    I have an older version of this book. I’d like to take a look at the current version and plan to do so soon. I’m interested in taking another look because I have a friend who’s interested in a new career and I thought this series might help him.

    This particular book was the one that put me on the path to my career in publishing. I was lost, in and out of college, switching majors every semester, until I had to settle on one or drop out. So, I dropped out and got a “pass-the-time” job. While I was thinking about returning to school, I was browsing in a bookstore one day. Somehow, I found the career/reference section, and found this book, which seemed to be written just for me! I am a bookworm! It brightened my day. It wasn’t so in-depth, but perfect for someone who might need to explore several possibilities when they are a lost soul. It let me a most important thing: most careers for bookworms start with an English degree. There I was, found. You may think that’s common sense, but not all of us are common-sensical. Secondly, even working in a bookstore can get you places, if you want to move on. I got a job at a bookstore, I knew someone there with an internship at a publisher, she suggested I apply for an internship there, and I did. I now work there! Never underestimate the power of the book. Even one that looks like a quick read.

    This book was pretty good, gives you a good idea of what it’s like to work in literary careers such as publishing, what education/experience is necessary to get your foot in the door, and what the path up the ladder can be like. However, it didn’t deliver any non-obvious suggestions for potential career paths. I did not have any “WOW, I never thought of being a —” moments.
