Who is this book for?
Surviving IT is written for any tech industry professional who feels stuck, is struggling in their career, or starting to feel that they just aren’t suited to work in the tech industry. If you’re looking to start a new career in the IT industry, I am confident you will also learn a lot from this book to get off to a great start in your career. Job titles in the tech industry are extremely varied, so whether you call yourself an IT pro, a developer, or any other title, this book was written with you in mind.
Who is this book not for?
If you already love your job, lead a healthy and balanced life, and feel in control of where your career is heading, then this book is probably not for you. However, you might gain some insights into the struggles that others are experiencing, which may help you to support your friends and colleagues as they build their own careers.
Which edition should I buy?
That depends on how you prefer to read. The direct download option gives you a PDF file (suitable for PC’s and large tablets) and an EPUB file (suitable for smaller tablets and smartphones). The Kindle edition can be read from any Kindle device, Kindle app, or the Kindle web reader. The print edition is available for those of you who prefer to read physical books.
Why are you offering a “read online” option?
I appreciate that not everyone is in a financial situation where they can afford to buy books, even books that will help them to grow their career. I would prefer that those who are struggling the most are still able to get the help they need.
So I can get read the whole book for free?
Yes, if you feel that you can’t afford to buy the book, you can simply read it online. However, if you want to support my work here, then I appreciate any amount you would like to pay. The book took me over a year to write, and I invested my own funds in professional editing and design work. So while my first priority is helping as many people as possible, it would be nice if the book sales also recouped those expenses for me.
Will this book guarantee me a job?
No. All I can give you is advice and guidance. It’s up to you to take action. But I’m confident that you will find actionable advice in this book to help you decide what to do next.
Is there a money-back guarantee?
Yes. If you buy the book from Amazon, you have their normal money-back guarantee. If you buy directly from this website, I will refund your purchase within the first 60 days if you answer one simple question – how could I have made the book better for you?
Will you tell me what skills and certifications I should pursue?
No. This is not a technical training guide. You won’t find a list of technical skills to learn, certification exams to study for, or hot new technologies to master. The industry moves too fast. This book would be out of date within a year. Instead, what you’ll learn are the timeless strategies that you can use to build, grow, and maintain a successful career, no matter which technologies come along in the future.
