Review:

"One of the 25 books that have shaped readers' lives."
CENTER FOR THE BOOK, LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
. . . one of the first job-hunting books on the market. It is still arguably the best. And it is indisputably the most popular.
"FAST COMPANY"
"What Color Is Your Parachute? "is about job-hunting and career-changing, but it s also about figuring out who you are as a person and what you want out of life.
" TIME"
Ideally, everyone should read "What Color Is Your Parachute? "in the tenth grade and again every year thereafter.
" FORTUNE"
This is a fantastic tool useful to almost everyone. . . . It s so darn useful because it is about more than just finding a job.
--Kevin Kelly, Author of Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities
