Don't stay stuck in a job you hate - let this book help you escape The Success Trap.

  • Even for those not blessed with a grounding dose of self-doubt, the career success that seems for a while only to breed success can suddenly also bring burnout, a loss of the creative urge or a reluctance to strike out in new directions. By helping you through this high-achiever paradox, Amina Aitsi-Selmi can show you how to rekindle that sense of true purpose that gets the best out of you and all those who work around you.
