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.

This book was the third book I read when I was laid off from the pharmaceuctical industry and was trying to get into medical sales (highly competitive market)... I did not fall asleep reading it (unlike the others)! Infact, most everything in this book was entertaining and easy to relate to which made it very easy apply. By stating this, I mean I was quickly able to think of a great one liner on a moment's notice when asked a difficult interview question. Crazy Good Interviewing was more useful to me than any other book or online resource, if I would have just read this to begin with, I would have saved a lot of time and money. I highly recommend this book because I did get the job and I knew I was going to because I kept nailing all the questions they asked me by using it's advice! For the new graduate all the way to the highly skilled professional, this book will give you the edge to set you apart from the rest!

I am currently a law school student and do not have much time for outside reading, but after hearing great things about Crazy Good Interviewing I decided to give it a try. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Everyone knows the job market for young lawyers is bleak, but after only my first year of law school I managed to land a highly paid job at a respectable law firm largely from using the tips Dr. Molidor gave. Today, I am currently in my second round of interviews for 7 different major law firms and will likely have a full time job offer by the end of the month. This book is worth reading no matter how busy you are (it is a very enjoyable read) and will help you in any job market (no matter how bleak). Buy this book if you want a leg up, I promise you it will be worth your time!

"Crazy Good Interviewing" is a MUST READ for anyone who plans on interviewing for jobs or professional schools! I applied to medical school this year and this book was GREAT preparation for my interviews. I have recommended it to many friends interviewing for professional schools and they have all given me positive feedback. Since my interviews, I have been accepted to medical schools and I give this book a lot of credit. I just want to thank Dr. Molidor for the role he played in my success.

This book is definitely worth buying, the feeling after leaving an interview and knowing that your interviewer genuinely wanted you to get the spot is priceless. Read this book If you want to stick out from the crowd in a positive way!!!!

As someone who spends approximately 5 months every year interviewing candidates for a variety of training programs, I was intereted in seeing what Crazy Good Interviewing might have to say 'from the other side'. What a fun and entertaining book! It made me laugh out loud, but also gave reasonable and doable advice about getting a person ready for an interview. This is a must read for anyone looking for a job, not just for professionals. And surprisingly, it is giving me good ideas about questions I will use this year in our interviewing season!
