What Thought Leaders Are Saying:
“This groundbreaking book identifies a new model of work and explains a future that’s already arrived.” – Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project
“Marci Alboher is the Walt Whitman of the new world of work. She realizes that we are large, that we contain multitudes. With deftly told stories and plenty of smart advice, Alboher shows how multiple professions and multiple identities can converge into a unified–and better–life. If what you do feels out of sync with who you are, this may be the most important book you read this year.” –Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive
What Readers Are Saying:
“I found One Person/Multiple Careers to be un-put-down-able.” – Nancy Weiser, Mom/Health counselor
“I found Ms. Alboher’s book to be thoroughly inspiring, well-written and nicely paced. As a fellow slash, perhaps I am biased, but after reading this, it’s hard to not feel a bit sorry for non-slashes. This should be required reading for all soon-to-be college graduates and anyone who is even remotely dissatisfied with their career. Bravo!” – Ryan Nerz, Brooklyn, NY
“It’s been awhile since I read a book that I wanted to recommend to career and business clients. This one makes the cut.” – Dr. Cathy Goodwin
“This is a fantastic book. As a lawyer, I’ve thought many times of quitting the practice of law. This book showed me that instead of leaving one career for another, I could simply become a slash. Since reading this book, I have made a career change. I recommend this book without hesitation to anyone looking to try a new career or simply put a new spin on their job.” – Noeleen Walder, New York, NY
