Overall, I think this is an excellent resource for anyone pursuing a career as a librarian. As a library school student, I think she does a very accurate and honest job of telling you what it is like and her tips for school survival are great. If she is this good at describing the school experience, I think it is safe to assume her advice and discussion for the actual work of being a librarian is accurate as well. I recommend it to anyone thinking about pursing their MLIS.

As someone who doesn't know much about Library and Information Science, except that it seems like an interesting field to go into, I was pleased to find that this book provides a not too overwhelming overview of aspects of the profession, issues facing the profession, how to get your degree, things to consider in grad school, and lists of helpful websites. This was just what I needed.

This book offers nice information and thoughts on thinking about becoming a librarian. Unfortunately it is very repetitive and could have used some more editing before publishing. (Typos!!!)

At one point I considered library work as opposed to working for a literacy non-profit in a library setting. The first few pages were so elementary that I could not keep my eyes on the pages. My mind wandered and I had to wonder if this book would offer me any guidance. I already have a B.A.Ed. and an M.A.J. Perhaps suited more for someone starting their search for life's calling rather than someone considering a switch to a more exciting, or purposeful career.
