99 Ways to Build Job Security is part of a series of books by Waterbrook Press that all begin with "99 Ways to . . ." They're affordable, quick reads that dispense common-sense advice on a certain topic. In seven chapters, each tidbit of advice is actually numbered 1-99. This book is meant to help the reader analyze work performance and attitudes that make an employee valuable to an employer. Things like enthusiasm, professionalism, keeping up-to-speed on the latest technology, working well with colleagues, etc. Each chapter begins with a scripture reference, which I like. Honestly, the advice is pretty common sense, common knowledge type information. I think it's meant to be used more as a personal evaluation tool to look for any areas in which you might need to work on. I know my DH already practices all these things in his job, so it's not exactly the kind of major changes he can make to preserve his career. I think this book would probably make a nice stocking stuffer for a recent high school or college graduate just beginning in their careers.
