. Can't believe the doofus who had an awful lot to say about the book, much of which was good, then gave it only one star because it wasn't another book by the same author or something. What a maroon!

    Anyway, I just don't have enough good things to say about "Parachute". I read the book when I was in the beginnings of a career change eight years ago, and it literally changed my life. I have the best job I've ever had, and have been on board for over seven years--that's over four years longer than ANY job I've ever held, anywhere.

    What happened? I read this book, did the "life mission" exercises, and built a job description based on my own unique life/work experiences and preferences. The job description was a pretty close match with the work I sought out and got hired for.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend this amazing resource to anyone who is in the midst of a career change, or is just contemplating finding work that is more meaninngful or a better fit. BUT...for it to really be of benefit to such a person, that person has to actually do the exercises in the book. I have a good friend who is a career counselor. I hadn't seen him in awhile and spoke to him recently about this subject. It is astounding to me that he assures me that I'm STILL the only person he knows of who has actually done the exercises in the book. The exercises aren't even that hard, it's just a matter of sitting down and doing something positive and helpful for yourself and your work prospects. This book's a perennial bestseller, so it looks like most folks either don't read it, or they breeze thru it without doing any of the work necessary in order to get any benefit out of it. That's what Zig Ziglar calls "stinkin' thinkin'!"

    Not only are a lot of folks out of work these days, but there are probably more people than that who are employed but aren't getting much out of their job other than a paycheck. I'm pretty sure that the world already has plenty enough people who are just going thru the motions at work. Would you like for someone like that to help you find a pair of shoes, serve you a meal, or wait on you when you're sick and in the hospital? I sure wouldn't...So if you are in a career transition, or just find yourself in a dead-end job that you're starting to hate, do yourself--and everyone else!--a favor: get this book, do the "life mission" exercises, and find that great job that's out there somewhere waiting for you!
  • Amanda - Love itI was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2006. My gastroenterologist recommended I take Align along with my prescription medication & the pair help keep my colon happy.
  • Charles K. - 100% satisfied with the Panasonic DMP-BD79100% satisfied with the Panasonic DMP-BD79. Set-up was quick and easy. Fast boot and load times. Excellent picture and sound quality. LAN port for wired network connection and Wi-Fi capable with optional, proprietary wireless LAN adapter (obviously not as cost effective as purchasing a Blu-ray player with built-in Wi-Fi.) Overall, a great Blu-ray Disc player.
  • THOR67 - Five starsGreat book- really looking forward to the third in this trilogy- cant' wait! Probably fair to say that I enjoyed marginally less than Wolf Hall. I can't work out if that is because I found out lots about Tom Cromwell in WH already and little more (about him and his mind) in BUTB or because the drama of a Wolsey-less story was less engaging than WH. But I do have to say that the BUTB story and writing was really good and enjoyable. Great character.
