Ten top advice books for graduates

Roman Krznaric is the author of How to Find Fulfilling Work. John-Paul Flintoff is the author of How to Change the World. For The Daily Beast, together they came up with a list of ten books new graduates can turn to for practical insights about the real world.

One of Krznaric's suggestions:
Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do
by Studs Terkel

Hotel clerks, stockbrokers, and every other kind of worker you can think of speak about their experiences of work in their own voices, as recorded by Chicago oral historian Studs Terkel in the 1970s. This superb book contains universal insights about how people choose—and do not choose—their careers.
Read about the other books on the list.
