Makes Sense, but easier said than done.

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

Will help out any job seeker as long as they are willing to put in the work. This book is the bare bones of interviewing, not necessarily the interviewing for dummies I was looking for. The book was dry but the author put in a little humor, which made it bearable.
