Review: The Adventures of Johnny Bunko by Daniel Pink

Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, recently released his new book The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need.  There was much hype about this book here and here, and I got a gift certificate so I decided to pick up the book.

The book is written in manga style which is essentially Japanese comic book style.  I loved it.  It took me all of about an hour or so to read it.  It was engaging and fun & if you really pay close attention, you might just learn something.

Daniel highlights the six things that will help you to move up in your career or to stay passionate about what you really want to do.  They seem simple, and full of common sense, but sometimes we just lose sight of these things.  Here they are:

  1. There is no plan – nothing is so scripted that it can't change
  2. Think strengths, not weaknesses – very Marcus Buckingham & Tom Rath – do what you do best
  3. It's not about you – put others first
  4. Persistence trumps talent – talent only takes you so far, sometimes you just gotta hang in there
  5. Make excellent mistakes – if you are going to make a mistake (and you will) learn from them
  6. Leave an imprint – people will remember you – make an impression

Fantastic read, I recommend it highly.  For more info, check out their website.

  1. Dave —
    Thanks for the kind words about JOHNNY BUNKO. Much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the book. Glad, too, you read it in under an hour. That was our goal — fast, fun, memorable.
    Cheers,
    Dan Pink
    BTW, where did you get that exercise log widget? Haven’t seen that before.

  2. Dan thanks for dropping by the site. The widget is not actually a widget but rather just created it in Typepad with a little HTML that update whenever I exercise. I am still sifting thru your other book (A Whole New Mind) and look forward to seeing how that can relate to my work with Facilities.
