    I Also Recommend:

    Good start for figuring out interests, but don't base your entire career on it...

    Easy to read, interesting examples, and helps to organize one's interests into a coherent, easy to understand snapshot.

    The book utilizes various assessments as individual measures of interests; the assessments are then compiled into a master summary for easy reference.

    This book is useful in conjunction with other career and interest inventory books to compare and contrast results.
