From Booklist:

The long-running Careers in Focus series adds two more fine volumes to help young people narrow down their career possibilities. In each title, an introduction gives a general idea of the types of jobs found in a broad area followed by short chapters, which break down the details of what it takes to do a specific job. Each section discusses the type of tasks someone in that job does, the education requirements, employers who hire people in the field, where the job takes place (indoors, outdoors, etc.), and the all-important earnings information on how much one could expect to make at first and after advancement. In Meteorology, potential careers include being an aviation meteorologist following weather conditions that affect flying and landing plans, to being an equipment designer or a storm spotter. The format is clean and the writing clear and down-to-earth, giving students a realistic glimpse into what it might be like to have these jobs and what they need to do now to work toward them. Grades 7-12. --Susan Dove Lempke
