My Review
5/5 Stars

A great, easy, fast read, and a great helper in finding what job you would enjoy due to your likings. I just graduated college and this book just landed on my lap. The White Shirt talks about lessons in life and how your family’s careers and your passions line up on what you’ll love as a career. You just need a plan and yes, this book gives you the plan; step by step.
One thing that I loved the most about this book is the question behind every chapter. The questions makes you reflect about a situation/event in your life.

The White Shirt website has quizzes you can take to determine your personality traits, and a workbook section at the end of the book so you can complete your new strategy in finding the perfect job for you.

Professional experience and background are always important when you choose someone to help you guide career transitions. You might also want to know a little about me personally. As a man of faith, I look through that lens for my own life while respecting the perspective others hold for theirs. I’m an active Rotarian and participate in its mission of community service. I’m also an avid outdoorsman. My wife Patricia and I make our home in Birmingham, Alabama, and own Riverbend, a bobwhite quail hunting preserve, located on the Black Warrior River.

We enjoy a richly blessed life with three children, five grandchildren and two bird dogs, Annie and Dinah.
