ROSEN has held many, many jobs. I found that many of the answers were vague or not really helpful. Many of the jobs are not likely to be serious options, because they would require a whole lot of experience or special connections to people who already have the job.

What will I actually do all day? Do I have to wear a suit and pointy shoes? How do I even get my foot in the door? . 1. The tone of this book is so casual and flip, it's off-putting. People older than 25 will find it distracting, and new college graduates will find it eye-rollingly uncool.

This book is well written, and has a lot of things than can help someone that isn't really looking at any particular job see a wide variety of jobs and how their days are, etc. etc. The types of jobs in here are fairly specific, so I'm guessing if you were going to be a jewelry designer, you would probably have a passion for this, and a working knowledge of it without reading it. That being said, it reads quickly, and can be eye opening in a broader sense. For someone that is looking at striking out an adventure with a fairly specific job it would do the trick.

The book would be fine for college students who are exploring career choices. Don't know how helpful it would be for older adults who have more experience in the working world.

Got this as a gift for my college grad sister. She loved it! Would recommend as a bit of a cheeky gift but useful too!

I don't like bad language but like what this book has to offer. I purchased it for my daughter who is embarking on her new career after college. This is a good read.

Although this book was probably more relevant at the time it was published, it is still worth looking at now.

For each job listed, the author describes what someone with the job does, what kind of person does the job, how much money people with the job make, a "Stress-o-Meter" ranking of how stressful the job is (with a little explanation of why), a two column "Pros" and "Cons" comparison, a sample daily schedule for someone who does the job, and a section about how to get into the job.

Overall, the book is fairly interesting, and written so that it is fun to read. I found that many of the answers were vague or not really helpful. Many of the jobs are not likely to be serious options, because they would require a whole lot of experience or special connections to people who already have the job.

I think this book would be best for someone who is a senior in high school or a freshman in college. If you decided early that you wanted to choose one of the career paths presented, I think it would be possible to actually end up getting one of the jobs mentioned. If you're already a real grown up, with bills to pay and real responsibilities, it isn't going to seem like a smart idea to try to become a film director. Or a band manager. Or a toy inventor. Many of the job suggestions are things that would require 5+ years of not making money (or making almost no money), and many of the jobs are not the sort of thing you could start on the side while keeping a regular job.

It is an interesting book, though. The author is a little humorous, and provides a lot of useful information.

My dad bought me this book after hearing about it on National Public Radio and, at first, I was a bit skeptical.
I mean, who really wants to waste time reading another boring 'How to' book on how to get a cool job?

But really, this book isn't like that at all.
It's factual of course, so you don't have to worry about how much of it is just hot air.
But it's also very comical, interesting, and respectfully realistic.
Not a candy-coater, but in no ways a dream crusher.

What more could you ask for <3?

This book is a great concept and is extremely well executed. It achieves its goal of presenting actual informational interviews with cool interesting people who are top in their fields. It's the equivalent of going to an intimate dinner party with people who have interesting jobs you might want, without the awkwardness of hounding folks about the details of what they do and how they went about getting to do it. The book is also very funny of course -- Rosen's conversational style writing, taglines and charts and graphs gave me many laughs out loud. I wish I had had this book when I got out of college and the only job I could imagine wanting was working as an intern/page on Letterman. Great gift for anyone who thinks they need a life coach (one of the jobs profiled). Cheaper too.
Most career books I've read try to herd us into the same jobs without thinking out of the box. There are tons of other interesting, fun and well paying jobs out there that rarely seem to get mentioned. This book lists quite a few examples. It was a blast to read. It really helps expand your thinking and it makes the thought of a career change actually exciting!! And the income figures given are realistic too. Most other career books are way too low for whatever reason.

A great book and a great read!!
