KIRKUS REVIEW

 In the ``Choices'' career series, brief interviews with 14 performers--e.g., a juggler, comedian, actor, dancer, and model. Also included: a congressman, pastor, teacher, and lawyer. Each describes how he or she got started and what the job entails, personal feelings about the work, and what young people considering the career should know. Men, women, and various races are represented. This will serve as a starting point for some unusual careers, but for the most part the interviews are too brief to give the reader information of any substance. Also, the books suggested for further reading are seriously outdated: a 1969 copyright for a book on teaching; 1964 for careers in music. List of organizations to write for more information. The glossary-index is of little use. (Nonfiction. 12-14)
