Great cram session for an interview!

Facing numerous tough interviews in one week, I picked up this audio book to see if I had left any stones unturned.
This was a great read. The narrator reads really well and doesn't bore you. And it doesn't sound like list being read to you. Of course most of it is obvious, but you need to HEAR it, especially right before the interview. (I read it about 2 days before my interviews started).
I remember sitting in the interview and hearing the answers.
I accepted offers for all the positions that I applied for.
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK. It does help.

Do some work

The point of this audio book is to stimulate your preparation for interviews by posing often-asked questions and then providing general insight on how to answer. He emphasizes that results only come when YOU sit down and create your own and practice them until they become part of you. You truly get out of this what you put into it. Great for those who ACTIVELY are seeking to improve interview skills.

Listen to this before every interview

I will echo the previous reviewers, and say that this really helped me answer the "tell me about yourself". It is also fantastic in getting you hyped up with the right tone for the interview. I used this before going through a several-week round of interviews, and I re-listened to it about once a week. Even though, yes, it is somewhat basic information that you may already intuitively know, the recording forces you to focus. I have listened to several other of these type of books, and this was my hands down favorite.

There are better books out there on the subject...

Not quite as good as some of the other books I’ve read or listened to on the subject. The narrator also did bore me with his monotone voice. However, with that said, this book is still very good and provides tons of tips and advice. It is very insightful and educational and I only hope to remember much of this when I am being asked similar questions during one of my interviews.

Great refresher; still relevant!

It's been a while since I interviewed and this book helped me to better prepare. Worth the time. Highly recommend.

Excellent starting point for interview technique

What made the experience of listening to 101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions the most enjoyable?

Some great ideas well narrated. Definitely worth a listen as there is very effective advice in this book.

Any additional comments?

The book concentrates on interviews in the corporate sector - it would be great if the book could also talk about Academia based interviews.

Excellent book

This is the kind of book you should hear multiple times because it is such valuable advice. It is well written, interesting, and neither too long nor too short. It includes self-assessment tips that are critical.

Great Tool!

I was just dreading the thought of starting the job search process and interviewing again only a year after changing jobs. I bought this book because I wanted to get some tips and refresh my knowledge about the interview questions that would be coming my way. I listened to the book twice and took the personal inventory as prescribed. This week I had my first interview since listening to the book and I am happy to report that I walked into the interview feeling confident and ready. I walked out of the interview feeling it was a success. Of course, time will tell, but I am confident a second interview with this employer is very likely. I highly recommend this book. Those of us who have been around the interview track a few times will find the information familiar, but the book dishes out good common sense and offers the interviewer prespective which is helpful to have. There are even more benefits to new job seekers or those who haven't been interviewing in awhile.

Good at how to know yourself

I have not known how to describe myself until I came across this audiobook. I don't know how to answer the question of who you are until I listened to it. Right now, I am a little bit confident.

Happy to have pruchased this book

I had to apply for my own job in the company I work for and they also added another job in the profile that was done by my work colleague. This book was very helpful and also made me laugh at the tricks I could employ during the interview. The one piece of advice that I got and used was worth every penny I spent on the book is the question ?Tell me something about yourself that I don?t see in your CV?. The trick about asking a question at the end of the introduction worked a treat and gave me time to take that first drink of water while taking a deep breath and getting a ready for the next question. I changed some of the wording to suit my situation but I could see from the outset that they were impressed with my opening and set the tone for the rest of the interview.

I got the job!

Any additional comments?

What can I say, I downloaded this, followed the steps, adapted the answers and reactions then a day later landed myself the job with a 30% pay rise from my old one. It was very helpful indeed and I couldn't recommend it enough.

Too American!

I am sure there are probably lots of useful tips in this book, but I can't make my way beyond the broad American accent, the cliches and the disingenuous language. Not for me!
