This well-written, well-organized, and helpful guide offers practical, realistic, and sage advice for the 43 million Americans with disabilities who face the open job market. Witt, a careers journalist, discusses job-search strategies and the self-assessment of realistic career and job skills that can enable and encourage disabled job seekers to put forth their best selves without discrimination. In 13 chapters, she also covers the legal implications of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and includes occupational surveys, interests surveys, job requirement competencies, a job accommodations study, and adaptive solutions. The three appendixes are a useful resource listing organizations, associations, agencies, and adaptive assistance. This is essential for all careers collections.-- Emily Ferren, Carroll Cty.
