"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""
