This guy is great! (I was sooo sorry to see that he is married and lives on the other side of the world) He should be on TV! This is in your face, no time wasting stuff. The book is clean and simple, covers everything I was concerned with, in a lovely writing style with plenty of cross-referencing. He also uses great quotes and references throughout - I'm definitely going to lift some of them for my next presentation.
The writer has obviously been in the trenches (so much of what he says sounds familiar to my experiences) and his approach is based on giving you an understanding of what/how the other guy is thinking. From that, you develop a job-hunting strategy, rather than a tactical, reactive approach. It just makes sense and I know it is going to work. My confidence was boosted just by reading the opening chapters. Reading this book is like having a conversation with the writer - I'd love to meet him!
I have been thinking of moving company, and I picked Oasis up in an airport bookstore - what a stroke of luck. Every page held another gem (or nugget) of information. I have completely put my plans on hold, cos I have a LOT of work to do before I make my next move. I have been downsized twice since the NASDAQ crash in 2000 and this book will help make sure that that never happens again - or if it does that I'll be ready for it.
I've read Bolles and Lucht and Jackson and many others, but Wheres My Oasis puts them all in the shade. This is one book you will not regret owning.
