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.

I'm definitely going to listen to this book again. It is packed with information and insights to the point that I listened to one chapter twice and still felt that there was more that I could learn from those same words.
Tuckerton doesn't feed you the answers to pass the interview. He teaches you how to craft your own answers that address the real questions and highlight the right skills. He's teaching critical thinking and directing you on what to think about.
I'm looking for a new job right now, and I'm likely going to sit down with the Kindle version of this book and outline some answers to common questions. The narration is great. Abernathy is a pro and sounds authoritative in his delivery.
