" I was so impressed with The Career Catapult, that I couldn't put it down easily -- It's intriguing, insightful, useful and very readable. Your examples are really well done and they come to life in different ways. My favorites so far are Leila and, of course, Sree! What I like best about the approach is that, while recognizing the financial side of "personal success", you consistently make it clear "between the lines" that career success is about a lot more than just the money."
Jon Katzenbach best-selling author of Teams at the Top, Wisdom of Teams, etc.
