It has endless information on Career Possibilities for Bookworms, Careers in Libraries, Careers in Book Publishing, Careers in the Private Sector, Careers with Magazines and Newspapers, Careers in Glamour Industries, Careers in Education, Careers in Research, Careers with the Government, More Career Opportunities for Bookworms.
This book gives an insight of the vision the authors have for old and new professionals in the field.
One may wonder why all this focus on print medium, and not a single chapter dealing with new incarnations of the book: e-books, desktop publishing, etc. Hope and pray the next edition will incorporate the newer paths, and show that the box is not limited, anyways.
The book describes the particular field in which a Bookworm can utilize their skills ( librarian, teacher, copy editor, etc.), tells you of any educational requirements needed, and gives a brief bibliography of additional resources at the chapter's end.
Careers for Bookworms is good in that introduces you to the various careers out there available for advid readers. Unfortunately it fails to discuss any internet possibilities for bookworms. Although it lists the jobs available, it fails to give in depth descriptions as to how one finds these jobs. The book certainly needs a revision but is a good start in those seeking career opportunities in reading books.
