Item description for Find Your Right Job by George S. Clason (the author of The Richest Man in Babylon) by S. Clason George...
There are certain occupations which each individual is more efficient at than any other.
Psychologists tell us that we are all entitled to earn our bread at labor that is pleasing to us, and furthermore that we cannot be contented at any other kind. Economists tell us that the man who is happy at his work produces far more than his discontented neighbor, and does so with less effort and less fatigue.
Everyone should, work at a job, occupation, or profession that he likes. Yet, inconsistent as it seems, eighty percent of the people of the world are dissatisfied with their jobs. The reader of these lines may be among the number.
In brief, the work at which you are most efficient is the kind of work that you like to do and at which you can accomplish the most. It is likewise the work in which you can find the most happiness, make the most money, achieve the greatest measure of success, and do the most good for your fellow man.

Reviews - What do customers think about Find Your Right Job by George S. Clason (the author of The Richest Man in Babylon)?
Was he joking?! Sep 25, 2007
As the first reviewer stated, Clason claims people find the right job based primarily upon physical appearance. Are you're fat? Then you should work with food. Are you skinny with a big head or do you have big protruding knots above your ears? Then clearly you should go into something intellectually challenging like physics. Big hands? Construction or mechanics would be right for you!
I wonder what physical features you would need in order to be a . . . oh, never mind!
So, was he joking?! Nope. He claims to have data supporting all this as he divides people into different classes and even hybrid classes. I must say that "The Richest Man in Babylon" is a most wonderful book that Clason also wrote. Well worth reading. I'd say even give a copy of "Richest Man" to a friend. Maybe that's really why I bought this title. But, don't be fooled. "Find Your Right Job" is the absolute opposite of "Richest Man" in worth and in wisdom. A joke indeed!

This book is VERY outdated Aug 23, 2007
This book is very outdated. The Careers and salaries are very outdated. It uses techniques based on how you look to determine what type of job you should have. I was very dissappointed.
