I hate not finishing books Hate hate hate In fact I find it physically painful I wish I had good things to say about this book I had high hopes that s for sure It came at a highly appropriate time in my life I love NPR I appreciate the topic Tess Vigeland is great But it really just fell flat for me A great career self helpinspirational book is hard to achieve It takes finesse global thinking and specificity Leap had none of that Instead the book fell victim to many of the stereotypical problems this genre of book can gave mainly falling victim to navel gazingThe book spent so much time talking about the author her feelings her history and mostly how great she really is that I put down the book about a third of the way through and haven t found it in myself to pick it back up While I can totally understand that the emotional turmoil caused by leaving a job means having to find the kind of inner purpose your job once gave you I m not sure the right place for working through those feelings is in the book It isn t a place to so forthrightly ask for your readers to like you which is what essentially this felt like to meI ll leave it at thatBee Tee Dubs I received a copy of this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review But as usual this girl has got some opinions on her and they re all my own

Leap by Tess Vigeland Download Û 100 Until recently Tess Vigeland was a longtime host with public radio's Marketplace; it was a rewarding high status job and Tess was very good at it but she'd begun to feel restless Without any definite clear sense of what she wanted to do next but an absolute certainty that what she'd been doing was no longer truly satisfying she walked away from her dream job and into a vast unknown Suddenly she was no longer “Marketplace’s Tess Vigeland” she was just Tess Vigeland For the multitude of Americans who change jobs mid career by choice or circumst. This book is by Tess Vigeland formerly of Marketplace the NPR finance showOn the whole I found the book engaging and a relatively uick read Vigeland whose work I knewknow from her reporting is smart funny and intuitive on many levels and those attributes show through in the book itselfThis book is and should have been sold and in fact directly written as a memoir than as what it purports to be given the title something of a how to book That it is really not Vigeland is a journalist who thought she wanted to go into TV broadcasting but ended up finding her passion and love in radio She is a very ambitious person and from her own description got into one job and immediately started thinking about her next steps She is clearly talented had a devoted following and moved easily from place to place until she landed what she describes as her dream job at Marketplace at the age of 32 the timeframes in the book are muddled so this is approximateThe story revolves around her departure from Marketplace a job she loved a great deal but at which she clearly became frustrated after working there for what I believe was 11 years again muddled timelines sort of scattered throughout the book She never comes out and says it which I think was a bit disingenuous but it appears that she left because despite many achievements it was made clear to her she would never become the host of Marketplace I can understand on one level that she in fact would be hesitant to write critically about NPR and public radio management structures because then her book might not be reviewed andor receive an interview on NPR stations and indeed it was on Marketplace that I heard her interviewed about her book Nonetheless it seems that there are deeper issues here about how NPR is led and managed or at least about how some public radio stations in the small world of public radio are managed that would have been illuminating as part of this memoir which see above is what it should really have beenI liked the book for its examination of work identities and its challenge to traditional career counseling sorts of stuff as Vigeland interviews a number of thinkers on the subject and those who she does have very different views about how to take a leap from one thing to another That said this is not really an advice book because those aspects of the book are too superficial and too tied up with Vigeland s own story Moreover the other personal stories she tells also are told on a superficial levelOne thing I both liked about and also got a bit tired of in the book was Vigeland s repeated admission of her need for the limelight and for external approval On one hand she was extremely honest about herself in this way and let s face it ego is involved in our work for many of us and to be honest about that is not only refreshing it s okay But that theme kept coming up so many times throughout the book without real examination of why she needed so much external validation it did at times feel repetitive andor self serving On the other hand there is a lot in her own story and in some of the others she tells that provide food for thought for those of us myself included who are always thinking about the future and the other lives I could live I don t think there is any one recipe for finding the career and life you really want there is floundering and uncertainty and courage and sticking to it and being able to get through the bad parts So I can t totally fault the book on the score of not providing what it s title implies That said it would have been better I think as a memoir with some further and deeper reflection on Vigeland s own career some honesty about the things she faced and some deeper introspection about how she got where she is now than you will find

Leap by Tess Vigeland Download Û 100 Without my job” She shares the accounts of people who struggled with this uestion before and after they took their own leap of faith and ended up finding out about themselves than they’d thought possible Success doesn’t have to be measured by salary or a traditional career path as so many of us are conditioned to think but by your own happiness and fulfillment  Part memoir and part field guide this book offers a funny thoughtful and provocative look at how to find satisfaction and success when pursuing a career less ordinary         . An engaging read This is not a How To book but rather a look at the ups and downs of taking a leap I read it after taking my own leap last year and ending up back at the same job I wanted to read something that would give me some faith in putting myself back out there and I think this book gave me some of thatThat being said Tess left a job she really loved and keeps sort of coming back to For me I keep trying to leave an industry I don t like but seem stuck in There s definitely a difference there for sure But I think even taking that into account it s a good read to give you the feeling that there are other options and maybe you re not as stuck as you think Whether you take a leap or not
