What Color Is Your Parachute?

Richard N. Bolles

Overview

What we love about books is the aura of longevity that surrounds them. Even if most books never reach a wide audience, technically, they can survive for 1000s of years, until one day, someone digs them up again. But longevity has its problems too.

For a book to take a stand over time it needs to not deviate from what it stood for when it was released. That's why authors of classics like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People make as few changes to their books as possible. The price they pay for a strong message is that their books feel old today.

So how can you send a strong message without compromising your book's relevancy in a world that changes so fast? You could do what Richard "Dick" Bolles did: update your book every single year. He's done so with his bible for job seekers, What Color Is Your Parachute, since 1975, sometimes altering entire sections of the book.

Whether you've been out of a job or just feel ready for a new one, here's how to take your career to the next level!
