Customer Review

on 18 December 2011
I was really excited about this book, from the table of context and exception available on Amazon it is an excellent all-you-need-to-know-about-interviews book. Skimming through the book gives the same impression, it looks to be full of useful advices and examples on how to write resume, how to prepare for an interview, etc.. Reading this book cover to cover is impossible. Somewhere in the middle I've just got enough of stupid sarcastic comments, bragging about the author herself and poor text structure within chapters, and I just skimmed through the rest.

For sure I like Tucker Max humour (arrogance and sarcasm) and I loved "Screw It, Lets Do It" by Richard Branson (writing about himself) and "Tricks of The Mind" by Derren Brown (highly unstructured). However, when I look for a book teaching how to compile your resume and do interviews, I want it to be clean, structured and optimistic. As the author claims to be an experienced recruiter, I also expect it to be full of inside-secrets and practical guidelines. Instead, you get a book consisting of a) mocking other peoples, b) bragging, c) stating obvious facts that anyone will learn from their first interview or just basic social norms, d) mixing up practical advices with the authors personal preferences, e) lacking any structure within each chapter, f) constantly repeating same (few/poor) ideas, etc.

Conclusion: If you have a chance, find a summary of the book, get somebody else to read it, write twenty different resumes to different companies and see which of them will work out, set up an interview with a hard-to-get-company you don't even want to work at, you will figure it out. This book will just waste your time, your money, your motivation and your mood.
