"For thousands of Americans Shoya Zichy’s landmark 276 page masterpiece, “Career Match” may have simultaneously squelched the wretched specter of unemployment and brought career satisfaction to those who sing the blues at a time when their nation’s economy has been sporting a historically rosy complexion...The most compelling reason for reading this book and why we are bringing it to the attention of TravelSmart readers is that “Career Match” makes it easier for anyone who wants to squeeze the most out of their life experience to do just that. That’s why I bought copies for each of my children (all over 40 now). If they can get as much out of the book as I did they’ll be grateful for the rest of their lives. ''

The section that describes the possible job matches could be expanded a little also to include some not so obvious jobs, especially related to government fields. What this author does rather well is describing the very positive qualities the differing temperaments possess (very helpful for building a resume) and describing the weaknesses too.
The bonus is that "Career Match" is fun to use, fun to read...and the words that the author uses to describe each different personality style can be immediately incorporated into the reader's own vocabulary about him/herself. Job seekers needs accurate words to describe their strengths; this book provides them, and makes the difference between applicants who stumble when speaking about themselves, and articulate, confident applicants. The "Career Match" 10-minute exercises are the fastest and easiest to take and score, the results are unerringly correct, and the information is comprehensive for the job search and totally useful. Plus, the book doesn't resort to psycho-babble, and it doesn't depend upon having a certified consultant to interpret the results, so anyone can pick it up and immediately benefit from it. Cheers to Shoya Zichy and her co-author for putting together a completely enjoyable and marvelously helpful book!
