2.0 out of 5 stars A lot of the same thing
I was not exactly thrilled with this book. It seems that the author mearly published all of the resumes he has written for clients rather than show some different forms and styles. Granted, there are many ideas to be gotten out of the book, but I would have liked to see some variety in the styles of the resumes. They all looked much the same. I think "Executive...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best resume reference book I have ever used, July 20, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
Asher has laid out the book in an easy to follow style. I like that he gives more than one opinion on different styles and formulas for a good resume. His book gave me some great ideas. As a recruiter it is very helpful to have an insighful reference like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent companion to Rites of Passage, April 13, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
Not for entry level or middle managers. It gives a very good explanation of what it takes to write an effective resume at the General Manager, VP, CEO level. The main body of the book is dedicated to present real examples (More than 200), of course the names and companies modified for confidentiality.
Other chapters dedicated for Artists, Scientists, lawers etc.

This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
I browsed this book and am buying it because it provides examples of how to write an executive resume. It has a large number of resumes with formatting that is top-notch. You will also find some excellent examples of how to strengthen your executive resume. It is not so much a "how to" book as a source of excellent resume examples for Director, VP, General Manager, and President level jobs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best examples of Resumes available, June 13, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
I have read extensively in this subject and this book is the best by far in regards to examples. Normally books have at most a dozen examples; this has more than 100 hundred. The are based on real cases, so you get the chance to explore different stiles and find one that fits you. The same applies to fraises, key words, formats, etc.
This book is recommended for management and high level positions, not for entry or middle level employees.
My Resume, based on what I learned in this book, was praised by a top Headhunter in the country as very well written.

This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
I have used this book and found it to be a great concise resource. It's a good "how-to" book, suggestions then many examples. One can tell that Asher writes from great knowledge and experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't leave work without it, April 11, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
I've used Asher's Executive Bible for several years now. My brother recently lost his job at IBM and I immediately bought him a copy of his own.
In this market your resume is little more than another unwanted piece of junk mail. You need to be polished and must stand out from an increasingly large crowd to find a good position and further your career.
Asher's Executive Bible gives you practical examples of actually resumes. He points out successful presentation techniques and styles.
There's no need to dumb down your resume and grovel for a job - any job. Asher's Bible has allowed my to manage my career onward and upward. He can do the same for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars A lot of the same thing, May 30, 2001
This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
I was not exactly thrilled with this book. It seems that the author mearly published all of the resumes he has written for clients rather than show some different forms and styles. Granted, there are many ideas to be gotten out of the book, but I would have liked to see some variety in the styles of the resumes. They all looked much the same. I think "Executive Resumes" by Steven Provenzano has been a much more helpful resume book

4.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for Anyone with a Six Figure Income, February 16, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Asher's Bible of Executive Resumes and How to Write Them (Paperback)
This is a terrific source of ideas for anyone putting together an executive resume. Most of the tips don't apply to middle management resumes. Author advises it is OK to not list certain positions held less than one year; I would not recommend this. Otherwise, an excellent source of ideas and advice. Everyone earning a six figure income should have this book in their library.
