I just finished reading "Ideas for Teenagers in Information Technology" by Diane Lindsey Reeves. As a site owner who focuses on youth work, I am happy to read about this topic. This book is part of a series of books on certain courses that young people can explore. I have mixed reviews on the book. I thought it was well researched and well written but I do not think it was enough content. It is my opinion that the author used a lot of fillers to fill the book. The book also appeared to be written for general audiences and not specifically for the youth group. There was a lot of technical terms and information. I almost found out that she was writing the book for people who were already in the information technology industry.
Do not misunderstand me, the book had solid information and explained different jobs well. The book also did a good job of keeping my attention through using real stories of people in this particular workplace. The best part of the book and really the only part of the book that was highly targeted to teenagers was questionnaire exercises designed to help in the itinerary. After going through the work experience training, you could decide if a job in information technology was right for you.
Finally, I found the book to have some bright spots, but generally I did not like it.
