From the Paper:

""What Color is Your Parachute?" has become a classic in career choice and education. Bolles wrote his first edition of the book in 1970, and it has remained on the bestseller list nearly ever since. The 2003 edition is updated for today's struggling economy, but still contains the gems of wisdom and insight that have made the book a bestseller all these years. Bolles completely revised the book for this edition, and while this new edition contains less actual pages, the information packed into the book could help just about any job hunter in their search for the perfect employment. Early in the book, Bolles spells out the mission for serious job seekers. "Your mission is one which is uniquely yours," he says, " and that is to exercise that talent which you particularly came to Earth to use your greatest gift, which you most delight to use" (Bolles). The book is packed with inspirational messages like these, but it also contains a variety of worksheets and exercises to help the job seeker discover more about themselves and their "greatest gifts.""
