In its third edition, The Back Door Guide has become a "bible" of sorts for adventure seekers, college grads and career-changers who are not looking for full-time work, but rather want to enrich their lives with fun learning experiences that give them a new perspective on life and career. Michael's holistic approach to the whole job-hunting business offers a refreshing and increasingly important look at how we all should view our lives, decisions and careers. The book is chock-full of inspiring advice and quotes to live a balanced life that includes doing work that speaks to your real passion. This huge guidebook (ed.3 has over 400 pages!) helps you pursue your calling in 8 main areas, from adventure careers and working in the great outdoors, to artistic opportunities and working overseas. Michael's vast personal experience with back door adventures and his wealth of contacts are the final touches to making this resource guide the best in the field.
