Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
For those just beginning to think about careers, or brainstorming ideas about a career change, this series offers an interest-based approach. For those who possess a sharp mind, the title on geniuses describes careers in biology, medicine, agriculture, the physical sciences, invention, engineering, computer science and math, music, and art. It describes what various specialists do, with profiles of different practitioners and information on the education and training required, earnings, and organizations to contact for further information. The Homebodies title tells about options for those interested in a home-based business such as home-based franchises, consulting and freelancing, and communications and design specialists, with profiles of individuals and lists of resources, including magazines and Web sites, for more information. The Scholars title looks at jobs in such fields as anthropology, library science, archeology, psychology, and animal behaviorism, while the Animal Lovers book offers ideas for working in shelters, as a vet or an animal trainer, conserving wildlife, and more. The authors of these new additions to an ongoing series are professional career writers (and one interviews another in the book on homebodies!), but the lengthy quotes from people working in the fields described help to give a good sense of the different professions. The books are brief and easy to read, and they offer an interesting way to start thinking about possible career paths. For schools and public libraries.
