This book only gives a few limited ideas for careers and those careers are typically low-paying jobs. Maybe one is supposed to extrapolate other career ideas from the few listed. Several choices that I thought would be included are not even mentioned in passing, such as scientist & librarian. And some of the choices have a very narrow context. Artisan is a good idea, but there are very few places to do this.

This book was very disappointing. Maybe someone else will write a better version.

I could have written this book. Better. Feels like a term paper. Hard to believe someone had the nerve to sell this book. Fortunately not to me!

Meh. This book is probably best for teenagers or people who are looking at getting their first job and trying to figure out what might work well with their skillset.

There are perhaps a few tips and ideas an introvert in business might extrapolate out in terms of skills or settings for their own business, but I really didn't get a sense of a book worth recommending as I slogged through it

Didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know about freelance writing, but still a good read. A valuable read for high school students.

This was okay, though it didnt cover very much, and the examples were kind of boring - none of the personal descriptions grabbed me at all.
