This book was a huge disappointment. I had hoped for something that would lead me to career ideas for my characters that were not so overused as to be cliche; instead I got snippets about general catagories that are what I see so often in books. There was on listing (a subcatagory under firemen) that I have used for a character and so had done my own research on. The listing was accurate yet misleading. The only good thing was the list of books to read for further research, all of which I had already read.
