This book was a valuable read, and gave some good insight into questions to ask when Interviewing. I found it was fairly focused on management type questions, but gave me some good insight into answers candidates could give and what to watch out for. I'm definitely going to read through it again next time I need to interview - or be interviewed.

This book is not only great for those who hire and want to design questions that will reveal strengths and weaknesses of candidates in the context of the work you want done and the workmates s/he will do it with, it is great for those candidates who want to peer under the curtain to see what current hiring practice is going to throw at them before showing up at an interview.

Very illuminating!

Angela
thought-provoking prep for a job interview, or good fodder for the hiring. Aimed to get "real information", how to spot "red flads" indicating evasions or untruths.

Weird book. A lot of the questions are actually good, but the rationale seems borderline hostile toward the candidates.
John
Picked it up for some ideas. Put it down gaining none.
