By A Customer on March 19, 2004
Format: Paperback
As someone in my 30s looking for a career change, I read this book and a few others in the series to look for ideas on what to do. I found this book simplistic, and didn't really get much out of it except a listing of more books and web sites to look at. I think this book may be aimed more at high schoolers, not adults. If you're a teenager, then this book might be good for you to learn about careers at hospitals, nursing homes, and day care centers. But if you're an adult, maybe just check this one out of the library.
