I look at this cover and I hear the theme song to the Mary Tyler Moore Show. ┬áIt is almost as if this book were the nonfiction version of this show (and not nearly as interesting). It almost seems a bit dated for 1983. Career and relocation information is pretty light and the major emphasis is on finding a man in a new city. (Isn’t that why you moved in the first place?)

As an added bonus, this particular edition has a nice strip of mold growing along the inside binding. Yum!

Instead of throwing my hat in the air, I think I will toss this book.

are you a city person?

  1. I’ve lived in the city all my (LONG) life — a city of over 1,000,000. Yet I scored only 12 on the questions above. Should I move to the country? I thought I was reasonably satisfied, but maybe not….

  2. According to the author, this book will help me to learn how to “compete with talented people” in the big city.

    So if I move to the country, I only have to compete with untalented types?
