It’s Monday morning, and you wake up at 6 AM; you didn’t even have your first cup of coffee, and you already feel the whole week is going to be a disaster. You know you have to go to a job you hate and endure 40 hours of torture. You are doubtful whether you will make it through another week, and yet you are stuck in this hamster wheel.

Through this book Raj reveals his practical strategies to find your dream job, be massively successful in it, and uncover your rockstar potential, setting you miles apart from your competition. Using the tips, tricks, and tools discussed in this book, you can launch yourself into each opportunity and blast off with courage and confidence.
I started reading this book not because I was interested in changing careers, but because I’ve been in the mood for honest, truthful, and real self-help books. After all, we can always work on becoming our best selves. The title of the book attracted me to it initially. I liked the realness it portrayed. The author’s authenticity, ruggedness, and knowledge shine through in his writing.
This book isn’t just for finding your next job, this book can be used and applied to all aspects of our life. With the real-life examples the author gives us and the honest dialogue he has with you as the reader, the book hooks you in. It motivates you and pushes you, inspiring you to want to do more and become better.
Now if you are looking for a new job or are just embarking on your career search, I even more highly recommend this book. The advice and exercises provided throughout the book are real and practical solutions to increasing your chances of finding a job. Not only that, but the author provides examples of how they have used these very same strategies to advance their career and move in the direction they are currently headed.
Overall, this book inspired me. I even took the advice of some of the suggestions on becoming a rockstar in my field. I got inspired to revamp my LinkedIn profile and use it more. It felt like I WAS made for more. When I closed this book, I felt empowered.
