Due to changes in the economy, many people have been forced to change jobs and learn how to reinvent themselves. Sharon Simpson, aka The Reinvention Diva, contacted me recently to ask me if she could review my book How to Reinvent Your Career. Sharon is a speaker, consultant and self-help guru who assists those that want to change habits and behaviors. The following is the article she wrote about my book.

How To Reinvent Your Career – Book Review
How to Reinvent Your Career – by Dr Diane Hamilton PhD
Dr Diane Hamilton’s book How to Reinvent Your Career is a holistic approach to finding and doing the job you love.
The first great thing I notice about this book is Dr Hamilton’s willingness to share personal experiences of how she reinvented herself (several times) to the position which she now holds.
Dr Diane Hamilton is a writer and a college professor teaching bachelor, master and doctoral-level business courses for six online universities. She kindly responded to my request to read and review her book in line with our focus here at The Reinvention Diva magazine on Career Reinvention.
The second great thing I found in her book is the systematic way she covers almost every aspect of change that would be involved in reinventing your career. There are ten chapters that cover everything from educating yourself to the right foods to eat to keep you healthy. From what to wear to your interview and taking a personality test. It is a well rounded 360º approach to the most important thing involved in change: YOU!
This book is about YOU, if you are serious about investing in your life, moving forward and learning whatever it is you need to live the life you want, I would suggest Dr Diane Hamilton’s book as an excellent place to start. And here’s why:
Dr Hamilton uses space at the end of each chapter to:
- Ask you important process questions
- Get you to do an exercise
- Conduct research
- Do some introspective questioningThis book is a manual for reinventing your career, Dr Hamilton has cleverly used her personal experiences to take us through the different stages of change. It is both practical, providing useful tips and suggestions and personal in that it encourages you to examine your emotional wellbeing, your fears, your health and life.I highly recommend this book. This book is written for the US market but applies on every level to any English speaking country.
Thank you Dr Diane Hamilton.
We hope we have provided you with what you need to reinvent your career. If you require further assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, our career advisor here at The Reinvention Diva magazine.
