Similar to Peter Cross's previous book, "Earning a Crust", on careers for women, this book presents discussions with a wide range of men who live and work for their jobs. The jobs in question are not necessarily those that a job-seeker would look for first, so they should provide an inspiration for readers to look further afield and consider some occupations they might not even have thought of. There are around 75 interviews in the book, presenting insights into employment possibilities and opportunities. The jobs range across most industries and include descriptions of the working lives of men who really know what those jobs are like. They reveal the downsides of their work, as well as the highs, so that readers can see their own suitability or otherwise for these unusual occupations. The book contains contact details, trade organizations and useable references. As with "Earning a Crust", the book is suitable for both men and women.
