In Advance: The Ultimate How-To Guide for Your Career, CEO Gary Burnison of management consulting firm Korn Ferry provides many actionable tips to break out of a professional dead-end and get on the road to success. Burnison is as entertaining as he is helpful, offering memorable anecdotes to illustrate his points. The book includes timeless advice common to the management genre, though Burnison also effectively covers today’s globalized and digitized workplace. Some of Burnison’s techniques are less helpful than others (he’s a bit overly fond of acrostic mnemonic devices), but readers will appreciate his checklists, self-quizzes and concrete examples.
