Synopsis: Book by Gartner, Robert
From School Library Journal:
Gr 6 Up--Satisfactory overviews of the targeted career areas. Gartner carefully explains what environmental science is, its importance, and career options related to it. The brief sampling of jobs includes various technical positions that require some or no college, and others that do require degrees, such as air-quality engineer, forester, lawyer, and agronomist. There is valuable advice on gaining experience and testing the waters through part-time work and volunteering. Health Care defines a variety of medical-career options with salary ranges. An odd inclusion is the veterinary field, which usually has a separate focus. This book uses personal accounts effectively to illustrate points, a technique little used in Environmental Science. Both titles include helpful glossaries. The indexes, unfortunately, contain numerous errors. Black-and-white and full-color photographs support the writing and add interest. Further reading suggestions are mostly acceptable, though both volumes list titles from 1973. These series entries look juvenile with their slim format and large, dark print. They seem to be potential hi/lo, though the reading levels do not warrant that designation. And the ``Questions to Ask Yourself'' at the end of each chapter seem gratuitous. Barbara Swanson's Careers in Health Care (VGM, 1995) has a drier style but is packed with information. The New Complete Guide to Environmental Careers (Island, 1993) is upbeat but likewise contains more information. Jane Kinney and Michael Fasulo's Careers for Environmental Types and Others Who Respect the Earth (VGM, 1993) is similar to Gartner's title but has a more mature appearance.
