• How to Stress Less: Simple Ways to Stop Worrying and Take Control of Your Future, by Benjamin Bonetti: There are a lot of sources of stress in the professional world. Take Bonetti’s advice and learn how to control your future so you won’t have to worry so much.
• What Color Is Your Parachute? 2015: A Practical Manual for Job-Hunters and Career-Changers, by Richard N. Bolles: This comically named book is an annually updated guide to the current state of the job market. It is helpful for anyone who is evaluating a career and considering future job changes.
