The get ready, get going guide to navigating career change and doing work you love! New York Times bestselling author Jon Acuff has drawn millions of online fans who love his refreshing mix of humor, honesty, and wisdom about the world of work. Now he offers his most important book yet, a guide to making big career changes—by choice or necessity—and escaping the horrible feeling of being trapped in the wrong job. Acuff finds it amazing that people spend more than eighteen years studying and preparing for college but little or no time honing their careers between graduation and retirement. He offers an empowering tool he calls the Career Savings Account, which will change the way you think about your skills, relationships, character, and work ethic. He also shows that if you’re on the wrong track, you already have what you need to change it—even if your family and mortgage mean you can’t simply pick up and move for a new opportunity. Throughout the book, Acuff features inspiring and funny true stories—not merely his own but those of friends who restarted their careers after a layoff, an extended maternity leave, or simply the realization that they were suffering fifty weeks a year just to pay the bills and enjoy two weeks of vacation. Everyone can benefit from Do Over, from new graduates to fiftysomethings and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Do Over is an energetic, user-friendly guide to navigating the jumps, bumps, and ceilings that we all face in our careers.” Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author
Do Over is funny, insightful, and well-written. Three reasons I resent Jon Acuff.” Jim Gaffigan, comedian
“If you’re sick of constantly fighting the Monday blues, this book is for you…[Acuff’s] career advice is solid…By the end, most will have a new outlook on their role in the workplace. They will be ready to take on the day with nothing but an adjusted attitude and a ton of grit.” Associated Press
“In this lively business manual, Acuff sets readers on the path to ‘intentionally building a career’ using a tool kit he calls the Career Savings Account…Brimming over with sound, practical advice, this book will benefit individuals looking to take charge of their careers at any stage.” Publishers Weekly
“This is the best career book ever written. I’m not even sure what book comes in second. This is practical, human, touching, urgent, vulnerable, universal, actionable truth, all in a well-written, handy package.” Seth Godin, author of What to Do When It’s Your Turn
“Acuff offers advice on how to navigate career jumps, bumps, ceilings, and opportunities by building what he calls a career savings account or CSA. He defines CSAs as relationships built over the years plus skills and character times hustle…Acuff…offers advice on cultivating each element with the clear purpose of restarting careers rather than sticking with the drudgery of a job just to pay the bills. An amusing and insightful look at careers.” Booklist
