This is actually an excellent book that acts as a starting point to prepare your interviews.

If one tries to tailor his answers to sound like the ones given, he will sound too much like he's reading from a script.

Compared to other books on the subject, this one puts me to sleep even though it has good ideas.

As the title suggests, the book lists the most common interview questions. If you have no idea what those questions are, then you might find the book somewhat helpful.
Along with each question there is an example answer which usually does not apply to the reader. After each example answer there is a brief snippet about how you should try to to answer that type of question. Unfortunately, these snippets are far too brief to be of much help to the reader (some are a single sentence). If there were more emphasis put on how to answer the question, and less space given to the example answers, I think it would have been a more useful book.
I suggest "the Unofficial Guide to Acing the Interview" by Michelle Tullier, published by Hungry Minds. This book will help you get into the proper frame of mind for your interview. It will also help you understand the employer's underlying concerns behind those tough interview questions. When you know why the employer is asking a question, you can form your best answer.
Good luck!

This book is not for job seekers that have been on at least one job interview. The author covers 250 questions in 150 pages, which basically means there is little worthwhile analysis behind each question and answer. If you are looking to regurgitate the answers presented in this book, be my guest and use it as a reference. But as a graduate student at Stanford University, I found little useful information contained in this book and would not recommend using it in your job search either.

This is actually an excellent book that acts as a starting point to prepare your interviews.

The early sections are a good framework to prepare a solid speech on why you're out there looking for a job, what your motivations are, what value you can bring etc.

The list of questions may seem boring but it's clearly an invitation to do your homework. Sit down and practice, practice and practice. This type of work isn't the kind of involvement your hear very frequently and I know very few people who have enough to actually do it.

This book will help you be prepared for pretty much any type of questions, as long as you put down the required practice hours. Just zipping through it once or twice will do you no good. It'll give you the feeling that you're prepared when in fact your not. The only way to make the most of this very good book is to actually practice every question aloud, in front of someone else if you have to.

This is an excellent preparation tool, that you should acquire early in your job search quest, as glancing over it won't unleash the power it contains.

Format: Paperback
As an Executive Recruiter, I found this book to be quite helpful. I was able to see the potential in all the questions and not only from an interviewers point of view, but as a candidate. I made a list of "tough" and "my favorite" interview questions and email them to my candidates and clients. This way they are prepared. I also suggest to my candidates that they use the questions as a guideline to formulate thier own questions for the company. An interview works both ways.
I recommend this book as a staple for recruiters, HR Managers, and candidates. It's best to over prepare, than under prepare.

There are some good tips about strategies and about the importance of hitting on broad themes, but, like most books of its kind, it is too general to be of much value.

If you are not comfortable with the interview process, all the information that you can collect in advance will be a great help to you. Here is a good place to start.
These questions, or some form there of, will appear in an interview. The wise reader will take each one a prepare an answer just in case. This process of preparation will build confidence and provide insight into the entire process.
The book is not a great literary work, but it gets the point across. It will provide knowledge into the terrifying world of the interview, and should help build one's skills for when the time comes.

Anyone looking for a career change or just starting out should definitely read this book. The questions and answers are very informative. I was especially impressed with the section on Illegal Interview Questions. I've been asked these type of questions in the past, but was unsure on how to respond to them. Now if they ever come up again in the future, I will be prepared!

Format: Audio Cassette Verified Purchase
This audio book provides 250 job interview questions, basic ones, and very short responses that are designed to steer clear of controversy or create a poor impression. However, I'm not recommending it to most people.

Compared to other books on the subject, this one puts me to sleep even though it has good ideas. While I did not find the book engaging, some may.

I'm basically always up for reading/listening to another book that discusses interviewing. For me the value is on the side of the interviewer since that is one of my job functions. In case I am the interviewee, I somewhat feel prepared.

Books of this nature provide value to anybody that will be in job interviews on either side of the table. I learned the hard way that I need such books, because my first interviews didn't go well due to the fact that I didn't know what to ask. I'm sure I appeared unprepared and even stupid and felt ten times worse. After that, I made it my business to understand the interviewing process well and always be prepared.

The value of this book is limited because it doesn't go into any detail. I think one should be authentic in an interview and not provide "canned answers" where books such as this could lead. Still, if you're being interviewed and you really don't have a good answer or one you're comfortable with, you might as well give a very short memorized answer right out of this book. Nothing wrong with that as long as other parts of the interview are more engaging and authentic! You will appear well-prepared and informed about what makes for an acceptable short answer.

The person being interviewed has to at some point show some leadership in the interview, unless it is for a very low-paid position.
