Recommends it for: lovers of "Gig," job-seekers, curious folks
Rosen has crafted a thoughtful, incredibly useful career book using the same smart, hilarious voice from his novel, "I Just Want My Pants Back." "What's That Job" will not only appeal to job-seekers, but also to people curious to find out about a "day in the life" of any one of the 50 careers profiled here. My favorite chapter: Private Investigator!

This was a pretty good book. I flipped through it and just read the jobs I was interested in. It is short and to the point. It also shows a life in the day of whatever job it is and how to go about getting trained or getting the job.
