Useful list of jobs, no useful specifics

It was useful and inspiring to see a list of writing-related jobs, as a reminder that there’s more to a literate career than being a starving artist. However, I didn’t find the information under the job listings to be that useful. Information on requirements and contacts was particularly vague and superficial (for job X, look in the classified for listings of job X openings). I think there must be better sources of information on these jobs elsewhere — look further than this book.

A horrible book. I would give it 1/2 star if I could. Fluffy, over-generalized, miminal information. If Shelly Field is really such a well-known career consultnat, she could have done better. I am finding that books too easily get 5 star ratings on amazon.com, because this is the second one i’ve bought that has not turned out to be good.
