I am so excited that Karen has written this book! It really resonates and strikes me as something that would appeal to academics at all stages of their careers who are searching for something more than what they've seen as the available options. Karen's is a much-needed voice in the academy, helping individuals to trust themselves rather than outside structures and "experts" alone. Her approach begins by challenging dominant ways of thinking about the PhD job search and career options. I love the idea of "careering" as a dynamic process, not an outcome. But Karen doesn't stop with the big ideas, as transformative as they are: she also provides a unique combination of practical strategies. My husband and I know first hand from working with her that the combination works wonders, inside and out.
