PLAN YOUR CAREER - 20 GOLDEN RULES. John Lockett, Orion Books £9.99

One of this publisher's new 'career powertools' series, Lockett's punchy text is both lucid and challenging. While the book's sharp, businesslike tone will intimidate some readers, it is sure to prove encouraging to others. Shame about the very stiff covers and the reader-unfriendly narrow format. **

PLANNING A NEW CAREER, Judith Johnstone, How To Books £9.99

This clear and concise book focuses on all the key issues that job changers need to think about. It opens well: the inviting contents page lists the key questions: 'Who am I?', 'How do others see me?', 'Can I afford to change jobs?' A very good read. ***

CAREER SHIFT, Bridget Wright, Piatkus Books £9.99

Twice as long as the other career guides featured, Wright's book takes a decidedly more considered look at the fundamentals of jobs and careers. The meditative tone may grate at times, but for those of a more analytical temperament this might just be the book to launch them on to new career heights. **
