One hundred pages of lifesaving advice for people out of work. When over ten million people have needed help with their job-hunt--or with figuring out what to do with their life--there is one person they have turned to, more than any other. He is Richard N. Bolles, author of the #1 job-hunting book of all time, What Color Is Your Parachute? His name is well-known around the world. Just during the last twelve months, he has appeared in Time ("10 Ideas Changing the World Right Now," March 2009), U.S. News & World Report (deemed "savior of the nation's unemployed," October 2008), NBC's Today Show (broadcast in April 2009), and many other publications and shows. His book was the #1 best-seller on BusinessWeek's paperback list as recently as last November.<br> <br> Never has his advice been more sought than during these brutal economic times. He has responded by writing a completely new book: The Job-Hunter's Survival Guide , designed particularly for people who are hanging on the ropes, who haven't time to do a lot of reading but need help desperately--and now. Early reviews have called this little Guide "brilliant" and "tremendously helpful."
