Table of Contents
Michael E. Long Sr., Little Rock Job Corps"I was surprised at its content for a small book. It is easy to read and understand I would recommend this book to others for the information it has."

It contains just enough general topic material so that it can be used in a variety of occupations, but is easily affordable."
