About the Author:

HARLOW GILES UNGER is a graduate of Yale University and the author of fifteen books, including the award-winning Lafayette, as well as biographies of John Hancock and Noah Webster. A veteran journalist, he was an editor at the New York Herald Tribune Overseas News Service in Paris and a foreign correspondent for the "Times" and the "Sunday Times," London.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up—The advantages and disadvantages of 12 basic types of vocational programs are discussed in the opening section of this third edition. Unfortunately, oversimplification occurs throughout. For example, "The fact is there are only two good reasons for going to a four-year college or university." One is a desire to study traditional subjects; the other is that a career goal can only be reached by going this route. In the personal interview section, the author states, "Do well in it, and you'll probably be hired." No matter how well one does, competition is always a factor and it isn't really discussed. The book is organized in two parts, "Career Education-Alternative Routes to Success" and "Career Opportunities-and How to Find Them." Appendixes list accrediting associations; directories; employable skills; jobs, education, and pay; and cooperative-education programs. While the chapter "Getting Started in Your New Career" goes through writing resumes and cover letters, it offers only one example of each, hardly any discussion on Internet sites beyond Monster.com, and little advice ("It is unethical for you to copy more complex, sample cover letters and résumés...."). Readers might find helpful the charts that match up occupations with earnings and education through 2012. Additional purchase only.—Kelly Czarnecki, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg, NC
