The writer describes a variety of unique and creative careers. He discusses the pros and cons of these jobs and what you need to do to get them. As hack writing goes, this guy has flashes of impish insight and wicked wit within the mostly pedestrian prose. It was probably written quickly under deadline pressure for a small amount of money. However, the author succeeds in fulfilling the mandate for a book of this kind. It is what it claims to be, no more, no less: an informative, how-to guide.
