Other than the absolutely horrible intro where you feel bad for aging, this book gives some great tips on capitalizing on the skills and experiences gathered by time in the field. I've enjoyed doing the exercises and discovered some skills that I didn't think would be important but might turn in to great selling features during an interview. The website connection is very helpful as well providing access to useful tools to build power words and confidence.

I work with a lot of people who are WAY over 40 and searching for a new job. Career counselor Robin Ryan has great advise. I listened to this book and it was engaging and educatioal.

Recommends it for: everyone over 40 at every income level
Recommended to Maureen by: No one
I am going to read this book again, i sorta ran thru it quickly as to determine if it was worth my full attention. Since I do think its worth it, i will go thru this again. Its a diverse book in terms of salary ranges, however, it does start out high on the salary ranges.
A person in the "middle income" bracket will only benefit from the ideas not getting that lowest example salary range. To this point I was disappointed.

An all around great book for the over 40 job seeker. I rented this book through Kindle library and probably plan on buying a copy for myself to mark up. But Robin tackles all the problems we face. From dress to success. A must need book.

This book is marketed more for the executive who earns a higher income than most, but the tips in this book can apply to many positions that one applies for. I wish I read this earlier, but will put some of these tips into use, if my 2nd interview w/ a company doesn't work out.

Very good book for older people looking for a job. Tell how to update your appearance and other good info.

Does start out a bit like an info-mercial, but some good tips and advice.

Recommends it for: 40+ who are out of touch
Unless you have been hiding out in a cave this last decade, most of this advise is common sense. There are a few good tips; worth skimming through.
