'Helps young and not-so-young hopefuls get ahead' - Sunday Times

By the time you retire you'll have spent a third of your life working. That's far too long to be stuck in a job you hate or even just tolerate. But where to start?

Life's Work will show you 12 proven ways to fast track your career, so when you leap out of bed every Monday morning you'll be ready to take on the world. The book is written by James Reed, Chairman of REED, Britain's best-known recruitment brand. Over the past 25 years he has helped millions of people find jobs. This has given him a deep insight into what makes some people successful in building a rewarding career, while others are stuck in the confusion and frustration of not landing the job they want.

Through these multiple observations and conversations, James has learned that there are 12 key ways to build and sustain the career you want. You will learn how to:

Be (sustainably) selfish

Kick start some good habits and kick out some bad ones

Think in days and decades

Be powerful, be prepared

Find a boss you can learn from

Today's job landscape allows you more freedom to carve your own path than ever before. Along with this, however, comes the responsibility of shaping your mind and actions to make your career work for you. This book shows you how.
