The Pathfinder is one of the better career books out there, and I used to recommend it until I figured out that 99% of all career planning is bulls**t. People and industries change too fast nowadays to plan anything useful beyond a couple of years, and that's a good thing. Career planning, if done right, is taking an extra step of doing something you were already going to do. If done wrong, career planning is nothing more than stalling. Want to find a job you'll love? Here's my 3-step plan: (1) Throw away that career book. (2) Try as many new activities as you can, and over time this will inevitably lead to meeting new people and learning about even more opportunities. The key is to do more doing, and less thinking about doing. (3) Rinse and repeat. Do more of the things you love and less of the things you don't.

One of the best self-evaluation tools out there. Definitely will buy it. A great complement to What Color is Your Parachute.
