I’m an employer who is up to his 11th book on hiring skills. Decided to listen to this advice to candidates. From someone that sits on the hiring side of the table, I can tell you that this book gives very solid advice. Canned answers are known to people that hire - we spot them and it reduces your credibility. Bad or inexperienced hiring managers hire if they “like you” and those they hire often fail quickly as a bad job match. Good hiring managers look for (1) skills and (2) cultural fit (character).
One thing. Do the cover letter. It helps personalize your resume - shows you’re interested in the company and why. Lack of a brief direct cover letter stating passion for the role and a few matching past skills might make the difference between you and another. Only takes a minute - check grammar and spelling if the work entails writing ability. Good luck.

If you had only one day to prepare for an interview (or don't want to bother reviewing 200 interview questions to pick the ones that are probably relevant to the job you're applying for), this covers the essential advice you need. However, some of it seems obvious like not asking about vacation, flex time, and benefits during an interview... wait until you get an offer for the job.
