“This book is for you.” For any ‘what if’ situation that anyone could have about the future and all of its uncertainty, this book promises answers. What Color is Your Parachute? is a book all about helping the reader understand who they are, how they tick, and what career best features both. Right from the jump, Richard N. Bolles and Mel Foster prove they know what they’re talking about. With a brief but very effective summary of how job-hunting works and why, and the cycle it can become, the book smoothly moves the reader, well engaged and fully interested at this point, into a comprehensible explanation of the job-market, job-hunting and getting what you want from both.

Part of the book’s continued fame is its interactive material. Throughout, there can be found exercises designed specifically to help the reader better understand themselves. One is the Flower Diagram. Filling this out is supposed to help the reader realize their ideal career, to the very last detail.

5 out of 5 Spurs.
