What Colour Is Your Parachute?
Richard Bolles: “Back in 1969 I had a bunch of friends who were losing their jobs, right and left. They asked me for counsel and advice. I had none to give. Tired of being an ignoramus, I decided to research the whole field of job-hunting. I self-published the result of my travels and research, in December of 1970. A commercial publisher, Ten Speed Press, asked permission to publish it in 1972, and I said ‘Yes’, provided I could revise, update, or even rewrite it, each year. We agreed. And the rest if history. 10 million copies sold to date, and designated by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best and most influential non-fiction works of the past 90 years. Did I see that coming? No, of course not.
