ABSTRACT
The article discusses the book "What Color Is Your Parachute?," which was initially published by career expert Dick Bolles in 1970. The book will be republished in 2007, with a dramatic rewrite that is set to be published by Ten Speed Press. Bolles re-researched, re-thought, and re-explained his ideas and perspectives on careers, focusing on the changes that technology like blogs, TiVo, and webcasts have made on career development. The new edition will be divided into three sections that deal with building a philosophy of work and making decisions.
