"For thousands of Americans Shoya Zichy's landmark 276 page masterpiece, "Career Match" may have simultaneously squelched the wretched specter of unemployment and brought career satisfaction to those who sing the blues at a time when their nation's economy has been sporting a historically rosy complexion...The most compelling reason for reading this book and why we are bringing it to the attention of TravelSmart readers is that "Career Match" makes it easier for anyone who wants to squeeze the most out of their life experience to do just that. That's why I bought copies for each of my children (all over 40 now). If they can get as much out of the book as I did they'll be grateful for the rest of their lives. ''
