The best value career book ever

Book Description

We've got TV celebrities, radio celebrities, celebrity doctors, TV non-celebrities, 'experts', chefs and celebrity weather reporters all telling us how we can look and feel better and be more successful in every aspect of the little bit of life we've got left after ploughing through their endless (and usually conflicting) advice. "Infinite Ideas" introduces three new brilliant books, which cut a path through this jungle of self-congratulatory verbiage to get straight to some real-world ideas from people who've been there and done it - real people. These books are collections of the best advice from a range of specialist writers. And they come in an amazing package - 52 brilliant ideas in 256 pages of glorious colour. They are of unbeatable value!
