An appealing read which carries a warning to all young people; read this and be prepared to be amazed at what you can achieve in life! Dr Jayne Sayers What Rocks Your World is a vibrant book that stands out clearly from other books in this market. It has a lively and accessible style that is easy to pick up and engage with. I can readily see undergraduate students finding this book as useful as A-level students will, with its particular focus on the individual and aiming for them to look at themselves. The interactive Twitter challenges give the book an edge of reader-friendly interaction while allowing them to engage in reflection as well as the public expression of their thoughts and ideas - something that they must prepare to do if going to Higher Education Institutions and Universities. One particular strength of this book is that it focuses on enjoyment - students are often placed on the treadmills of 'personal and professional development' and 'portfolio development' while in Further and Higher education - and the emphasis of this book is clearly to get young people to think about what they enjoy, their own talents and what they are good at. The message here is clearly that if the reader thinks about it and reflects on their own life, 'business can be their pleasure, and pleasure can be their business'. I would be happy to see my undergraduate students reading this book as it may open their eyes to many more career paths than they may think they have.
