    When Dr. Phil's viewers need help turning their job search woes into employment success, he turns to Tony Beshara. Beshara, who has been in the business of finding jobs for professionals of all types for over 30 years, has personally placed thousands of individuals, and runs one of the most successful placement and recruiting firms in the United States. He knows firsthand what works and what doesn't, as well as the heavy emotional toll a frustrating job search can take.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Tony Beshara’s story?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

  • A Complaint Free World

    In your hands, you hold the secret to transforming your life. Big words? Yes, but this is a plan that has already proven itself with millions of people around the world. In a Sunday-morning sermon, Will told his congregation he wanted to make the world a complaint-free zone and, to prove he was serious, he passed out purple bracelets to each church member and offered them a challenge. "If you catch yourself complaining, take the bracelet and move it to the other wrist."

    Story

    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.
