KIRKUS REVIEW

A government-brochure-level listing of occupational titles, some new (radiation monitor, CAT-scanner radiologist) and some, presumably, just unique (beekeeper, topiarist, termite controller). Space program and computer personnel; demographers; inhalation, dance, and puppet therapists; floral designers; and vending machine repairers are among the oddly mixed bag of specialties Splaver covers--in uniformly bland, brief, uncritical, and unanalytical paragraphs. For several general fields and some specific titles, addresses of relevant colleges are listed. Another routine run-down, more pointless than most, by the author of several.
