Reviewed with Kerry Hinton's Cool Careers without College for Music Lovers.
Gr. 7-12. On-the-job experience and practical high-school courses are the keys to the professions outlined in books in the Cool Careers without College series. The series title is a little misleading. Although none of the jobs requires a four-year degree, some call for adult education courses, an associates' degree, or completion of a certification program. Each volume introduces careers that tap into a range of skills. Hinton describes the job of retail clerk, music promoter, and audio engineer; Hayhurst introduces careers in animal photography, pet grooming, and animal wrangling. The chapters provide a solid understanding of training and day-to-day responsibilities of each job, but details on salary and job outlook are vague. The writing is accessible for both middle- and high-school students, though the large typeface may turn off some older readers. Books in the series are good first steps for students not planning on college but wanting to explore their options. The resources listed at the end of each chapter (nicely annotated in the music volume, but not in the animal one) will take readers to the next level. Stock color photos are scattered through the texts. Other titles in the series appear in the Series Roundup in this issue. Randy Meyer
