A lot of the book extends outside of the realm of hiring. That's not a bad thing per say--hiring is a small piece of a larger way of approaching work, which spans to include networking on one end, and performance evaluations on the other. I'm not ready to buy into their practices wholesale, so I found that only 30-40% of the book was useful. That being said, the general idea of trying to remove "voodoo hiring" from your processes and make it more objective was the sort of thing I was looking for. I'll try to apply the spirit of the methodology in this book, if not the exact practices.
