Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Each guide provides readers with a solid, comprehensive view of the work environments that exist for a wide variety of jobs. In the book on art, for example, interested teens can investigate the worlds of antique and art dealers, fashion designers, illustrators, jewelers, graphic designers, photographers, teachers, and museum curators. Each job gets a thorough treatment, including an overview, a history, training and education requirements, earnings, and outlook. Often, actual practitioners are interviewed for a more in-depth look at the career. The end results are books that give teens a good foundation for understanding a given profession and their possible place within it. Excellent additions to career collections.-Carol Jones Collins, Columbia High School, Maplewood, NJ Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
