Absolutely great! the Life of Johnny Bunko is not for the faint of heart in the world you wish to make yourself better in. Ultimately, what I learned from this quick, funny and amazing tale (though I have been doing this for some time in my life in all that I do) is to "Leave an Imprint." 5/5 Stars from me. ;)

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko is a quick, fun valuable guide to thinking about career choices and how to find work that is fulfilling and meaningful. The graphic novel format seemed gimmicky at first, but then I thought of the "leadership fables" of Ken Blanchard and Patrick Lencioni, and the younger target audience for the book, and suddenly it made perfect sense. As in A Whole New Mind, Pink does a great job of taking deep, complicated concepts, and making them pithy and accessible. With lessons like "It's not about you" and "Make excellent mistakes," I can see why TAoJB is required reading for the leadership institute at which I'll be serving as a mentor next month. For anyone who is struggling in what feels like a dead end job, or anyone who needs a reminder why they got into their chosen career in the first place, the book delivers on the promise of its subtitle: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need.

I really enjoyed reading this manga-style career guide. I've never read any manga before. This book is an extremely succinct and clear guide to those who feel lost in the world of work. It would be especially useful for teenagers to read when they feel uncertain about what direction to take while still in school. Although I'm quite happy in the field that I've chosen (medicine), I found reading this useful from a parenting point of will help me to guide my children as they journey on their path. It may seem vague to some, but I think the point is to give some overarching guidelines for people to follow, rather than specifics about a certain field of work.
