Baruch is one of the most accomplished scholars in the Careers (and not only) field. With his first book (Managing Careers: Theory and Practice) he offered a very much needed evidence-based textbook about careers and their management (importantly, seen from the perspectives of both career actors and organizations). The new book (Managing Careers and Employability) incorporates the significant advancements in the field since the publication of the first book. It was much anticipated and continues in the path of the first publication: founded on up-to-date research, but at the same time acknowledging the realities of employers and those who are in employment and pursue careers. It is able to convey the knowledge in a way that is understood and useful to a variety of audiences, ranging from taught courses students to practitioners and careers scholars.
