Review:

1990 was the twentieth anniversary year for What Color Is Your Parachute. P ' a book that sets the standard for job-search manuals. The 1991 edition sticks with the format that insured its reputation, with more than 4,000,000 copies now sold. Outlining a system that breaks down jobhunting into such steps as determining one's natural abilities, identifying suitable jobs, making contacts, conducting interviews, the book's method enables the reader to search effectively for a job. The book includes extensive lists of additional resource material, up-dated each year. One might not agree with all of the author's ideas (his disdain of resumes is overdone, and his style is too flippant) but generally he gives the clear guidance needed by the average person who doesn't possess job-hunting skills. Over half the book now consists of appendices. These range from a timely section for job-hunters with disabilities to an essay on the religious approach to career guidance. The latter, with its admitted pro-Christian slant, seems a little removed from strictly personnel considerations. However the author claims the section produces the most reader response (presumably favorable). Perhaps happiness at work requires choosing a career that integrates with one's philosophy of life. If so, this book is a good guide toward that goal. -- From Independent Publisher
