School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 7 Up-The first title covers everything from art directors to intellectual property lawyers. The second book profiles fashion designers, florists, and silverware artisans. The two titles overlap where designers are involved in the computer field. For each position, the authors include a brief overview and its history. Discussions of education, certifications, or licensing required; a detailed job description; salary; and the future outlook are also supplied. A helpful "Quick Facts" box at the beginning of each new career helps readers discover the basic requirements and personal skills necessary. Both titles present much information without becoming overwhelming. Although similar to the Occupational Outlook Handbook (JIST) in many ways, these books go one step further and provide places to contact to obtain more information. A brief interview with someone working in the field is also a fine feature. These helpful guides are easy to use and clearly written, and they open windows, if not doors, to professions that teens might be interested in pursuing.-Lori Matthews, Loyola School, New York City Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
