From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up—For readers who feel that working in a cubicle eight hours a day is not part of their career plan, these titles offer alternative suggestions. Adventurers discusses opportunities in fields as varied as logging, crime-scene cleanup, volcano studies, and white-water rafting. The pitfalls and perks as well as ways in which to get a head start on other applicants are noted. Someone in each area is profiled. Creative People includes gravestone carver, balloon artist, and video-game designer. In Agriculture and Nature, the need for a love of the outdoors is emphasized in a variety of occupations. Each volume has an appendix listing related associations, organizations, and Web sites, and a useful bibliography is also included. For students in a quandary about future career possibilities these volumes are both valuable and interesting.—Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY
