Self-management is rapidly becoming the hottest topic for the 1990s, especially as the massive horde of baby boomers mature and experience career frustration. Hollander joins this already saturated field with an interesting and unique twist. She explains the matrix of work preference and competence--the unfortunate "doom" state (when one's career no longer appeals or challenges)--and provides helpful hints on how to identify your skills and talents that may prepare you for your "capstone" (ideal) career. Numerous checklists, step-by-step guides, and discussion of organizational culture/politics help make this more than another superficial gloss-over of well-known principles. Less complex than Richard Bolles's What Color Is Your Parachute? ( LJ 6/1/73) but more pragmatic than Marsha Sinetar's Do What You Love, the Money Will Follow ( LJ 5/1/87), this is recommended for collections weak in this area.- Dale Farris, Groves, Tex.
