The book is most useful if you're discontented with your present career (or have qualms about the career you're preparing for, if you're a student). I was railroaded into a career that didn't suit me because of my family's expectations, although I was determined and intelligent enough to become moderately good at it. But I never felt comfortable with it, and it was only after many unhappy years that I realized I was in the wrong job and broke away to find a more congenial career path. I wish this book had existed 30 years ago!
I agree with other readers that the book is short on practical guidance as to WHICH career you should choose -- I've found Barbara Sher's books much more helpful. Nonetheless, this is a good place to start, at a reasonable price, and it's excellent as far as it goes.

you like your job to "adjust" to you? By reading "Do What You Are,"
anyone can achieve this goal. Paul D. Tieger & Barbara Barron-Tieger
take their readers on a journey to meet face-to-face with their homunculus.

They provide each reader with a way of analyzing his or her personality
without much of the technical jargon one receives while lying on a doctor's
couch. However, they take the time to thoroughly explain personality
characteristics and how those characteristics, in specific combinations,
define each personality type. Note: Anyone who has ever taken a
Myers-Briggs exam will feel right at home with this book. They give new
meaning to the word "maturity" by talking about the development path
each of us takes as we move through life. Because of the accuracy of
each of the personality type sections, I find them to be the most exciting.
Everyone I asked to read this book, myself included, quickly identified
with a personality type and found that they had worked in (or have
contemplated) a job in one of the careers listed with their respective
After reading this book, you should have no problem in finding a job that matches
"who you are." Overall, this book is not a panacea for preventing you from
being downsized or developing an ulcer from your job stresses.Read more ›
I found it enjoyable to read and a relief to find that there are apparently other people out there like me - though not very many according to the percentages in the book - no wonder I haven't bumped into many!
I also found it helped me to understand why I had made some of my choices and why they had not been very good ones to make. Almost as importantly, it has enabled me to understand a little better my colleagues with completely different personalities. No mean feat, believe me!
