Good book. Helpful for personal improvement and inspiration. It's not a step by step guide book, but the cases written in the book are very useful for people pursuing their dreams.

Treat your career as if it were a start-up business. Best practices and tips from Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. From the co-founder and chairman of LinkedIn.
