    Great, Practical Advice

    If you are a first-time job seeker you will find a lot of excellent tips, tools, and techniques in this book to help launch you on your career. If you are looking for a job mid-career or feel like you will need to, this book gives you advice on how to search, where to search, and even how to involve your family in your search. If you are an executive facing the possibility of having to lay off people, this book will help you understand how to do it in a manner that serves the interests of your company, the people you are laying off, and the people who will still have jobs. A book this useful doesn't come along very often. Buy one for yourself, then buy a few others and give them to friends or family in need.

    A great 'toolkit' for career survival

    As a recently laid off executive I found this book to be full of valuable information to help me cope with the job loss, organize an effective job search plan and be better prepared for the next job. A short review like this cannot do justice to the amount of helpful and practical information contained in the book. I highly recommend the book to any executive who has been laid off or feels at risk.
