I found the general-purpose book concise and easy to read.

The book really puts you in the right frame of mind to answer questions that might surprise you and leave you fumbling for the right words.
Kelly Abbott
It prepares you well for the toughest interview questions and provides tips on what you should do after the interview is over.

To begin with, I must say that this book took too long to get to the meat and potatoes of the interview...the interview questions and possible responses to these questions. It drags the reader through over 100 pages of meaningless common sense issues that any high school student already knows based on the experiences they have had with their first job. Some examples of dribble...I'm sorry, words of wisdom... from these initial pages include 10 Ways to Win an Interview: 1. Be Prepared, 2. Dress Appropriately, 3. Be Confident, 4. Make Eye Contact, 5. Show Your Enthusiasm, 6. Know the Position, 7. Know the Industry, 8. Know the Company, 9. Practice, 10. Follow Up; and 10 Ways Not to Win an Interview: 1. Arrive Late, 2. Appear Bored, 3. Forget to Do Your Research, 4. Speak in a Long-winded Manner, 5. Speak in Too Brief a Manner, 6. Speak in a Negative Manner, 7. Talk about Money, 8. Appear Conceited, 9. Share Unrealistic Goals, 10. Appear Unkempt. "Wow thanks Mr. Wizard is there anything else I should know?" What kind of horse sense dribble is that? Do I need a book to tell me this? It is the readers life that is being robbed by wasting a single second reading this garbage.
The final section of the book, does pick up the slack a little bit by delving deeper into the interview questions and actually sounds intelligent when asking and answering the questions...at least when answering in the affirmative. The questions are answered with sample examples of how you should and should not respond and a general explanation of the question. As I mentioned, the affirmative answers are good and the description of the questions are good, but the negative answer are down right embarrassing due to the fact that they are so ridiculous.

I found the general-purpose book concise and easy to read. It is well written and divided into relavent chapters with tips, question/answers scenarios, checklists. The book may seem simple but job hunting should not be a rocket science. It helps you get the important and basic things done correctly, and then your natural talent and personality should carry you the rest of the way.
It is VERY helpful specially when you are in the high-stress period of interviewing. Good chapters on preparing for the interviews and then following up.
Ive looked through many books and found this one to be the best if you are only looking for one book. If you have been job-hunting for over a year, you should find a specialized book relavent to your field of expertise, or consider changing your career.
I give this book partial credit for helping me find my current job!
I used the 2001 edition to find a job in 2006. I was offered the job within a week.

I went on a cruise and took this book with me, knowing that I had an interview two days after I returned home. Where I work, we use an interview panel and it's a very intimidating. I studied the entire book while I was gone, and felt prepared when I returned home.

While I was in the "hot seat," the questions triggered responses suggested in the book that I wouldn't have thought of on my own. I walked out of the interview feeling that I had nailed it, unlike previous interviews for various positions within the company. I was offered the job the next day.

Four of my friends read the book and also have new jobs. The book really puts you in the right frame of mind to answer questions that might surprise you and leave you fumbling for the right words. The book is easy to read, but more importantly, it makes you think of how you would respond ahead of time.
