Perversion of the Concept

I think that this book is a western perversion of a concept that was meant to help you find the simple joys of life by focusing on the things that make life worth living and turns it into a materialistic quest for money and fortune. That's not what Ikigai is about.

Generic

Has nothing about the Japanese concept and just very general how to pick a job information that every high school teaches.

not what I expected

I expected more personal insight but it was more career training. The text focused on job training and networking. not as focused as I thought.

Repetitive and basic

I'm confused as to why the author would insist on leaving a review so early in the book, actually pausing to encourage the listener to stop in that moment to leave a review.

So far the information has been incredibly repetitive and general. Maybe I need to re-listen but the ideas regurgitated are: get an education and it's best to wait until you have a new opportunity lined up before leaving your old job. I don't think anyone looking to pivot careers hasn't already considered this.

Testimonials of how other people have successfully changed careers would be helpful. So far, the tone is glum and the only useful information has been specific resources for personality and aptitude tests.

I hope it gets better in the second half.

Very basic

This was basic at best, patronising at worst and biased towards wanting to climb the ladder ‘ if only management would listen… way too narrow a path to explore. Might work for someone just starting out but as someone at a genuine crossroads this didn’t help at all. Excessively earnest narrator …
