I bought this book for my 3 nephews/niece that just graduated from college. They said it was a great resource. One has landed a job, and the other two are in the running for second interviews. After reading it, I would give it not only to college graduates, but to anyone who has been thrown into the job hunt. Smart, funny, great guidelines for setting yourself apart from the crowd. A definite "thumbs up!"

"Do not outline your lips with a dark lip pencil unless you want to look like a cheap ho." (p. 152)

This is but one example of the kind of advice you'll get from Crazy Good Interviewing. Is it true? Probably. Is it useful? Only if you have absolutely no common sense whatsoever.

I'm giving this two stars instead of one just because the advice is pretty much standard for any interview prep book (compared with a few that I've perused). I'm giving it two stars instead of five because it just doesn't live up to the title. "Crazy Good" is a great idea; I read this book with the expectation that it'd teach me to stand out for the right reasons. However, it turned out that Crazy Good just means normal and competent, and it's contrasted with being "Crazy Bad"--a straw man of someone who is oblivious, rude, inappropriate, and usually all at once. In short, the authors waste tons of space describing Crazy Bad without getting into the nuance of what makes someone stand out from a crowd of other normal but competent people. I'd have preferred more substance without the gimmicky theme or the glib and cutesy filler.

I read this book and did what they said. It made my next 2 interviews much easier and allowed me to feel more comfortable during all types of interview.

Dr. Molidor is the interview guru. He spoke at my medical school about residency interviewing and did such a powerful presentation that I just had to buy this book. His work offers good common sense, in addition to practical advice on how to answer interview questions in a personal manner so that one appears thoughtful and polished. THis book is helping me prepare for my residency interviews this winter by helping me anticipate questions and how I can answer them. I am thankful that this comprehensive guide is available.

This book is a must have before embarking on any interview trail. As a 4th year medical student interviewing for residency, I noticed that I am head and shoulders above my peers as far as preparation when I walk into the interview room. Not only is it a fun and easy read, but the advice is dead on! John Molidor hits a home run with this book, it should be considered a necessity for your briefcase as you're making for your next career move!

I am a current 4th year medical student interviewing for residency, and Dr. Molidor's interview advice has been very useful to the process.

Dr. Molidor is a fantastic Dean, instructor, and author. His tips in the book for how to leave the interviewer wanting more, using 3's, and establishing personal connections are invaluable in any field. An excellent communicator in writing and in person, Dr. Molidor's book will set you apart!
