Product Description

Review

"One of the 25 Books that Have Shaped Readers’ Lives." 
—Center for the Book, Library of Congress

“. . . one of the first job-hunting books on the market. It is still arguably the best. And it is indisputably the most popular.” 
Fast Company

“This is a fantastic tool useful to almost everyone. . . . It’s so darn useful because it is about more than just ‘finding a job.’”
—Kevin Kelly, Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities

“Ideally, everyone should read What Color Is Your Parachute? in the tenth grade and again every year thereafter.” 
Fortune

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.” 
Time

Love the analogy of the flower, and how it is referenced as a tool throughout the book. Also like the many links to more information and resources online.
