I read the 2nd edition, borrowed from a Library. I am shopping for the 3rd edition, to buy. I keep getting overdue fines on this book!
It is really useful, giving great ideas about what to ask. Questions I want the answer to, before I decide if I want to work at a place, or for a person. Also, questions that make me look thoughtful and professional.
This is a useful book for any job seeker.
