Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This look at up-and-coming career opportunities is part of a series of Lifestyle titles, whose claim to fame is that they are reviewed for accuracy by a panel of experts. The author herself is a motivational speaker and career specialist. She takes an upbeat approach to job-hunting in the first few chapters, with lots of bulleted advice on marketing yourself and sidebars providing tips and quotes throughout. The bulk of the book is devoted to brief descriptions of booming careers, from lawyer to personal trainer to romance novelist to Webmaster, divided into sections like "Hot Careers in Helping and Healing," with profiles of jobs in law enforcement, teaching, health care (including alternative medicine), and geriatrics; "For Talented and Creative People," suggesting careers in writing, art, advertising, TV and radio; "Hot Careers Serving Others," such as travel and hospitality and retailing; "Computers, Information, and Technology," including the environment, the sciences, and engineering; and "Careers Everyone Wants," such as running a home business, working in sports, with animals, or as an entertainer. Appendices include a glossary, a resource guide listing organizations, statistics on employment, and lists of Web sites. The chatty approach here, along with the many easy-to-read lists, make this a user-friendly first step for teens looking for career ideas. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, IDG Books Worldwide, 538p, bibliog, index, 21cm, $15.95. Ages 16 to adult.
