This is an entirely different kind of career book by two guys who decided that all the standard career paths just werent for them. So what did they do about? They didnt just buckle down and give up no, they set out on a roadtrip to find out what else was really out there. The good news? You dont have to do the same thing&you can just benefit from their research.

Included in the book are interviews with a diverse group of business people youve got everything from the lawyer that gave Erin Brochovich her start to the manager of the Michael Jordan brand (yeah, theres a guy whos job it is to do just that who knew?). Each section includes the road map of the interview, which shows just how many options/choices each of us have. Some went to college; some didnt. Some did the expected; some didnt.

Also included are tips on how to get in and talk to people you thought youd never have a chance at interviewing. Mike & Nathan give the scoop on how they did what they did&after all, you didnt think just anybody could pick up the phone to talk to the Chairman of Starbucks, did you?

Perhaps the best advice in the book comes from Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell Computers. He says Dont be afraid to fail because thats usually when you learn. But, youll find many other tidbits of information that can help you on your way. I know I learned a few things, though I guess Im lucky enough to actually know what I want to do when I grow up. ;-)

Recommended for readers aged 14 and up or anyone questioning their current career path. Yep, thats right anyone can find the right road if theyre willing to just get out there and do a bit of traveling.
