About the Author:

HARLOW GILES UNGER is a graduate of Yale University and the author of fifteen books, including the award-winning Lafayette, as well as biographies of John Hancock and Noah Webster. A veteran journalist, he was an editor at the New York Herald Tribune Overseas News Service in Paris and a foreign correspondent for the "Times" and the "Sunday Times," London.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up-- An excellent guide that carefully defines and relays the advantages and disadvantages of the ten basic kinds of vocational education. The in-depth analysis is clear, thorough, and will be helpful to students still in high school, recent graduates, and even dropouts. The subject is covered much more completely than in College, Yes or No? (Arco, 1983) by William F. Shanahan. Unger stresses researching and evaluating the quality of schools and courses and warns against disreputable institutions, giving wise paths of consideration to follow. He does not, despite the book's title, discount all college training, but simply traditional four-year degree programs. Good advice on how to pass the GED is given. Because the wage tables are from 1989, they are already dated. Descriptions of a variety of jobs in many career areas are included as well as agencies and organizations to contact for accreditation and other information, guidance for resume and letter preparation, and tips for successful interviewing. Unlike many other books on alternative education, this is not a hi/lo. It is written in an interesting, upbeat style that is as intellectually demanding as material prepared for the traditionally college-bound. A great choice for serious students who plan to follow a different route from their precollegiate peers. --Diane P. Tuccillo, Mesa Public Library, AZ
