Also, unfortunately, the previoius reviewer didn't read!
On page 16 of the book, it clearly states that the the ideal resume FORMAT shown in Chapter 1 is "STRONGLY RECOMMENDED AS THE MODEL FOR TAILORING YOUR OWN RESUME", and that the 175 resume samples that follow were carefully chosen (FROM OVER 25,000 RESUMES)for their CONTENT (not format).
Further, you need to know that the EXACT ADVICE provided in this book has been followed by thousands of outplaced employees going through our company's career transition programs (from such client companies as Procter & Gamble, DuPont, PepsiCO, Kimberly-Clark, Washington Mutual, Scott Paper, US Department of Defense, and numerous others)with enormouse success. Numerous persons, to whom we have provided help, have commented that the resume format recommended by us (and contained in Chapter 1 of this book)played a significant role in helping them getjob interviews as well as job offers. Employers have frequently complimented our clients about the quality and effectiveness of their resumes, and they have enthusiastically shared this information with us after returning from their job interviews..
I would be willing to bet my next John Wiley royalty check that if the reader (i.e., previous reviewer) followed the recommended format and content strongly recommended in Chapter 1, that his resume played a major role in the success of his job hunting campaign.
I should also mention, that as the book's author, I am one of the leading US Career Authors (12 books, 6 best sellers - nearly 1 million copies sold )and have over 30 years employment-related background including a leading Fortune 200 corporation and an international executive search firm. I have read an estimated 150,000 resumes during my career, so I hopefully have the first-hand professional experience and advice that you can count on when preparing a strong resume that will serve you well!
Please read Chapter 1 of this book carefully! It will, I am sure, be of tremendous help in preparation of a highy effective resume that will serve you well in your job search!
Good luck, and my best for a successful career!

More than once, I have had prospective employers tell my clients that the quality of the cover letter grabbed their attention, that the resume created an interest in interviewing the candidate and the interview skills face to face sold them on the person's abilities......all using Mr. Beatty's experience reflected in his books.
His techniques and formats work!!!!
