Title The 5 Patterns of Extraordinary Careers
Authors James M. Citrin and Richard A. Smith
Citrin and Smith draw upon extensive experience in executive recruiting (and we're talking CEO searches for _big_ companies here!) to describe the career patterns for high-level executives. Not really my career path, but people who are interested in rising to the top through a mix of potential-based promotions (up) and experience-based promotions (generally sideways) will do well to read this book.
