KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of Pattern for Personality, Manners for Moderns and other such alliteratively titled teen-tailored help books leaves the wordy cuteness behind as she jumps into the maelstrom of pros, cons and possibilities in a wide variety of job fields and the personal meaning they have. While admitting the importance of homemaking and knowing how to do it successfully, the book endorses the idea that a career is necessary- often economically so and always for making the most of oneself. Brisk discussions follow on all vocations from home economics to advertising to the arts. A salient factor is the relating of fields- for instance of journalism to home economics, of advertising to retailing, and so forth- plus a later discussion of the related field in its own right. Fairly complete coverage here, with a lot of problems tackled in heartening woman to woman talk.
