Format: Paperback
This book is so good that we buy it 5-10 copies at a time to give to interns and others who have interviewed and "struck out" repeatedly. You know by the time someone is spending the time to interview you, on paper you meet the job description. This tells the candidate how to get the interview right. Everyone I know who we have had read this has fixed many of their interview problems - buy it for your kids, your nephews and nieces, your interns and students - and expect to keep buying new copies to hand out.

I went for a significant promotion and this book really helped me prepare. I bought it five days before the interview and found it easy enough to read a couple of times and focus on the chapters i needed. It's simply written, very easy to relate to and contains a number of interview gems!

I really can't recommend this book enough for anyone who we be interviewed in the near future. I read the whole book in under two hours and now feel so much more confident about going into an interview. I don't have any interviews lined up at present but I will work on the tasks presented in the book so that I feel fully prepared if I decide to change jobs in the future. I chose this book based on the previous five star reviews and now I'm back two days later to leave my own five star review, I think that says it all.

I first bought this many years ago, I can honestly say that since then I've lost count of the work i've won and jobs I've obtained as a result of the techniques I learnt from this book! I approach interviews now, supremely confident that I'll know as much as the interviewer, and ready to expect the type of questions I'm usually asked!
Not a very thick book, but without a single wasted page! Top marks Mr Eggert! 10/10 !

Format: Paperback
I was a graduate and I was applying for a job. I was in a bookstore with my girlfriend and was looking through some books to get some help with my interviews, when I saw this one. The only reason I bought it was because I thought: "Ok, I am not much into reading, I am not going to spend hours finding out about other people's theories that confuse me and describe something completely different than me, so I am getting this one which looks easy readable, small (140 pages with 2-3 page chapters) and describes techniques in a simple, understandable and realistic way."
When I finished reading this book, I liked it so much that I read it two more times (I've never read a book a second time in my life). Then I had my first interview where I applied all the techniques. Then I had my second interview and then I had a job in a very successful multi-national firm with a good salary and excellent working conditions.
Read this book. You don't want to go to an interview and be prepared only on the less important issues. E.g. the interviewers don't want to see a person that is capable of doing his homework and knows the revenues of the company in the last 5 years, the stock price, etc. They want to see that this person will fit into the company and be able to do the job. You don't want to get asked common questions that you had never been bothered to prepare. E.g. You don't want to be asked "How much money do you want?" and be like "Hmmm, well, I've never thought about that one. Is X too much or too little? Will they think that I am expensive and get somebody else, or will they think that I ask too little therefore I am not that good?" You want to be able to respond with quick, simple and diplomatic answers to all questions.

This book is very short - you can rattle through it in less than an hour, which is probably a good thing. I don't think there is anything very new in it but it does focus the mind and there are some useful tips.

By Mrs Poirot on 20 Jan. 2012
Format: Paperback
Fantastic book. As an HR professional, having spent a lot of time on the other side of the table, I find it balanced and realistic. I bought it many years ago and have gone back to it time and time again, every time I've moved jobs, and found its advice second to none. No silver bullet, as another reviewer pointed out - you have to do your homework yourself - but this book takes you through all the preparation you need. So far, since reading it, I've never failed to get the job once I got the interview. Well worth a read - especially in the current climate.
