Steve Blacker Gives Career Reinvention Advice In “You Can’t Fall Off The Floor”

Steve Blacker, who’s worked at Time, Playboy, Money Magazine, Village Voice, New York Post, Cue Magazine, Medical Economics, Ski View, American Heritage, and tons more, is dishing out the advice in his new book, “You Can’t Fall Off The Floor.” Since, as Blacker says, “getting a job today is a job,” we guess he figures media people can use all the help they can get.

Blacker’s book also contains advice from 30-plus magazine/agency/client execs (Jack Kliger, Carol Smith, Cathie Black, Michael Clinton, George Lois, Chuck Townsend, etc) waxing on the subject of career reinvention and the “traits necessary for a successful career.”
