The book mostly lists types of occupations in different categories. There is very little substance regarding HOW to switch careers without having to go back to school.

I've read many career books over the years, both for my own benefit, and for my work with clients and university courses I teach. If you have worked in a specific career for a number of years and want to move in a new direction without having to start over in a new field, this book can help you. You can leverage your work experience (skills, knowledge, social networks) and use it to launch a "sequel" career by moving into management, teaching, advocacy, communications, brokerage, or entrepreneurship. Let's say you're an engineer but want to make a change. You can draw from your knowledge of engineering (and the industry you've worked in) yet move in a new career direction by managing other engineers, teaching them, working for an advocacy organization (social benefit or policy research, lobbyist, professional association, public relations), shifting into a communications role (writer, blogger, newsbroadcaster, journalist, copywriter), becoming a broker who matches engineers with opportunities (everything from real estate, to finance, to companies), or an entrepreneur (start your own company or work at a start-up). This is a great book for generating ideas and getting unstuck. The book also provides Bureau of Labor Statistics details on expected job growth, average salaries, diversity balance, and the pros and cons of each "sequel" path and how well it matches your personality traits.
