ENCORE CAREER HANDBOOK IN THE NEWS

In this short New York Times piece, Encore Career Handbook author Marci Alboher tells about her own career switch and her quest to understand better the urge to make a difference in the second half of life.

The Associated Press called The Encore Career Handbook an "invaluable resource" for experienced workers looking for careers with purpose. Chris Farrell, syndicated finance columnist and economics correspondent of public radio's Marketplace, calls the book "an engaging, practical guide to thinking about transitions."
