This is a book about people and their work. Would you like to direct air traffic, build a house, weld a ship together, prune trees, care for animals, or help a dentist? The book explores these possibilities and more, all of which require specialized training but not a four year college degree. Each photo sequence shows someone at work in the actual setting for that job and tells briefly what the work involves and what training is required. Perhaps the this book and the people in it can spark some ideas for you about the world of work.
