There is just so much to take away from [this book], it is well researched and written in an accessible format providing bite-sized chapters that can be easy to digest when needed ... This is a kind of Chicken Soup for the Soul book, inspirational and bringing stories of real lives to the pages associated with the global workforce. I can guarantee you will have a 'aha' moment and you be heard muttering to yourself 'that makes so much sense'.
