The main thing is the author reduced the job interview, all possible permutations of it, to just fifteen questions. He shows how any interviewee can certainly stick to fifteen prepared responses, no matter how the interviewer presents questions.
Narration was excellent, in my opinion. Yes there were brief times when the material got tedious but the narrator soldiered on and got through each event. 80% of the book was interesting and fresh, I think. Solid, probably great performance.
The author explained one time briefly but authoritatively how he came to understand the interview process and promised he wouldn't revisit his bona fides - he didn't. Also, he didn't try to market himself. If he had, no way I would 5-star this review. By the way, he completely convinced me that he's one of the very top experts when it comes to job interviews. He should put his experiences on an author page.
Reasons were given why the preparation of an interviewee response set is too unique to the individual for expert to offer anything other than general guidelines. The listener is made to understand there's no substitute for examining one's own life to find meaning in it that can be expressed. Nobody can tell you or me how to answer all fifteen question types. No miracles claimed here.
There were so many guidelines in this book as anybody can imagine. For instance, the author explains the futility of trying to trick the interviewer or manipulate the meeting. The people doing the interviewing have usually done a whole lot of it and one learns certain things doing what they do. It's very risky to do anything other than play it straight.
I don't know why there weren't already at least a couple hundred reviews. Seems it could be over a thousand. I think it's a hot book. Not warm, I mean hot.
