Now in its thirty-second year, WHAT COLOR IS YOUR PARACHUTE? continues to be Ten Speed’s best-seller and the best-selling job-hunting book in the world. One of the reasons it’s still so popular is that author Richard Bolles faithfully revises the English-language edition, often dramatically, each year. For the 2002 edition, Bolles has completely rewritten the book in light of the Internet and other current developments in job-hunting and career-changing methods. New features include a card-sort, a list of people’s Fields of Fascination, and a rundown on new Internet sites that are particularly helpful to the job-hunter. Bolles has also included, for the first time, a new feature in each chapter called “But What If That Doesn’t Work?” wherein he sketches alternatives to popular job-hunting methods for those who use such methods but strike out. As always, Bolles presents statistics about the success of each job-hunting method, offers exercises for helping people identify their strengths and their dreams, and includes an epilogue about the relationship between faith and work. We think this is the finest PARACHUTE that Richard Bolles has yet produced, a book that will be a revelation to both those new to the author’s work and to readers who have cherished past editions of PARACHUTE.
