Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 201–202. Reviews the book, Career Life Planning for Americans: Agenda for, Organizations and Individuals by Patrick J. Montana and Margaret V. Higginson (1978). This book has three objectives. The first is to analyze the social and individual forces that have created a need for career and life planning in America. The second is to identify the major problems that individuals and organizations must solve as part of the planning process, and the third is to provide examples of both individual and organizational career-life-planning programs. Little of what is included in this part of the book is new. The second part of the book, devoted to problem solving, summarizes specific issues that people and organizations have to face. Probably the most useful part of the book is contained in the appendices, which provide outlines of specific corporate programs. This is a book for managers who are just beginning to recognize a need in their firms and wish to understand the forces behind that need. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
