Sadly just a list of jobs

While I had seen from previous reviews that this book was US based, I had assumed it to be more entrepreneurial and so could still hold relevancy this side of the pond. Unfortunately I was mistaken.

The book is just a list of jobs and salaries with a few anecdotal tidbits mixed in and lists of references every 5 minutes (web addresses don’t translate well to audiobooks...)

So unless you want to know the average salary in the US for a kids clown or magician, and google is too challenging, I can’t recommend this book.
