"Warning: Your career might be in danger of going off the rails. You probably have blind spots that are leaving you closer to the edge than you realize. Fortunately, Carter Cast has the solution.

You''ll recognize people you work with (maybe even yourself) in Captain Fantastic, the Solo Flyer, Version 1.0, the One-Trick Pony, and the Whirling Dervish, and, thanks to Cast''s insights, they won''t be able to trip up your future.
Carter Cast, a professor at Northwestern University''s Kellogg School of Management, was selected by his students three years running to receive the Faculty Impact Award.
