"In my opinion, the author did an excellent job of covering the
essential topics in a logical sequence. There are many (and varied)
examples and case studies that highlight specific career counseling
"I would describe the Sharf text as an up-to-date comprehensive examination of applying career development theory to the counseling setting. It is a well-researched and well-organized text for students with a background in the helping professions."
"While other career texts briefly underline the basic concepts of the theories, Sharf's text goes into detail. He describes the applicability of the theories to marginalized groups well. The case scenarios are a wonderful addition to this text."
