Despite the low rating I gave this book, I would recommend it to a job seeker because it gives alternative views and ideas from main stream job seeking advice. Some of it is good, most of it isn't. However, if you are able to find on good piece of information from it and apply it successfully, it could make a world of difference.
The majority of Tony Beshara's experience is pre-internet. He keeps mentioning that you should call the "hiring agent". The fact is that most hiring starts at Human Resources and bypassing it is next to impossible anymore. I tried to attempt Tony's telemarketing style interview seeking and was told nearly every time to apply online.
I've had 5 job offers since I bought this book. All of them were from job boards such as Careerbuilder, which he does not recommend using. I have had no luck using Tony Beshara's methods.
I bought this 4 years ago (and I still complain too much), but I still listen to it all the time (at 2x speed because the speaker is a slow talker). Although, I don't follow the rules of the plan, it has still made me more conscious of when I complain and about 20% of the time I am able to catch myself and stop. (that's a significant amount of complaints and arguments avoided for me). I would recommend this to everyone, even if you don't complain.
