“No one has been writing best-selling career-advice books longer than Richard Bolles.”
—Wall Street Journal, 9/15/11
“What Color Is Your Parachute? is about job-hunting and career-changing, but it’s also about figuring out who you are as a person and what you want out of life.”
“. . . one of the first job-hunting books on the market. It is still arguably the best. And it is indisputably the most popular.”
“Bolles knows what he’s talking about: his practical job-hunting strategies are based on years of research, and best of all, they really work.”
—School Library Journal
“Ideally, everyone should read What Color Is Your Parachute? in the tenth grade and again every year thereafter.”
“There’s Parachute, and then there’s all the rest. . . . a life-changing book.”
—Career Planning and Adult Development Journal
“Parachute is still a top seller and it remains the go-to guide for everyone from midlife-crisis boomers looking to change their careers to college students looking to start one.”
—New York Post --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
