Glad to have purchased this!,
This review is from: Screw Work, Let's Play: How to Do What You Love and Get Paid for It (Paperback)It may not be completely original, but I really liked the overall concept and the many different ideas to start doing what you love using your network and why not, the help of technology. Even if a project does not turn out to be a career, it will still be something that makes you happy... and that counts!!
You can try a sample chapter in the official website.

One of the best books I have read in a long time,
This review is from: Screw Work, Let's Play: How to Do What You Love and Get Paid for It (Paperback)I just finished reading this book and its absolutely awesome! It has made a difference to my life, I have been thinking about "getting paid to play" for a while now and have been wondering how I would go about doing that. John has captured the factors that one needs to consider when making the jump from "worker" to "player" and it all makes loads of sense. I had several "aha" moments when I read this and feel energised to go ahead and make the big jump. This is an excellent book and I cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone looking to improve their life by getting up every morning to get paid for doing what they truly love.

This review is from: Screw Work, Let's Play: How to Do What You Love and Get Paid for It (Paperback)*****Update December 2012. I have been reading biographical information on the Penguinonline.com sales page for Australia and other sales pages about the author of this book. He claims in addition to his absolutely spectacular resume of top jobs, that he had seven years' experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
The biography does not state where and when he studied these subjects.
The author did run a 'creative coaching' practice for quite a number of years during the noughties called freestylesuccess.com.
I am very pleased to see that the author is these days an 'accredited coach' with an 'Advanced Diploma with Distinction' obtained from 'The Coaching Academy'. I am unable to locate their 'Advanced Diploma' course on their website, but that's probably just down to my usual ineptitude but I did note that one can obtain a certificate in coaching by doing a two day course there.*******
This book, which I have spead-read really told me... Read more
