    11. I got this book from good reads first reads I am very satisfied with my job so I didn t anticipate getting much out of parts 1 and 2 but those sections made me realize how on the spot the book would be about how the workplace is right now Without knowing it, I can point to this book and say this is or less what I did to get my job Oddly enough I felt part 3 was the weakest of all sectionst bad just not as out of the park as the rest The sections and layout made perfect logical sense and each wa [...]

    15. I read the New Rules of Work in the context of a business owner developing an HR department to attract and retain desirable talent I wanted to know what employees in the technology age want from their careers, where they are searching for opportunities, and what types of employers they find attractive The authors answered all these questions Therefore, I recommend this book to other entrepreneurs even though we are not the primary intended audience for the book.

    22. I received this book for free through Giveaways A 2.5 star book.This book is okay but nothing groundbreaking like one might expect from the title I think the Muse Grid is an interesting but flawed idea it s a GREAT idea to judge a potential job based on how well it seems to match with your values but I don t think the vertical axis functions industries works so well since there can be numerous different jobs within a function or industry and those different jobs can have different scores for the [...]
