I read it two days before my interview and it did the trick. Before reading it I was casting about and a bit anxious; after I was focussed and even started to look forward to the interview.
I would recommend allowing more than two days to spare if you can if only to do justice to the helpful exercises that encourage the reader to reflect on what they really want to get out of their working life.
In a word - brilliant!
This 2012 edition of "Job interviews - top answers to tough questions" is a timely and focussed update from the previous jointly authored version. The additional 24 questions help focus on what can make the difference that makes the difference in today's much more competitive market. Most important is its readability and no-nonsense approach.
For consultants many of the questions are a helpful skim read when pitching for work. Chapter 10 on "Revealing your edge" is, for me the most helpful as a means of enhancing their presentation and providing more focussed answers.
So another great book and at very competitive price!
Packed with lots of useful tips and advice I would highly recommend the book.
