If looking solely at the career advice, I would give this book a 3-star rating. However, the author kept inserting his opinions into the book. For a non-fiction book about careers, I really don't care what the author thinks about religion and homeland security. The kicker was when he and his wife wrote "top ten careers musts for women" and the same for men. In addition to reading (in the women's section) about "flirting to advantage", I then read the men's section and learned that "The unvarnished truth is that in today's typical workplace, men must usually accommodate to women's ways, not vice versa."
This book is really helpful :)
