Fire Your Boss by Pollan

Rating:
+5
The work challenges us to think critically about how much time we spend in work-related things without compensation. For instance, the opportunity cost of travelling to work, searching for work and bringing work home- all adds up to performing substantial tasks free of charge. The author inspires us to measure and quantify our greatest achievements and to do what we do best. There are chapters on how to compare job offers for those who work and how to get an exceptional raise. Essentially, the author's strategies require that we track very carefully
all of our efforts so that the substantiation is present when we ask for a raise. The Pollan book will be helpful in focusing your career planning and on contemplating whether or not you should work for yourself or work for others.
