This book made me think, it made me squirm, and it also made realize that too many of my assumptions about how to get a job — or in my case, how to advise Stanford students who are looking for jobs — are wrong or half-wrong.

    What is it like to be getting all these (well earned, deserved) accolades? Do you find you need to work to accept this wonderful genuine praise? How do you manage fame and fortune while keeping the common touch – not getting silly, uppity, or carried away with toxic notions about self or others?

    I sometimes battle the urge to push away thoughtful, kind, and generous comments and feedback on my work or contributions. It’s from this place that I asked these questions.

    Thnx from yer pal in Atlanta and Tel Aviv

    Hi, Tamar. I really appreciate the reviews. They make me happy. Taking a look at the comments on Yahoo, or cleaning up the dining room floor after dinner with the kids keeps things in perspective :)Penelope
