Introduction to This Issue

Article excerpt

Ao CPAD Journal Book Reviews Editor has the best work in the world. The role calls for looking at dozens of books about careers and life at work, communicating with people who share a keen interest in these top- ics, and then discovering more about the books and the reviewers. It has been my privilege to work with the multi-faceted reviewers who shared their knowledge and opinions for this issue. Thank you all so much! I've been impressed with your observations, and I applaud your willingness to tell it like it is for you. When your experiences differed from those of the authors, you said so. When something seems missing or over-done, you said so. Also, a big thanks goes to Managing Editor, Steven Beasley, for his guidance and support. It can't be said too many times that Ste- ven's commitment to our profession is exceptional. We are all fortunate to have him helping us learn what's new, important and relevant. From my chair I noticed opportunities for new or revised books on topics that surely have changed: e.g., new career assessments and new ways to administer them, new ways to use technology and social media to choose and manage careers, new ways to develop career services programs, new and emerging careers, what is happening to traditional employment models, and more. As you well know, we are surrounded by changes that show no signs of slowing. Are career centers moving online? Is working online the future of career centers and the work of career practitioners? For something different in this issue we have two reviewers looking over a Virtual Career Library, one reviewer is from the U. S. and the other reviewer is from Canada. You may decide to take a closer look at a VCL for your workplace. The reviews in this Journal are grouped by chapters. Each review in a chapter is organized around these themes:
