Helpful but packed with too much fluff
on September 1, 2009
I found this book helpful. Its full of great resume writing tips, but you have to read through alot of fluff to find them. While I appreciate the author wanting to explain the psychology behind her techniques, she spends a great deal of time discussing product ads (unrelated to resumes) and gives alot of "see how this helped Tom, Dick and Jane" stories that really don't provide any added benefit to the reader, in my opinion. I would prefer the author impart her knowledge in a direct, no non-sense manner. I do like that this book provides alot of before and after resume transformations, and encourages you to develop your own authentic resume, rather than ripping one off from the book. However the book could be reduced to one-third of its size without loosing any of its vital information.
