This one is brought to you by the creators of WhoWhatWear, so you know it’s going to be good.

An aesthetically-pleasing hardback (would you expect anything less?), The Career Code shares practical advice and life hacks more relevant than any self-help book you may have read.

It also comes in the beautifully easy-to-digest format of lists. Lists!

Dishing advice for all stages of your career, it starts early at finding what you want from work, and kicks all the way up to management.

With enough pearls of wisdom to string Daisy Buchanan’s wedding necklace (that’s a Baz Luhrmann reference FYI), this is one to keep on your desk and flick through on the reg.
