    Very unique poetry book. Will Jelbert writes in a stream of consciousness. Almost like a Rohrschach test. Different people will see different things. He has a verse about different jobs. Some are a little uncommon - like blacksmith. How many people are a blacksmith today? 102 jobs from Accountant to Whore. Yes, you read it right. The book forced me to use the creative side of my brain, and that's not a bad thing. Cleverly written.

    BoringBoring read. Some of these Job Verses just don't make sense at all. Would not recommend. But one should read at their own risk. Some will enjoy this book, others will find it rather dull.

    It was nothing special in my opinion.

    Verses of poems, an interesting way to offer your readers something that gives off a sense of humor. A list of a fair amount of occupations, titles, and professions you could possibly think of, each with their unique poem of thought. Several of the profession descriptions point out true flaws and the author Will Jelbert hopes that his readers catch on. There were quite a few job titles that I’ve never heard of before and was interesting to learn about them for the first time through a poem.I enjoyed reading this book of 103 careers being described in such a controversial way. For ‘The Lawyer’, the line “a liar of temptations” stood out to me, as most people do believe that lawyers are paid, professional liars. Another one that stood out to me was for ‘Model’, the line “or empty face, dressed in lace, cries desire of life”, is a way of saying models are just a pretty face with no real emotions like a doll to dress up and all they want is to live an actual life.A very deep concept of these professions and it’s up to the individual reader to interpret it in their own way. I recommend this book for anyone who loves poems that may or may not rhyme with a curiosity of certain professions in the world. It is a quick read in one setting, but you can also opt to read a few each day for humor purposes.

    Remember the days when you started college and had to decide what would be your career for the rest of your life; that is unless you already knew. Job descriptions are fine but they don’t really tell you the truth. In his book, Will Jelbert has cut to chase and gives his readers the true essence of each career in verse.Take Advertiser for example. We all basically know those in this career are continuously crying out that we should buy a certain product, just like the town crier of the past who cried out the time and saying ALL IS WELL. We all understand those in this career will do almost anything to accomplish this goal to get your cash so that their product will become your trash, including lying.To best enjoy this book you should read each career, STOP and then quietly contemplate about what you’ve read, so you can enjoy the humor in it.Besides being an Author, I’m also a Book Reviewer. Not seeing my 2nd second career listed I decided write one on my ownBOOK REVIEWERBuild a library of books for free.Resist accepting requests for reviews or You’ll be stuck with books you would have never read.Enter giveaways instead and may the forces decide if you’ll get the bookyou’re interest in reading.Read the book, then write a few good words and be fair for each book you’ve received.As you probably can tell, I totally enjoyed this quick read and why I’m giving it 5 STARS.

    WOW!!!On my Goodreads page, I think I have at least four books on my "currently reading" shelf. The I run across a little gem of a book such as this and I dive in, without further ado. Wow. I'm really amazed at the tautness of the verse and the dead on accuracy. Check out bartender and physicist and say they aren't spot on. Some really require thinking - physicist - to "oh yeah, that's true" as you chuckle - bartender. Many in between. Must read.
