Book Review: The Pathfinder: by Nicholas Lore

The Pathfinder

The Pathfinder: How to Choose or Change your Career for a Lifetime of Satisfaction and Success is a book by Nicholas Lore that was originally published in 1998. Now that it is in its 24th printing, Simon and Schuster recently released a revised and updated version in both paperback and eBook formats.

Nicholas Lore wrote The Pathfinder at a time when career-based self-help books were a dime a dozen. However, most of those self-help books from the late nineties and early aughts have not survived to be reissued more than twenty times. What is different about The Pathfinder and why is it so enduringly popular?

Part of the success of The Pathfinder lies in its clear and compassionate message that anyone can have a fulfilling career if they do the proper planning. Instead of inundating you with messages about Zen-like calm and “the Laws of the Universe” to account for why you have not yet settled into a career that satisfies you, The Pathfinder takes a step-by-step approach to designing the career you want.
