Because the digital market changes so rapidly this book is already getting outdated.
I read the digital version which lacked the color photo inserts which left only a few grayscale images throughout. This makes the digital version that I had worthless.

Editorial Reviews
From Library Journal
A better title for this would be The Smart- but-Timid-or-Culturally-Bound Woman's Guide . . . , as this work contains solutions to problems traditional women face including employment history gaps, little or no experience, being a recent graduate, wanting to change career direction, or getting the next level job. Adaptations of the classic chronological and functional resume formats are developed for specific case histories in each of these five situations. Advising women to "Banish your modesty and 'toot your own horn'," the authors advocate an assertive marketing strategy and offer guidance throughout the entire job-searching process. Specific tools the authors suggest include worksheets for taking inventory of skills, accomplishments, and work history and a "Career Card System" for filing the raw data. Although some may find such phrases as "trademarks of a well-dressed resume" trite or irksome, women in need of a little extra coaching will find this guide helpful. Recommended for public libraries everywhere.
