As an experienced recruiter, I am always looking for books that go beyond the basics. This book is helpful in describing assessment techniques. It is written from a U.K. perspective, but translates well for U.S. readers. Pros: There is excellent food for thought on interviewing skills training. Cons: Weak information on finding candidates. Overall: Recommend for those looking to learn more about competency-based or behavioral-based interviewing.

In the era of "Strategic Human Resources Management", this study is a new breath for recruitment and selection process.
As written by Wood and Payne " the book effectively falls into four sections :
* The context of recruitment and selection.
* Attracting and sifting candidates.
* Assessing candidates.
* Decision making and evaluating."
To reinforce and dramatize what they are saying, Wood and Payne are going to run a case study throughout the book.
I highly recommend this invaluable book to HR practitioners.
